Welcome to Valiant Galaxy Associates. We hope you will enjoy your visit to our site.
We are the creators of games set in the Valiant Galaxy, our flagship science fiction setting that ranges from the present to more than a thousand years in the future. Our games are self-voicing audio games with high quality sounds and various interfaces.
We currently have three games in this setting. Interceptor is a turn-based strategy game in which you take control of a space fighter destroying waves of gray fighters attacking your mother ship. The second, which is free, Traders of Known Space allows the player to become a merchant during the Second Interstellar Wars, trading, defending yourself from grays and pirates, and attempting to make a profit. The third, Expanding Known Space, makes you the admiral of a human fleet trying to defeat a rival alliance during the First Interstellar Wars.
Future games will be set within this same universe, and will use the same types of technology, aliens, and game statistics. Future games will explore strategic gaming with you as admiral of a star fleet, survival after a crash landing, exploration, and other themes.
For those who do not enjoy science fiction, we also offer mini-games that explore other time periods of the past and genres of game. Currently our only offering in this series is Yellowbonnet, a western minigame. It is 1885, and you have arrived in Yellowbonnet to make a name in the west; unfortunately, you are almost out of money, and must first perform jobs for townspeople in order to settle down.
Besides audio games, we hope to release high quality applications for the market mostly aimed at blind or visually impaired customers. We appreciate your visit, and hope you will return to the Valiant Galaxy.
Announcing Release of Expanding known Space Update
September 21, 2019
The much discussed update to Expanding known Space is finally here. This update adds the ability to make your own speech packs or use ones hosted by our web site, the ability to invert the Y axis of the map, three new missions, and other goodies. For a full list of changes please see the change log by clicking view change log when you open the game. Unfortunately, due to adding new statistic tracking in the end game process, you can no longer use previously saved games with version 28. We apologize for any frustration this causes. We hope the galaxy is a funner place to conquer now. Also, although this is something that is still in the hush hush planning stages, interstellar Union spies have uncovered plans to attempt the development of online play between human admirals. However, that will have to wait for the next update.
