Watch The Action-Packed Debut Trailer For Galak-Z: The Dimensional

17-Bit is trading in Skulls of the Shogun's turn-based strategy for outer-space dogfights in its top-down shooter, Galak-Z: The Dimensional. Get your first glimpse of Galak-Z's gameplay in this exclusive debut trailer.

While the trailer below features non-stop action, 17-Bit is building Galak-Z with tactical combat in mind. Enemy ships feature individual AI, allowing them to evade, use cover, and coordinate attacks with their fellow wingmen. Enemy AI is just one area in which 17-Bit is looking to evolve the classic top-down shooter into a next-gen worthy experience. This month's issue of Game Informer features an exclusive four-page look at Galak-Z, including new details about the combat, procedurally generated worlds, and our hands-on impressions of the gameplay.

Galak-Z: The Dimensional is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2014. To learn about the inspirations behind Galak-Z, check out our video interview with 17-Bit CEO Jake Kazdal.

  • I really enjoyed this trailer. This game looks great.

  • I must have this game!!!!!

    edit: am I the only person who thinks western indies do old school japanese style stuff better than the japanese?
  • It reminds me of geometry wars... Or a more open Shoot'em Up game

  • I'm surprised 17 Bit is still around. Not a knock against them, by the way - it's just that Skulls of the Shogun was so incredibly delayed... especially for an indie game. And then when it does come out, it's been marginalized by Micrsoft to be a "killer app" for their stupid Windows 8 Store and their "Live Tile" OS - built more for their Windows Phones and Surface Tablets than XBLA. I really figured that the game wouldn't find an audience, they'd run out of money, and close up shop.

    Glad to see I was wrong... and that Sony stepped in to get their next game. Sony won't force them to, say, put this on XPeria phones. They know where video games belong - on game consoles. Another nice get for Sony, the PS4 and indie self-publishing!

  • I'm really looking forward to this.  I think with the 16:9 aspect the side scrolling shmup of yore would be ripe for all kinds of updates and procedurally generated this and that, but I'll take this, too. Anything to blast stuff with spaceships.

  • It's so punny it hurts. In a good way.

  • Looks like an iOS/Android game. -__-
