The NOVAGEN team.

Here are the pictures of the people that made it!


I don't have any picture of Paul Woakes, sorry; it seems he's a very secret and busy man.

Many people worked on Mercenary and Novagen games. It's been great to see how all of them were surprised with the site, and how they helped! You'll find many of the names listed here in the games (buildings or planets) (contact me for any mistake or if your name is missing !):
