SuperNova is a JavaScript-based programming language and environment for creating virtual reality applications. It aims to simplify the process of VR software development by abstracting away some of the complexities associated with other environments. SuperNova provides tools for 3D design, animation, physics simulations, and event handling in VR scenes that can be experienced through headsets like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The language is compatible with web technologies such as WebGL for easy distribution through web browsers without the need for additional plugins or downloads. SuperNova primarily targets indie developers and small teams looking to develop immersive experiences without having an extensive background in traditional game development or computer graphics.
