About Rebel Galaxy Outlaw

About this game

Out of cash, out of luck, out on the fringe. Juno Markev has a killer to tail, a debt to pay, and more trouble headed her way. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw takes place in a greasy, blue-collar world of outlaws, truckers, cops and thieves.

Strap into a variety of spacecraft, settle a score in a filthy space-bar over a game of 8-ball, rock out to over 24 hours of music, and engage in white-knuckle dogfights.

In the Dodge Sector it’s hard to get by – and even harder to get even.

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is an open-world space combat adventure game, spread across the nearly 40 systems of the Dodge Sector. Play as a mercenary, a trader, a pirate, or whatever mix of the three you feel fits you best. With an engaging storyline and a full conversation system, you can follow the narrative, or ignore it and forge your own path at any time.

Engage in white-knuckle combat, and use the included Autopursuit function to effortlessly fly like an ace, instead of space-jousting for hours. Save up your credits, buy a new ship, kit it out, and then paint it in a fully-fledged 3d-painting application. Make a fortune exploiting lucrative trade routes. Join guilds, help or hunt those in distress, and buy and outfit your own space station. Grab a tip in a local bar and hunt for hidden treasure. In your down-time, shoot some 8-ball, play some dice-poker, or aim for the high-score in an arcade game in the local seedy watering hole. Flip through the 7 included radio stations and vast music library for just the right track to fit your current mood.

A fun space sandbox that oozes blue collar, US heartland style.

Akton
Verified purchase
Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is a single-player, space sandbox game developed by Double Damage Games. It was initially an Epic Store exclusive in 2019 and released on Steam and other platforms a year later. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is infamous for being the first Epic store exclusive. This decision led to review-bombing and bad press. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is also not the best space sandbox game available. Elite Dangerous and its peers do just about every game loop better.  However, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw packs a lot into a small package. The poor early reviews had little to do with the game itself. Double Damage Games is a small indie studio and lacks the resources of a AAA behemoth. You play as Juno Markev, an out-of-luck ex-space pirate. The opening cell-shaded cinematic shows her crashing on a planet after unsuccessfully confronting her husband's killer. Juno calls in a favour to get a modest replacement. She then must juggle repaying her debts, upgrading her ship and unravelling her past. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw's gameplay consists mainly of combat with some trading, piracy and asteroid mining. These earn credits to afford better ships and equipment. Experimenting and exploring are helpful but optional. They can reveal poorly explained mechanics, side quests, rare weapons, lucrative mining spots or beautiful nebulae.  Unlike Elite Dangerous and similar games, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw has a light, grungy, blue collar, "space trucker" style. The default radio station plays heartland rock and advertises discount ammunition and cheap beer. All technology looks retro-futuristic, old and second-hand. Many star systems are named after working-class southern or central US states. The region of space is called Dodge, like the famous lawless US frontier town. You can play eight-ball pool or dice poker to unwind, the genre equivalent of fishing.  Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is the prequel to Rebel Galaxy, Double Damage Game's previous game. They share the setting and style. However, the games are different. Rebel Galaxy is about flying capital ships on a 2D plane fighting with broadside cannons. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is about 3D fighter combat. Instead, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is a homage to Wing Commander: Privateer and Freelancer. While there is a central campaign and side missions, you can ignore them to explore, fight or trade as you see fit. You can unlock buddies to fight with you temporarily. You can side with the law, against it or both.  Even the graphics look like upscaled MCGA,...

Do you like fast and frenetic space combat, like the old school games? If YES! is THE answer, than you should give Rebel Galaxy Outlaw a try. Fast peaced combat (cockpit view reccomanded as like as the use of a gamepad, but you can use a keabord like i do, or an hotas if you wish), system to system travel, high speed travel in real time with random military/pirates/merchants encounters with distress signals (that might turn out to be a trap for you). Energy distribution system (like in Elite Dangerous) that force you to choose to maximize engine or shields or weapons. Weapons and missiles selection: if your running out of power you can unlink weapons or deactivate energy weapons to save energy. Cool radio with even classical music (e.g. Wagner - Ride of The Valkyries, with that on high volume, you can kick every pirate's @$$ ...maybe most of them ) and the ability to import even your own playlist. The best Pimp-my-Ship tool (it's not that easy to use for a newbie, but if you use Photoshop, you will feel at home with this tool). It has a main story (...of revenge) and side quests, that unlock specials weapons or other gear. It has flaws aswell, like a small selection of ships and a not that wide range of weapons, no manual landing or lift off like in Elite Dangerous :( Tend to be a little repetitive and due to the shitstorm for the temporary exclusive, other addons scheduled has been deleted, (thanks internet folks) so the modding tools maybe will be deliverd one day....

An accessible spaceghetti western.

Paul Price
Verified purchase
A fun light space shooter adventure. With a tongue in cheek western setting gives this a spaceghetti western feel. Not a heavy weight in the genre this is an accessible homage to the space shooter/western genres.

I haven't played all the way through this game yet, so maybe there are some more surprises in store. It has been fun so far, but I feel like there is something missing. Maybe there is a little too much repetition? I'm not sure. It's a good game and absolutely worth the money even at full price, but it feels more like a tribute to several classic games (and one TV show) than something original and groundbreaking.

Good but flawed space sim

Fanatical User
Verified purchase
Good game in the largely dead Space Sim genre. Some odd choices in terms of overall design, but if you like the genre you'll probably like this. Highly recommend a gamepad, though - other control options just aren't great, which is my biggest complaint about the game personally. Because I don't like gamepads for this style of game I almost dropped it another star but my overall enjoyment of the game was high enough I let it be.

Fun arcadey space romp.

Nandeskai

Took a few tries to get into this and did get some good old style fun from RGO. I think the comparisons to Freelancer and other such classics are a little overplayed, it gives that itch a little bit of a scratch, but I don't think there is much to pair the two other than a surface level match. I like the main character and spent a lot of my time playing pool on various space stations, but did reach a point in the story where I felt I hit a difficulty wall (having been comfortably winning battles suddenly i'm being almost insta killed) and didn't feel like grinding missions to upgrade to continue. It does have the grind for money/upgrade ship/take on harder mission/earn more money/upgrade ship further loop, which is always a funtime though the upgrades and ship choices are a little limited. It is very arcadey, so don't expect any sort of nod towards realism, which is fine. The music is fantastic, really sets the mood and it's worth leaving the intro screen up as a mini duke box with several radio stations to flick through whilst on your space adventures. To sum up, I enjoyed it and would recommend. Had a couple of fun days though wandered off and couldn't get back into it again, though may well return in the future.
