This action-adventure role-playing game features 3rd person ranged tactical fighting as a well-armed archaeologist adventurer. Ancient Galaxy is set on ancient sites scattered through the galaxy. Play as an archaeologist exploring newly discovered ruins from a lost civilization. Uncover mysterious ancient technologies and the conflicts that produced them. The first game episode takes place at a time when religiously motivated slavers and their army of The Faithful are posed to recapture old territories. Your home system is one of their old prizes. Using a spaceship as a home base, you will explore many sites on several worlds from underground cities, to ancient temple ruins, to robot-run junkyards, to slaver outposts. Construct an arsenal of weapons and magical crystal power-ups. Use a powerful PDA to translate languages, mine minerals, and harvest DNA from your encounters in order to make then use clones of the creatures you defeat along the way. When your character dies, your last corpse remains on the level and you can choose to play as a comparable but differently skilled clone of another race to resume the battle. Death becomes part of the storyline. Ancient Galaxy begins a series of games set in a new role-playing universe.
