Galaxy 55
5 | ♥ 12

Galaxy 55 was some kind of Minecraft-ish exploration game where you could fly through space in your customizable ship and land on mysterious (procedural) planets to gather resources.

It featured a quite funny crafting system: you could stack cubes in the game world, just like recipe patterns in Minecraft, but in 3D. The world was also rendered as a fake sphere, giving landscapes a nice “walking on a small moon” feeling.

This game was canceled during its beta phase. By the time it was designed, the Minecraft adventure mode was still not released and it felt there was still room for something fresh in this crowded place. But as Mojang finally pushed its mode live, it was clear that the main added value of our game was not relevant anymore, and we didn’t want to just make another Minecraft clone.

      Hi! Unfortunately, the game is Motion Twin property and I can't distribute the source code for now. I look forward to them releasing it.

    This game was so nice I felt that was super cool 7 years ago, it had a lot of potential. No man's sky was released some years later and remind me this game. I even made a youtube tutorial . I used to program in Java and studied programming 7 years and I always wanted to try to do something like this just to learn by doing something diferent. I did some 2D minigames inspired about this, it makes me sad and nostalgic about this game.

    My favourite game from Motion Twin, i wish the company finished the game, or at least kept it online so players can enjoy it.
    I think it is not another Minecraft. It has a lot of innovative features. (space ship, 3D crafting, planets, trade …)
