    Today Kovok has announced that the closed beta of Nebula Realms will now be delayed to the first quarter of 2016, with the reasons for this delay being.
    • We couldn't go as fast as we wanted because we had to re-adapt quite a bit of work from Unity 4.5 to Unity 5.
    • We are moving the company to Spain so that will take some time off work.
    But to make up for the delay, Kovok have made a 40 min long video, showing the WIP of the character editor and some public and personal spaces. Please note only Male avatar is shown, with Kovok saying it's due to the fact they can only do one at a time, what i guess means the female avatar is still in it's early stages and not yet ready to be shown, but they have said the Female avatar will be in the next video.

    As always a WIP video means that its not the final graphics render & character movements and Kovok have confirmed that the character movements is not final and will be changed.


    Lastly, you might have spotted i was calling it "Nebula Realms" & not "Project Nebula", this is because Kovok have now picked to change the name of the game from today to "Nebula Realms", you can check the new logo below.

      This is looking really good. The atmosphere is more inviting and the avatars are getting a lot better at creativity, especially changing the color of the clothes than buying one color at a time like PS Home had done (or possibly only for a certain type of solid color clothing piece). I also like the way you can make different kinds of colored skins and styles to be your own comic book superhero/supervillian, or any type of fantasy character like an Orc or an Elf. I also hope in the future they'll make furry variations for us to play with, i.e. werewolf or kitty. The environmental public and personal spaces itself has very good lightning effects and more space to run around in.

      It's good to see progress on a possible Home replacement, it looks promising. :)

      I see they like the same royalty-free music that I do! lol

      Did Kovok ask people what they wanted? I would have preferred a November beta to infinite ways to change my avatar's eyebrows. Bye, Nebula Whatever; hello Atom universe.

      I really dont see Atom Universe being out on PS4 this year also, plus my biggest problem is they dont plan on letting you edit your avatars looks at launch, even know its one of the biggest parts of a good social platform.

      I dont wish to be limited to picking from a list of presets only.

      Right now I'm personally sticking with Four Kings Casino, its up and running for months on steam with a PS4 beta well on track for this year. I just wish they will grow it to be more than just a casino, but new content takes time as you have to get a strong base of code made first and thats what they are doing.
