Rebel Galaxy The edge of everything is dangerous territory. Are you a cunning pirate? A cold-hearted mercenary? A shrewd trader? A scoundrel with a heart of gold? Maybe all of the above?

One thing’s for damn sure. You’re going to find out.


Random Universe[edit | edit source]

Rebel Galaxy takes place in a massive, randomly generated universe filled with nebulae, junkyards, asteroid belts, and ice fields. No two star systems will ever look the same. Explore. Discover new trade routes. Scavenge from the hulks of derelicts. Mine. Hunt. Protect the less fortunate, or prey on the unwitting.

This isn’t a strategy game[edit | edit source]

Rebel Galaxy has been designed from the outset for spaceship combat action. It’s not about clicking and issuing orders. It’s about feeling the concussion of a broadside blast, and the impact on your deflectors as they absorb a particle beam meant for your shield generator.

Zoom in to control an individual turret and blast incoming torpedoes out of the sky. Lock onto a series of targets and let a fan of image-recognition missiles take them out in a pyrotechnic display. Protect your wounded side in a last desperate bid to make warp distance.

Take a breath when it’s over.[edit | edit source]

But it pays to think, too. It’s not action-only around here. A shrewd player can take a very different approach. Hire a mercenary or two, set your turrets to custom AI stances, and talk your way out of a scrap. Hang out in the bar, and you might get a hot tip about a relief vessel sent to a world wracked by famine. A smart trader might want to get there first, and offload a few tons of meat while the price is right. An unscrupulous one might make sure the relief vessel never arrives at all.

Or you could choose to be virtuous, too. There’s always that option…
