Galaxy On Fire 2 Full HD | Space Shooter from Fishlabs

Galaxy on Fire 2 Full HD is a space shooter and space trading game for Mac, iOS and Android devices. It was developed by Fishlabs, a German 8-year in existence mobile game developer. Fishlabs has received considerable praise from the press for their Galaxy on Fire series which Fishlabs claims more than 20 million mobile devices installments for. Fishlabs is now going to bet in the Windows PC market for the first time in their history.

The game plays around the character Keith T. Maxwell, a space adventurer and mercenary that undertakes time travel to awaken at the far end of the known galaxy due to a malfunction on his ship’s hyperdrive. There he makes contact with a mysterious and ruthless alien species. The game is about getting the main character home through an extensive number of story-bound and freelance missions.

You can choose between story-driven, mission-based or sandbox gameplay. The game is quite high-paced, as you can see by the trailer below. There seems to be RPG elements and the visuals are quite impressive. To the German guys, there will be a German language/voice over edition available. Fishlabs stated that the game will cost $19.99 / €14.99 / £13.99 and will be available as both boxed retail version and on Steam.

This could be a good title to look for this end August 2012 in case you’re fond of sci-fi shooters, especially adventure and trading ones, and you don’t have a mobile device.

      Strange, it was up minutes ago. Switched to a similar video. It’s Galaxy on Fire 2 Full HD for Mac, should be similar I guess. Thanks for letting me know Carlos.

  2. Kyle Rees says:

    This is interesting, I wonder if the price point will be similar to mobile? =P Otherwise there needs to be significant content added.

    • Adam Solo says:

      I guess the difference from HD (iOS, Android) to full HD (Mac and now Windows) is basically graphics-wise, however I’m not completely sure. Fishlabs says this about Full HD:

      “[Galaxy on Fire 2 Full HD is] optimized to take advantage of the full rendering power of current generation personal computers, Galaxy on Fire 2™ Full HD features completely overhauled graphics and visuals including elaborate 3D models, vastly improved texture sets, highly enhanced special effects and stunning OpenGL shaders in state-of-the-art quality. To make the console-styled gaming experience perfect, the game also supports fully configurable controls via keyboard, mouse and joystick. There’s no doubt about it: Galaxy on Fire 2™ Full HD is by far the most beautiful GOF we’ve made to date!” ~Fishlabs

      The Mac version costs $19.99.

      In fact, I’ve re-checked Fishlabs’ website and found out that the PC version will cost $19.99/€14.99/£13.99.

      The game will be available as both boxed retail version and on Steam.

    Wow, they annonced the PC version last year and promised it would be ready in 1st quarter 2012. Once in a while i checked their page to see that there has not been any progress. As long as the game is DRM-free in the retail version, i will buy it :)

    • Adam Solo says:

      They talk about a retail boxed version but I guess it will not be DRM-free? Steam is mentioned. But, then they say “Optionally, you will also be able to set the galaxy ablaze via EA’s Origin”. Another DRM service right? So, maybe the game is not Steam “locked” after all.

      • Evil Azrael says:

        I will see. I order almost of my games from Amazon and they are very accommodating on take backs. German law is also very convenient, i can return everything free of charge if i don’t agree to the license terms or if it is bound to some external service or membership, especially when it was not explicitly expressed in the shop’s article description.
        Currently both “Endless Space” and “Galaxy on Fire 2” lack any Steam or other DRM information on Amazon.
        And i hope that Amazon will put pressure on the publisher if they have an increased number of returns.

    This game isn’t listed on Steam. If they will be selling it, Steam isn’t telling anyone.

    Updated with the PC trailer now. Strange, the PC trailer was available at the time I posted but for some reason they scrapped it. It’s been re-uploaded now.
