The Crispy Noodle reviews Galactose
New Build! And Thanks
Galactose is a space combat/tactical RTS hybrid, which pits hundreds of ships against each other in the age-old war between dinner and dessert. Your sweet, delicious homeland needs YOU to defend it against the evils of dinner. Will you heed its call?

This is still a work in progress, but we have a very playable build.

@BrianRubin - We've been really bad about posting videos, though we've changed a decent amount visually and added local multiplayer... I should probably post some new videos and images on the webpage... I do usually keep the download link at reasonably up to date

Oh wow, yay! Y'all need to update.... SOMETHING. I just did an episode of out podcast following up on games we've covered, and for all intents and purposes it looks like the game is abandoned. Couldn't find uodates newer than 2016!

@BrianRubin - we're still actively working on it!
