GALAK-Z trailer looks all kinds of crazy


4:30 PM on 08.11.2013



I'll admit I'm a sucker for a good old classic shooter. To me, there's nothing more cathartic than unleashing a barrage of missiles or a screen filling laser onto an unsuspecting swarm of enemy fighters. Radiant Silvergun, Gradius, and the Don Don Pachi series are just a few of my favorites, but I may just have to make room for GALAK-Z if this announcement trailer is any indication of what's to come. 

From 17-bit Studios, the minds behind Skulls of the Shogun, this 16-bit inspired sci-fi shooter looks pretty promising. Touted as an AI and Newtonian physics driven, open-world, space shoot em' up (damn that sounds pretty awesome!) GALAK-Z is making its mark first on the PS4 sometime in 2014.

I also really dig the old-school anime vibe running through the trailer with the pilot avatar in the corner and Gundam-esque enemy robots complete with energy swords!

Looks like Sony has another indie win on its hands.

Galak-Z is like Spelunky by way of Macross

Galak-Z has gone through some changes since we first heard about it. The space shooter from 17-bit Studios (Skulls of the Shogun) has jumped on the roguelike train. I mean space train. Damn. I messed that up.  I messed u...more

Space shooter Galak-Z also coming to PS Vita

If memory serves, 17-Bit was toying around with bringing its cool-looking anime-inspired shooter Galak-Z to PS Vita, in addition to confirmed platforms like PS4 and PC this year. Well, it's now official. Since I last saw the ...more

Galak-Z explores the nooks and crannies of space

"It's the perfect game for fans of 80's anime," 17-Bit's Raj Joshi told me about Galak-Z before I was given a chance to play it. Admittedly, it seemed like a weird statement at the time. At first glance, the Asteroids-esque ...more

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more

PS4, Vita getting psychological romance adventure Alone With You

 Alone With You, presumably the prequel to "Stuck in the Middle With You," comes from the man behind 2D horror Home and its spray can pastel world seems cool. You're the only remnant of a failed terraforming outfit...more
