Rebel Galaxy

Postby DjchunKfunK » Wed Oct 15, 2014 3:16 pm

Travis Baldree and Erich Schaefer, the founders of Runic and the guys behind Diablo, have just announced their new game Rebel Galaxy a space sandbox game that sees the player take control of huge capital ships as they explore the galaxy. It is being made by their new studio Double Damage Games. It's coming to PC and PS4 in 2015.



You can find a more details here.

It sounds really interesting, with sort of a Diablo in space feel, but with a bigger focus on story and characters.

New preview

I like the way it is being compared to Sid Meir's Pirates.

There is an indie game called Zigfrak (I think) that tries to do the Diablo-in-space thing, it's really rough around the edges though. If it really doesn't take itself too seriously will this finally be a new space-sim that doesn't become an X-style autism simulator?

This game is not a sim, it's much more arcadey in nature.

Space game then ¬_¬ So far there has been no mention of managing an empire, so it might actually be good.

You only control the one ship, you are an explorer more than someone ruling an empire.

Sounds like they might not have got the balance between procedural generation and fun quite right, which is a bit of a shame.
