We know there is a lot of tension out there. Our fans on toucharcade and on our Fishlabs forum have been crying out loud for more ships, weapons, missions and a new story. We are therefore very happy to come forward with information we believe will delight the fans of Galaxy of Fire 2. The very first chapter of the developer diaries on the DLC will give you an introduction to what you may expect in the plump mission pack Valkyrie – Galaxy on Fire 2released 28th April and background on how it came to life.
[full]The work on Galaxy on Fire 2 – Valkyrie is still in antzy progress. We are working on an expansion of rather huge dimensions considering the app space it is launched in. The world formerly threatened by the Voids is being reloaded. New ships, new weapons, new items, new features, new gameplay and a whole new story line might give this DLC the feel of a whole new game. The galaxy is expanded considerably and comes alive with many ideas both the fans and we ourselves wanted to see in the game after it had been released at the end of last year.
Downloadable Content for Galaxy on Fire 2 is virgin soil for Fishlabs. While the console market has already seen successful DLC’s we are actually on a venture in mobile space. We surely hope the main pack as well as the themed packages are welcomed by the community with the same enthusiasm the game has been met with thousands of 4.5 – 5 star ratings in the AppStore. With producing Valkyrie we aim at prolonging the gaming fun for those who have already completed the story line in Galaxy on Fire 2 or are still at it.
If you decide to join our ad-free venture you will find the Void were not the last threat Keith T. Maxwell has to put up with. A female lead character is making up for his troubles and at the same time causes some more. Having the cinematic qualities of the DLC in mind we were looking for a good name and did not go easy on ourselves in the process of finding it. ‘Dark Pearl’ was a CEO favorite but got voted down due to worn out pirate lingo. Yet we all agreed the name should mirror the dark tone and awe-inspiring might of the expanding galaxy. We were looking for something operatic, mysterious, with drama swinging in it, pleasing the ear when you say it having a feminine yet martial touch. Despite this rather long list of conditions our search was rewarded with a beautifully fitting title for our DLC from the realms of Nordic mythology. Valkyrie, the telling name of prominent figures in a many hundreds years old Nordic mythology.
