She's got it where it counts, kid: First screenshots of Galaxy Trucker12 Mar 2013 0
The lads over at 164 have got their hands on the first screenshots of Galaxy Trucker, the iOS edition of the eponymous board game that's due out this this summer, apparently. Galaxy Trucker is a design by Vlaada Chvátil, the Czech game designer who recently pulled the plug on Codito's troubled development of Through The Ages.
The board game version of Galaxy Trucker has players cobbling together rickety spaceships out of random parts and then hoping that their rust buckets stay intact long enough to complete their missions. From the images that 164 got, it appears that Chvátil has instructed his developers to take a fairly literal approach to interpreting the board game -- which may give us a clue as to what we should expect from Through The Ages if that title ever sees the digital light of day.
Cast your eyes up and to the right to see one of the screenshots -- head over to Board Game Geek to take in the other.
