Naev - A 2D space trading and combat game.


Naev is a space trading and combat game, inspired by Escape Velocity.

Played from a top-down perspective with isometric sprites, the player is free to explore the galaxy as they see fit, trading or pirating their way to a vast fortune.

Naev is set in a futuristic science fiction environment, in which the player finds themself in the wake of a massive galactic cataclysm which erupted from the Sol system and destroyed everything within tens of light years, resulting in a massive, volatile nebula.
