Developer 17-bit is winding down production of their roguelike top-down space shooter, Galak-Z: The Dimensional. The game is set to make its debut on PS4 first before hitting other platforms, with 17-bit aiming for a late summer/early fall release window.

Creator Jake Kazdal confirmed the release window to Polygon, adding that the game will arrive on Vita shortly thereafter. The PC version will arrive shortly after the Vita version's launch.

Galak-Z features procedurally-generated environments, with pilots taking down alien threats with high-tech weaponry and missiles. Using Spelunky as a heavy influence, 17-bit is aiming for longevity of fellow roguelike, Don't Starve.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Cool. A friend of mine did the female voice in the game.
