Rebel Galaxy marks the first game from studio Double Damage Games whose co-founders originally helped form Runic Games, the makers behind the hit Torchlight. With Rebel Galaxy, they’ve traded in the ARPG genre for the open world Space sim with a game that manages to combine the best of the two genres for a game that newcomers and fans can enjoy.
Titan Quest was an underrated ARPG from developer Iron Lore which attempted to challenge Diablo 2 back in the day. But lack of sales and DRM issues caused the series and the company to go under. But members of the team got together and formed Crate Entertainment to create a spiritual successor to Titan Quest titled Grim Dawn.
After years of being worked on and funded via pre-orders, the game is now on Early Access and while it is coming along, there is still plenty of work left to do.
