Galak-Z will set course for mobile devices in 2016

17-Bit's space roguelike will go beyond its original PlayStation 4 horizons, as the developer is now working on a mobile port for next year.


It's been a fine summer for 17-Bit Studios, as the developer released its long-awaited space roguelike, Galak-Z: The Dimensional on PlayStation 4 earlier in August. And while it's been known that the Sony console would not be the game's only destination, publisher GungHo Online Entertainment has announced that it will also find a home on mobile devices in 2016 under the title, Galak-Z: Variant Mobile.

For those unfamiliar with Galak-Z, the game sees Adam "A-Tak" Takamoto fly across hostile alien territory, engaging in various missions over the course of five seasons. There are plenty of resources and upgrades to collect, but like in all good roguelike, players only have a single life to live.

Galak-Z will be updated to run on touch screen controls, as well as receive an overhauled user interface. More details are expected in the coming months. Galak-Z is also set to come to PC in the near future, but the planned Vita version was recently cancelled.

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?
