Anarchic FTL-esque board game Galaxy Trucker – a board game I’ve at all times wished to attempt – is headed to PC on March seventh. Czech Games Edition introduced the game to Android and iThings some time again, however for these of us who do their social gaming at their desktop, this upcoming model is a pleasing shock. It’s a quickfire game of improvised ship-building, profiteering and catastrophe, and features a bundle of single-player challenges and bots to play with when you’ve not acquired anybody to group up with. See the trailer for the desktop model under.
Galaxy Trucker isn’t a wildly complicated game, nevertheless it has a number of fun-looking programs that may trigger a semi-united crew to butt heads. For starters, ships are in-built real-time with a ticking timer, even within the board game model. Players seize random ship elements from a shared pool after which resolve whether or not they’re going to make use of that piece – assembled in vaguely Pipe Dream vogue – or return it to the pile, performed face-up. Whoever grabs an undesirable piece first will get to maintain it.
I may go on to clarify it additional, however as an alternative I’ll simply let Matt Lees of RPS tabletop friend-site Shut Up & Sit Down explain it all for you here. Paradoxically sufficient, whereas the bodily Galaxy Trucker is a real-time game by nature, the digital model presents a turn-based mode and asynchronous play-by-email model multiplayer, in addition to a number of single-player stuff to do. The cell variations of the game all assist cross-platform play, so it appears doubtless the PC can be becoming a member of that massive completely satisfied household of space-disaster quickly, too.
The PC model of Galaxy Trucker arrives on Steam on March seventh, and can value $10/€10. The cell model is obtainable on Google Play and the App Store for half the value, however with the Alien Technologies DLC (included with PC) offered individually.
