The two-man indie game studio Nanopike is proud to reveal that Galaxy Highways is coming out on Steam in May 2024. The exact release date will be announced sometime later. A free demo version is already available on the platform for everyone to try out. To build up the hype, take a look at the official gameplay trailer below.

Galaxy Highways is a pixel art top-down bullet hell space shooter. The story takes place in a distant future, where humanity’s expansion has discovered mysterious jump gates created by an unknown civilization. Unfortunately, this discovery has led to encounters with alien forces, destroying Earth. The last remnants of humanity are forced to retreat to the edge of the galaxy.

You will step inside the shoes of one of the few skilled pilots in the Last Hope colony. Now it is up to you and your special forces to protect the colony against the aliens that threaten the existence of humanity. Take down the alien threat, steal their resources, and research new technologies for a higher chance of victory. Fight your way through the enemies, all the while completing critical objectives and sabotaging their attempts to discover the colony.

The game features a variety of unique ships, each with their strengths and weaknesses. Pilot each one of them explore the galaxy and freshly engage in fast-paced combat every time. Go next level by pursuing optional objectives. You can even boost your ship’s weapons and defenses after every successful mission. This includes lasers, rockets, mines, defensive turrets, and more.

Not only that you can even build your docks and battleship. Unlock various structures, all the while slowly powering up your battleship to become a special level one. So, are you ready to save the colony from the aliens?
