What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Handelabra Games has released games in Early Access for several titles in the past. The feedback we can get from players through the process is invaluable, especially in the realms of user interface and user experience. This feedback makes our games the best they can be upon release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is our goal for One Deck Galaxy to be in early access for roughly 6 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full release version of One Deck Galaxy is currently planned to have more polished features and UI, completed and mastered music and more:
  • Card library screen
  • Steam achievements
  • 2P support on screens with narrow aspect ratio (less than 1.7)

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version has much of the content from the tabletop game:
  • 5 Adversaries (Neeble-Woober Colony Fleet, The Hungry Nebula, The Optimization Calibrator, Dark Star Syndicate, and The Preservation Authority)
  • All 5 Homeworlds and 5 Societies
  • All of the Galaxy Deck and Starbases
  • Campaign Mode
  • It is fully playable solo and pass & play with 1 or 2 players. You can play online using Steam Remote Play Together.
  • A fully interactive Tutorial and a digital rulebook are included.
    Note: 2P is currently supported on screens with wide aspect ratio (1.7 or wider)

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of One Deck Galaxy is not planned to change after retail release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The game includes a Help & Feedback button for you to send us feedback directly from within the game. We're happy to take bug reports and feature requests alike. We also encourage players to discuss the game on the Steam Community forum and our Discord server.”

About This Game

One Deck Galaxy is the spacefaring successor to the hit roguelike One Deck Dungeon from Asmadi Games and Handelabra Games.

Roll your dice and cleverly use them to build up your civilization from its humble homeworld, growing to create a Federation spanning the countless star systems of Insula, a distant corner of our galaxy.

Each time, build a new civilization (or two) by combining a Homeworld and Society. Each Homeworld has a unique ability, starting tech, and milestone. Each Society has a unique ability, 3 milestones, and a unique tech that powers up the more milestones you achieve.

  • 5 Homeworlds: Elemens, Felisi, Plumplim, Timtillawinks, and Zibzab
  • 5 Societies: Botanists, Explorers, Guardians, Mathematicians, and Scientists

You’ll need to:
  • Establish colonies to gain more resources and most importantly: more dice!
  • Develop techs that grant you powerful new abilities.
  • Study locations and launch probes to further your scientific research.
  • Build fleets to extend your influence throughout the galaxy.
  • Achieve milestones that signify the growth of your civilization.

All of these goals are accomplished by effectively managing and using your dice, focusing your efforts on what you deem most important. All of your dice will be useful in some way, regardless of the roll, so One Deck Galaxy is a game more of strategy than luck!

Standing between you and your cosmic destiny each game is one of several Adversaries (3 Adversaries available in Early Access):

  • Neeble-Woober Colony Fleet - Sentient cephalopods with a simple belief: They're the best!
  • The Hungry Nebula - A mysterious space phenomenon that seems to swallow everything in its path.
  • The Optimization Calibrator - An Interstellar Social Media Entity that knows you, what you want to do, and what you should do.
  • Dark Star Syndicate - A mysterious, scientific organization that wishes to dark all the stars.
  • Currently in Development: Preservation Authority

You’ll have to split your efforts between growing your own strength and confronting them directly. Every Adversary has its own set of rules and abilities, and you’ll need to come up with different plans and tactics to defeat each one!

With hundreds of possible setups, One Deck Galaxy is a different experience every time you play!

One Deck Galaxy is an officially licensed product of “One Deck Galaxy” from Asmadi Games.
