NOVA II: New Dawn
|NOVA II: New Dawn|
NOVA II: New Dawn is a limit-removing megawad released in 2015. It is the sequel to 2014's NOVA: The Birth, and follows the same concept of being predominantly made by Doomworld users who were newer and/or inexperienced with mapping.
The project was started on 14 June, 2014, by Michael Kilderry (kildeth), who founded and led the first NOVA through most of its development. Kilderry later stepped down and development was taken over by Darryl Steffen (dobu gabu maru).
Completed in late November 2015, the WAD was uploaded to the idgames archive, though due to some major bugs found after the release, the WAD was patched and re-uploaded twice. The final version (1.2) was uploaded to the archives on March 27, 2016.
In 2018, NOVA II was included in the Top 25 Missed Cacowards.
NOVA II: New Dawn provides one new monster, the Hierophant, which can occur in two forms. They replace two hanging obstacles.
A third instalment of the NOVA series was started in early 2016, soon after NOVA II's completion. On the 2nd of December 2019, the first beta (RC1) was released. A second beta (RC2b), was released on the 3rd of January 2020.
