Players are cast into a three-dimensional galaxy they must explore, colonize, and defend in Mithas Games' Nexus. After drifting through space for 70 years, the player's character is discovered and awakened by a passing patrol. Following some training and a promotion to frigate officer, the real work begins, with an espionage mission in the orbit of Jupiter. This sci-fi real-time strategy game features 30 missions in six campaigns, plus another two dozen randomly generated missions for additional replay value.
Initially developed under the title "Imperium Galactica 3," the game's original producers decided to change the name to reflect a number of design advances over the earlier Imperium Galactica games, wishing to release it as a "full-fledged game in its own right." In the summer of 2003 the game's expected publisher, CDV Software, decided to drop the title from its lineup. It was picked up the following autumn by publisher HD Interactive and renamed once again, to Nexus.
In spite of the game's twisting history and numerous name changes, Nexus is designed to update and enhance the mix of deep developmental strategy and fast-paced real-time tactics that succeeded in its Imperium Galactica predecessors. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
