If turn-based/real-time Sci-Fi Strategy Games are your thing than you’ve found the right place. With Sidius Nova we want to immerse you in a fierce struggle between Aliens and Humans on your mobile device. The game consists of two parts: map and battle. On the map you command your Mothership to explore, collect resources, build and spawn ships and construct Warp Gates to outsmart your opponent. The battles are action-loaded skirmishes between fleets where you use the ships you built to push back and destroy the enemy. The right type of strategy is key here as each ship has different attributes that make it very powerful against others. If this sounds promising then have a look at the different tabs and sign up to our forum.
In this first video tutorial for Sidius Nova we are covering the map part of the game. We're giving you an insight into the basic functionality of the map and explain the different options available to players to invent their own strategies to combat their opponent.

We realized that we had a lot of content about Sidius Nova out there, but nothing really explained the actual game play... So we're catching up =)
The tutorial covers the map part of the game and explains things like basic control, UI elements, movement, dividing fleets, resource collection, Warp Gate placement, Quantum Teleportation, as well as how to use probes.
There are a few more details that we don't mention about resource collection, i.e.:
Our goal for the map is to create a platform that provides enough options to give the player plenty of choices in terms of strategy.
We also set up our Forum here on indiDB if you want to share your ideas, give feedback or ask questions you have. Looking forward to seeing you there!
We'll be creating a separate tutorial for the battle part of Sidius Nova, and keep you updated here on indieDB.
