- 17-Bit Senior Producer Raj Joshi
announced today that Galak-Z is coming to PlayStation Vita with details below.
To quote: We here at 17-BIT are ecstatic to announce we'll be bringing the same seat-of-your-pants space shooting gameplay of Galak-Z to PS Vita. Since each game of Galak-Z is a unique, randomly-generated adventure, you'll be able to dive deep into a fresh experience anytime you have a free moment, no matter where you are.
Counting From One to Infinity
As we designed Galak-Z, we realized a funny thing - we kept building onto one main level rather than adding new levels.
Typically, we'd be building new levels left and right to express new gameplay concepts, but with Galak-Z, we were focused on how each new enemy, trap, plant, and weapon fit into the mix. So we kept mushing them together in one big level. It was glorious, and it was known as "the cave."
Why did the same environment stay fun for so long? What really matters in Galak-Z is the interactions between all the moving parts. Combat with intelligent squads, getting attacked by a hostile environment, weighing the risks of a deadly magma pool versus the sheer style of knocking some hapless enemy into it... As long as we kept switching it around, it kept being interesting.
