Galactic Crew II is coming! From the makers of the original Galactic Crew for PC, it’s a a roguelike space exploration game inspired by FTL and the classic XCOM games. And if you’ve played those (or Galactic Crew I), you should know what to expect: crew managing, space exploration, battles with alien armies, and rank advancement driven by all those actions.
The finished game won’t be out for quite some time, but the chance to test it is coming up. Currently, Galactic Crew II is in Closed Alpha and only current owners of the original Galactic Crew have access. But as it approaches beta, 15,000 copies are about to be given away for free. To get one, contact Benjamin Rommel Games through their website or their Twitter page.
Different galaxies are yours to navigate at the press of a button and the warp of a jump gate. Each new planet is an opportunity to leave your stamp on the universe. Build colonies with resources mined in asteroid belts, raid nearby dungeons for loot, get your spaceship in top shape with shipyards and start new adventurous missions at the next space station. Explore an endless number of procedurally generated planets offering unique experiences in various settings from crashed spaceships to pirate hideouts, miner outposts, medieval villages, archeological dig sites, or pure horror scenarios. Colonize any number of planets by establishing fully customizable outposts. Each new room that you build adds new features like managing trade routes to space stations, mining, manufacturing, and storage solutions.
A more public beta for Galactic Crew II will be launched on Steam this May.
