About Rebel Galaxy

About this game

Rebel Galaxy is a swashbuckling space adventure, with action-packed combat, exploration, discovery, trade, and “negotiation” with the outlandish denizens at the edge of the known universe.

As the commander of an immensely powerful star destroyer, you’ll battle pirates, explore anomalies, befriend aliens, scavenge battle wreckage, mine asteroids, and discover artifacts. Choose your path as a roguish do-gooder, crafty space-trader or power-hungry privateer – or maybe a little of each! Buy larger and more powerful craft with your hard-earned credits, and outfit them with a variety of wicked weapons and defenses. Set in a galaxy of fantastic sights, and secrets to be found, Rebel Galaxy is above all a space epic of adventure, exploration, and combat.

The edge of the universe is a pretty dangerous place, so watch your back.rières.

Privateer-like mission structure with ship combat that feels kinda like old wooden warships instead of spaceships. Soundtrack is just stupidly good. Gameplay is definitely repetitive, but I never ceased to have fun with it. I wish it got a more direct sequel, although I'm not mad about Rebel Galaxy Outlaw being a thing either.

An interesting space romp. I'd played "Rebel Galaxy: outlaw" prior to playing this one, I get the impression it came out after RG as the systems seem more refined. I find the Naval broadside firing mechanic different from the traditional nose cone shooting you usually see in these types of games, not really good or bad just different (and takes a bit getting used to). I'm only an hour in, the story seems fairly standard. Graphically, it works, the characters seem a bit... abstract...but nothing too terrible (at least it's not ME:A bad). All and all, a solid game
