Rebel Galaxy is a space Western-styled space trading and combat simulation single-player video game developed and published by (at the time) two-person studio Double Damage Games.[1][2] It was released on Steam and for Microsoft Windows and OS X on October 20, 2015.[3] Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions were released in January 2016.[4][5][6]

A prequel of the game, called Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, was released on 13th August 2019 on the Epic Games Store.


The game features space combat in capital ships in a randomly generated universe.[1] While non-player fighter craft and gunships are capable of three-dimensional maneuvering, the player and other capital ships are restricted to a two-dimensional plane of movement with combat focusing on using broadsides to attack and defeat enemy ships.[7][8] Similar to earlier space flight simulator games such as Freelancer, players are free to pursue various activities, such as pirating, trading, or bounty hunting, in addition to completing story missions to advance the plot.[7]


Rebel Galaxy uses licensed blues rock and country rock tracks from artists including Blues Saraceno, Nick Nolan, The Blue News, and Abbas Premjee.[9]
