Original EVE Online Designer, Hrafnkell Oskarsson, Joins Novaquark to Expand Dual Universe

Novaquark, the company creating the seamless virtual online civilization Dual Universe, has acquired the talent of Hrafnkell Oskarsson, one of the original designers of EVE Online. Together, Novaquark and Oskarsson will be working on Dual Universe, the giant multi-planetary sandbox universe where potentially millions of people will be able to invent new stories for themselves, create new political systems, economies, cities, and empires.

Traditional approaches in gaming and entertainment are based around companies spending substantial amounts of money to create content, and sell it. Most of the time, players have little influence on the value of the platform, as they passively consume the content, and then move on to another game. Novaquark aims to reverse this logic with its one-of-a-kind technology providing users with a stage to collectively create the content and share it together, at an unprecedented scale. The value of Novaquark comes entirely from its users and the material they generate, giving the power back to them instead of a centralized system.
