Project Nyx is an experimental sci-fi multiplayer shooter that merges frenzied ground combat and chaotic 6DoF space battles into one seamless experience. Warp reality. Defy gravity. Push the limits.

Mixing class-based mechanics and topsy-turvy zero-gravity vomit sim physics, Project Nyx is a unique sci-fi space-’em-up that’s “unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before” and has now pre-launched on Steam to find out what you think.

“I’ve been working on this project sporadically for well over a year now,” Major 7th Games’ solo developer Kyle Lautenbach explains. “It posed so many design and technical challenges that felt almost insurmountable to overcome. This naturally led to a bit of a long-winded development cycle, especially considering the lack of funding. I have therefore decided to announce the project a lot earlier than initially intended, to see if there’s any interest out there in this type of experience. The internet’s response will help determine the game’s future.”

I know Kyle. He’s a rad guy. I’ve also played an alpha build of the game, and did some graphic design work on the Project Nyx website and Steam page.
