Hello ! We are Novaquark, the developers behind Dual Universe, an ambitious sci-fi MMO that features a continuous, single-shard game world shared by every player at once. What sets our game apart is the level at which players can freely modify that shared world to create structures, spaceships, and even entire cities, giving birth to empires and civilizations. Dual Universe focuses on emergent gameplay, and features player-driven economy, politics, trade, and warfare.

Our dream is to create the first-ever true metaverse, a shared digital world where players can live alternate lives among the stars. We are inspired by books like Ready Player One, and envision a world that sci-fi fans have been dreaming of all their lives.

The company has developed several proprietary technologies for the game, such as its innovative Continuous Single-Shard Cluster (CSSC) server solution, as well as a state of the art voxel engine and procedural generation tools.
