'Galactic Glitch' Comes To Steam Early Access In July - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on June 19, 2024 @ 1:26 a.m. PDT

Galactic Glitch is an action-roguelike with deep and intense physics-driven, souls-lite combat.

Galactic Glitch is an action/roguelike space shooter, heavily inspired by games like Dead Cells and Enter the Gungeon, that lets you master deep, physics-based combat and your ship’s shape-shifting ability to demolish multi-part enemies piece by piece in tough-but-fair, souls-inspired combat.

In Galactic Glitchyou play an AI on the run, who is fighting not just for its own freedom but also for the existence of the entire universe. Control a shape-shifting starship built by a mysterious being that (mis)directs you on your journey, and find a way out of the simulated world you find yourself in.

Explore, loot and fight your way to freedom through unknown space. Upgrade your ship with new weapons and powers, analyze your enemies and their patterns, hone your skills, and destroy anyone that stands in your way.

After 10 years in the making, German indie developer Crunchy Leaf Games is excited to announce that Galactic Glitch will be available through Steam Early Access on July 15, 2024 at 12.99 EUR | USD, with a 25% launch discount during the first week.

The Early Access version has​:

  • 7 out of 10 planned levels
  • more than 50 powers
  • over 20 weapons
  • 2 bosses
  • more than 60 unique enemies​

The game is already fully playable from start to finish. After beating the game on regular difficulty, there are also NG+ modes for players that are looking for a challenge.”

“We want players to have fun experimenting with builds and finding their favorite playstyles. To do that, we need tons of powers that are balanced and interesting, and we will need to fine tune and iterate the game mechanics, to be determined as we receive feedback from the community during Early Access. We plan for the final version to have more bosses, more levels, and more secrets to find.”

"Galactic Glitch has been a labor of love for over 10 years, starting with our passion for Flash games like Bubble Tanks. The moment we added physics in 2014, everything clicked. Then, playing Dead Cells in 2017 showed us exactly how we wanted our game to feel—an ultra-fluid, physics-driven space roguelike. So in 2020, as Covid hit, we restarted development in earnest and now, 4 years later, our dream game is finally ready for its Early Access release. We look forward to hearing what players think, and improving and expanding the game based on their feedback!" - Max Dohme, lead developer at Crunchy Leaf Games
