GALAK-Z  



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 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

Volume is a more thoughtful approach to Metal Gear Solid VR Mission-like stealth

Volume is a fitting name for a polygonal, Metal Gear Solid VR Missions-looking stealth game with enough rectangles to feed a geometry class for the entire year. In the case of Mike Bithell's Thomas Was Alone follow-up, howeve...more

GDC 15 DLC #2: Oily hamburgers and Cranberries
