Fans of adventure, exploration and combat should take note of the upcoming Double Damage Games space epic, Rebel Galaxy. It is the debut title for the studio and gives players command of a powerful star cruiser. Players are then let loose upon a massive, randomly generated galaxy to explore. Of course, there will be plenty of danger and mystery to be found in order to keep things interesting.

According to the co-founder of Double Damage Games, Travis Baldree, they have been hard at work on Rebel Galaxy since the announcement of the studio. According to him it is a game that everyone involved has wanted to make for a long time.

The game will feature pirates to battle, anomalies to explore, aliens to befriend, battle wreckage to scavenge, asteroids to mine, artifacts to discover and everything else you would expect from a good swashbuckling space opera. Your path is in your own hands, so you can choose to be a power-hungry privateer, roguish do-gooder or crafty space-trader. The credits you earn provides access to larger and more powerful craft which can also be outfitted with a nice selection of weapons and defenses.

Although you are in control of an enormous destroyer, Rebel Galaxy is not a strategy game and wants you to experience the action up close and personal. You’ll be able to control individual turrets on your ship instead of simply sitting back and issuing orders. You won’t have to get your hands dirty if you don’t want to though. Mercenaries, custom AI stances and some diplomacy can also get you out of a scrap.

Rebel Galaxy is scheduled for release on Steam and PS4 in 2014, so keep an eye on the official site for more information. In the meantime you can feast your eyes on the screenshots and announcement trailer below.

As the protagonist of The Old City: Leviathan kept addressing his claustrophobic surroundings as if it was a living entity I was convinced that he was mad. Not that I could blame him really. Described as a “sewer dwelling isolationist” who is making his way through the bleak environments of a decaying city, it is hard not to feel sorry for the nameless protagonist. You might view the world through his eyes and direct his movement, but you are certainly not playing “as” him. I was intrigued by his musings, but certain that he was mad, until the city answered.

For anyone savvy enough to roll their eyes at the “hacking” in Hollywood movies, but lacking in the time or inclination to master the art themselves, Team Fractal Alligator might have the solution. Their upcoming title, Hacknet, is one of the few games based around hacking that looks like it might actually be worthy of the “Simulation” tag. The game challenges players to unravel the mystery of a deceased hacker by following the instructions in his automated emails.
