In the distant future, when humans had colonized the galaxies, technology prevailed. Pioneers roamed the galaxy in search of riches and treasures. After an uneventful century of typical interstellar corporate greed and economic oppression, the dreaded Voinians came. Mankind was not prepared.
Now, the brutal Voinian war wages on, with no end in sight. The hated foes are bent on destroying humankind with their exceptionally powerful space fleet. Because of the war effort, much of space is still unexplored. Are there other aliens to meet, trade with and learn from? Can the galaxy ever attain true peace?
EV Override is Ambrosia's huge follow-up to the classic Escape Velocity. Much like the original game, you are cast as a pioneering space captain with only a small shuttlecraft, a bit of money, and a strong sense of destiny. But the similarity ends there.
Override features a universe five times the size of the original game, and a slew of populated worlds within. Gone are the neverending wars which raged in the original game; instead, winning critical battles can change the face of the universe. Or, if you're happy with the existing balance of power, you can make a living as a humble trader. Just watch out for those pesky renegades, who want nothing more than to swipe the precious cargo from your holds.
Override also takes advantage of an improved Escape Velocity engine for improved game play, and enhanced flexibility for scenario developers. Additionally, the game contains stunning new graphics and sound, over 250 new missions, a multitude of human and alien governments, and all the excitement of the original EV game.
It's time to rediscover addiction. The unexplored universe awaits!
Explore the galaxy, earn cash, improve your social standing, or chuck it all and become an evil space pirate. Fulfill your Han Solo fantasies in this sci-fi adventure.
