NOTE: We have since published our review of Galaxy on Fire 2 Full HD. You can read it here.
We’ve heard a lot about FISHLABS’ upcoming space RPG. Namely the incredible graphics, in-depth role playing mechanics, a lengthy story and lots and lots of content. In all, it took 5 man-years of extra development time to bring this to the Mac. There’s no wonder we’re excited to finally announce that the game has made it onto the store.
FISHLABS have also published a trailer on YouTube. Check it out:
