Rebel Galaxy (PC) Announcement - Screenshot 1

Double Damage Games has revealed their debut title, the “action-packed, swashbuckling space opera” Rebel Galaxy. As the commander of a star cruiser, players will pilot through a randomly generated galaxy filled with pirates, anomalies, aliens as a rogue, trader, privateer, or somewhere in-between. The ship will be customizable with a variety of offensive and defensive upgrades that will be purchased using credits earned by harvesting and scavenging resources from artifacts, asteroids, and wreckage. Players will also be able to interact with aliens to negotiate trades and gather information. Although, going by my experience in negotiating with aliens, any talks will most likely end in a fight to the death.

Bearing in mind that this is Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000, one of the better titles to use the licenses, and that the game will remain in the user’s library, this is a pretty nice bonus. A cross-compatibility update with Steam is set to go live “soon.” GOG-ers (if we can make that a thing) can head here to sign up for a copy.
