Novaquark is currently developing Dual Universe, a continuous, single-shard MMORPG that takes place in a multi-planetary, sci-fi world that features player-driven economy, politics, trade, and warfare. Players can freely modify the world by creating structures, spaceships, and even orbital stations, giving birth to empires and civilizations. To realize this, the company developed several proprietary technologies like its innovative Continuous Single-Shard Cluster (CSSC) server solution, as well as a state-of-the-art voxel engine and procedural generation tools. In 2016, Dual Universe successfully ran the third-largest video game Kickstarter campaign worldwide.

Formed by veterans from Sony, Apple, Aldebaran Robotics, and more, Novaquark is recruiting the best talent to help make Dual Universe a reality.
