Galactic Keep is an obvious labor of love. Anyone who has followed its development probably doesn't need to be told that. Like many labors of love, it has some rough patches, no doubt about it. Taken on the whole, though, it's one of the most compelling RPGs I've played this year. Once I pushed through the awkward stuff at the start, I found myself hopelessly and happily lost in exploring all of its nooks and crannies, chasing down every little piece of flavor text, and making my squad into the best bunch of goons they could be. Even if developer Gilded Skull never adds another module to the game, there's plenty here to enjoy.
I’m still in the beginning of Galactic Keep because the combat is fairly difficult (but fun), and I’ve died a few times trying to make my way through the first map. However, I’m in love with the awesome style and music, and the game is enjoyable with the challenging gameplay and smart AI for enemies. Even though it’s a video game, it brings that tabletop RPG feeling home, and I appreciate that a lot. For games like this, skeuomorphism cannot die.
It's a deep role-playing experience in a unique sci-fi world that's packed to the gills with little moments to make the world feel that much more compelling. It can be slow and confusing at times, yes, but itsoriginality and peculiarity are precisely what makes it so interesting and fun to spend time with.
Ci sono angoli da smussare, magari i dungeon sarebbero potuti essere più densi di situazioni diverse e un approfondimento ancora maggiore sullo strano e affascinante lore costruito da Gilded Skull non avrebbe certo guastato, ma se vi piace fantasticare su mondi immaginari non dovreste veramente perdervi questa irripetibile esperienza di gioco mobile.
