The title’s plot centers on the protagonist Keith T. Maxwell’s bold and daring adventures in a war-torn galaxy governed by four different factions, namely the Terrans, the Vossk, the Nivelians and the Midorians. Due to a malfunction of his hyper drive, Keith T. Maxwell is catapulted through space and time.
35 years later, he awakens at the far end of the galaxy, where he soon realizes that quite a lot has changed during his unintentional absence.
An aggressive and particularly devious alien menace known as Voids threatens the fragile peace between the different alien races by launching devastating raids on freighters and convoys of all factions. And Keith T. Maxwell is the only one who can stand up to this seemingly invincible enemy and save the universe from its impending descent into chaos. Besides a variety of story-based tasks and missions, the player can also take on an infinite number of freelance missions at any time or try his luck as a collector of achievements. All in all, there is a total of 36 bronze, silver and gold achievements available, all of which can be checked out after the obligatory Steam activation of the boxed version.
”The PC release of Galaxy on Fire 2 Full HD is particularly special for us,” says Michael Schade, CEO of Fishlabs Entertainment, “because we’ve all grown up playing the timeless sci-fi classics for countless hours on our PCs. Hence it feels just great to know that our flagship title will soon also be available on that platform, after it has already successfully set foot on iOS and Android in the past. With bitComposer we’ve found a very competent and experienced partner for our adventurous journey into PC territory and we hope that the PC gamers are already burning to take over the role of the hot-headed space war hero Keith T. Maxwell and set the galaxy ablaze with their keyboard, mouse or gamepad!”
