- Phantom Galaxies will be released in Early Access on November 15, 2023.
- This highly awaited sci-fi adventure combines space exploration with exciting Mecha combats.
- We interviewed Blowfish Studios’ Co-founder, Aaron Grove, to discuss different aspects of the game.
Phantom Galaxies has remained an anticipated game over the course of its initial announcement back in 2021, with one of the reasons for that being the genre that it emphasizes—a mecha fighter with an open-world simulation setting. Popular indie game developer Blowfish Studios is the one helming the project, with a subsequent focus on Phantom Galaxies to thrive in the Web3 gaming ecosystem.
In recent times, eXputer held a Q&A email interview with Blowfish’s Creative Director Aaron Grove, going over the development of the title, its inspirations, and some of the major changes that the studio would be inclined to make to Phantom Galaxies, should the community respond with appropriate feedback. Read ahead for interesting insights into the world of the highly anticipated mecha shooter at hand.
Phantom Galaxies holds the potential to be one of the most promising titles in the history of Web3 gaming, given how the game has a full-scaled release planned for next year. It takes inspiration from notable titles like Destiny 2, Armored Core 6, and others and seems to be doing many things right. On another note, the interview with Aaron also piqued my interest in the original game that focused on one of the main characters, Goda.
Perhaps the currently shelved game will be revised on some level in the future as an expansion since the studio is open to creating a “rich multiverse.” Moreover, Phantom Galaxies’ recent collaboration with Shrapnel might also bring about some content that could be part of this multiverse, which is something else to look forward to. However, what excites me the most is the potential for a vast amount of content post-launch, which includes more planets to explore and battle in, an ever-growing story, and so much more.
