Galaxy is a sci-fi game that was made in 2015 by rcouret. It was inspired by a game called EVE Online.
It involves mining, fighting and trading with different spaceships. You have to mine to get money, which is called credits in-game. When you get credits, you can use them to buy materials, which can be used to either build a ship or, if you have a freighter, you can use them to trade with other factions in-game. You can also get combat ships to fight other players and siege bases.
There are many different ship classes in the game. Each ship has a different layout of turrets and there is no strongest ship. The game was a hit with almost 3,000 players at the time. Over time the numbers dropped to where it is now, an average of 100 or so players at a time.
There have been many stages in Galaxy, but the major ones were Pre-Alpha, Alpha, Beta and after Beta. In late 2016 Galaxy was one of the three games to get sponsored by Star Wars Rogue One, leading up to over 10,000 players on it at the time. If you played during Pre-Alpha and Alpha you were given the Alpha badge. If you played during Beta you got the Beta badge. Even though it doesn't say Galaxy is in Beta, when a new player joins they get the Beta Badge and some epic music plays along with it.
Galaxy recently had a massive update including some new ships and other changes along with the Big Update logo.
