In Nova Lux, you take charge of a federation of orphaned alien species that have escaped dying star systems in the wake of a galactic apocalypse. The Universe is winding down. Entropy is increasing to maximum. You must manage precious resources through trade, conflict, and exploration to sustain biological life and power your Ark of Salvation, Hydrogen Converters, and Biosphere Engine — all while building a star colony that can outlast the end of the universe and give it new light, a.k.a., "nova lux".
Nova Lux is for 1 to 6 players, lasts roughly 45-60 minutes and combines resource management, engine-building, and off-turn action mechanisms to make for fast, compelling, and continuous gameplay.
