Going to infinity and Beyond Galaxyland?

An all-new planet-hopping RPG adventure, Beyond Galaxyland has today been unveiled. And later in 2024 you’ll get to go to infinity and Beyond Galaxyland, as it releases on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC. 

Created by Sam Enright – a Chicago-based developer and music producer – Beyond Galaxyland has come about via the old classic sci-fi movies of yesteryear. It’s those that have been the inspiration for Enright, building out an all-new take on the beloved RPG adventures in the process. 

To infinity – and Beyond Galaxyland

It tells of a land in which moments before the cataclysmic destruction of Earth by an unknown celestial destroyer of worlds – known only as the ‘The End’ – high-schooler Doug finds himself whisked away to Galaxyland. This is an idyllic, zoo-like solar system, full of planets. As you may expect to hear though, it’s unlikely that this paradise truly is as good as it seems.

From there, Doug embarks on a galactic quest alongside his gun-toting pet guinea pig Boom Boom, a sentient robot called MartyBot, and a whole host of equally whacky companions. Their – read: your – quest? To discover the truth behind Galaxyland and somehow undo the apocalypse that has taken place.  

Narrative and story set up, in Beyond Galaxyland you’ll find yourself working your way across a variety of biomes. Pinging your way from here to there and back again, you’ll be treated to the sights and sounds of jungles, neon-lit cities, casinos and more. And you’ll traverse these places via classic platforming action, enjoying puzzle solving and turn-based combat along the way. And of course, boss battles wil be not just frequent, but epic!

Key features

  • Active turn-based combat: Engage in strategic turn-based battles against a vast range of galactic  nemeses, with time-responsive defensive gameplay to minimise damage. Each party member has  a range of unique abilities at their disposal, but for an additional tactical advantage, sneakily scan  your enemy pre-battle to discover their strengths and weaknesses. 
  • Interplanetary exploration: From the blizzard-swept planes of Arcos to the tropical jungle  ravines of Erros, the neon-buzzing cities of Neo to the arid sand dunes of Xalm, explore a cosmic  cluster of unique worlds, each with its own quests, environmental puzzles, and out-of-this-world  characters. 
  • A classic sci-fi adventure: A semi-open 2.5D adventure-RPGin a classic sci-fi fish-out-of-water  tale that pays homageto family-friendly adventure and sci-fi movies. Beyond Galaxyland’sstory  features laughter, loss, peril and friendship, all dipped in a dazzling layer of neon-tastic pixels. 
  • Epic boss battles: Encounter 25 epic bosses throughout many extraterrestrial travels, including  colossal space dragons, flesh eating flowers, and the all-knowing bionic behemoth that is the  Nexus Mind. 
  • Capture & utilise enemies: Successfully capture the many weird and wonderful creatures encountered on different worlds, each possessing exclusive abilities, and later unleash them  during the heat of battle.

The devs speak up

“I’m a huge fan of classic turn-based RPGs from the mid and late-1990s, and some of my favourites – such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VII –have provided me a galaxy’s worth of inspiration when developing Beyond Galaxyland,” said Sam Enright. “I wanted to make a game that felt uniquely cinematic, while being within a familiar genre. I hope when gamers play it they’ll appreciate how Beyond Galaxyland’s pacing will often feel closer to a movie than a videogame. Doug, Boom Boom, and MartyBot’s adventures across and beyond Galaxyland is a very personal tale to me, and I can’t  wait for people to experience their intergalactic story!” 

Darren Newnham, CEO, United Label, said, “We’re so thrilled we get to publish Sam’s passion project later this year, and share Doug and Boom Boom’s incredible tale with the world… if not the Universe. He’s created an engaging and intimate sci-fi story that goes beyond the grinding gameplay some turn-based RPGs fall foul of, while injecting classic platform puzzler gameplay along the way.” 

Coming Fall 2024

Beyond Galaxyland will launch later in 2024 – Fall, hopefully. It’s coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch.
