What is Rebel Galaxy about?

Rebel Galaxy offers an open world that you can explore freely with your spaceship. You cannot land on planets, but there is enough to do in a vacuum. You manage missions for clients and collect resources through mining. Artefacts and wrecks to loot also await daring explorers in a vacuum. In addition, you trade with all kinds of alien races and make improvements for your spaceship.

In the fight against pirates, you also need the extra firepower. The action scenes are atmospherically set in scenes with pretty light effects. A certain pirate feeling is created by the combat system, which is reminiscent of seafaring. This is how you fire powerful broadsides from your space cruisers.
