Rebel Galaxy Outlaw

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw Announced

Double Damage Games Announces Follow-up Prequel to Smash Indie Hit Rebel Galaxy (Seattle, WA) – August  31, 2018 – Independent developer Double Damage Games today announces Rebel Galaxy Outlaw,  blue-collar space combat adventure packed with outlaws, explosions, gleefully unrealistic spaceflight, and a hell of a soundtrack. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is a sort-of-prequel to 2015’s Rebel Galaxy, this time dropping you right into the cockpit and doubling down on the roadhouse vibe of the previous game. Watch New Cinematic Trailer here:  Rebel Galaxy Outlaw features high-octane space combat, over 20 hours of subspace radio, side activities like billiards and dice poker, plenty of sketchy characters to meet, and sketchier jobs to take on. Nobody’s saving the universe around here – they’d settle for saving a couple of credits. It’s aiming to launch Q1 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. “This has got to be the most ambitious game I’ve ever worked on,” said Travis Baldree, Co-Founder of […]
