History

Initially, "STRACO: Purge" was slated to be released Spring 2013, however, it suffered many delays and setbacks. First, it was pushed back due to the work done for the V2.0 update to Episode 1. Then, it was pushed again due to new art assets being requested and... a baby! Yes, STRACO had a baby. No, it didn't, but Mike Johnson's wife did! :) After all of these delays Mike decided to combine both Episode 2 (Purge) and Episode 3 (Conquest) into one package, and that delayed things even more! Hurray! By Summer 2014 the game was over 16 months late, but it was DONE! STRACO: Purge and Conquest was finally submitted to Peer Review early June 2014, and it is currently working it's way towards a happy, bug free, release!

Selected Articles

  • "developer NVO Games has effectively bridged the gap between the first's promising mechanics and the sequel's comfort with those same mechanics, morphing the games into one of the finer series on the indie channel in the process."
    - Tim Hurley, theXBLIG
  • "From v1.0, to 2.0, to a two-part sequel, the STRACO games have done nothing but get better. Haven’t tried the dual-stick shooting/strategy hybrid original? Go download it now. Liked the original? Go give this developer another dollar. As action/strategy hybrids go, it doesn’t get much better."
    - Steven Hurdle, Writings of Mass Deduction
