An hour of Rebel Galaxy Outlaw’s crime, grime and old-school space combat

Ever since its announcement last week, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw has been one of my most wanted games, dead or alive. Prequel to the grungy space-trucker sim Rebel Galaxy, Outlaw is more about fighter-scale dogfights, piracy and cockpits full of glowing lights and buttons.

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw announced and looking excitingly like Wing Commander: Privateer

While I loved its space-trucker aesthetic and grimy rock soundtrack, Double Damage's space combat and trading sandbox Rebel Galaxy never really grabbed me. Its prequel - Rebel Galaxy Outlaw - on the other hand, has my full attention.

The space scoundrel…

Wait, hang on, two founding members of Torchlight devs Runic have been working on what they call a "swashbuckling space adventure" with spaceship action and trading and exploration and antics in a procedurally-generated galaxy, and we've only posted about it once? That won't do at all! Now's a good time to catch up, as Rebel Galaxy [official site] has just received a release date: October…

Rebel Galaxy: Ex-Torchlight Folks’ Space Sandbox

A crafty crew of space-outlaws can scrape by on the edge of known space by trading, stealing, scavenging, negotiating, exploring, and fighting as long as they have a reliable spaceship, popular media tells me. Now imagine such an outfit of scamps in control of a destroyer bristling with guns. That's Rebel Galaxy, the first game from Travis Baldree and Erich Schaefer's new outfit Double Damage…
