Galcon - 1.1.3

Galcon is an awesome high paced galactic action-strategy game. You send swarms of ships from planet to planet to take over the galaxy.

Phil Hassey

Galcon was originally created for the April 2006 Ludum Dare competition. It won the contest with first places in four categories and second place in the fifth.

The game was developed over the six months after the LD competition. It now includes 7 different computer opponents, network play, much improved graphics, etc.

Galcon uses pygame, pgu, and pyplus to create some swig extensions for the graphically intense parts of the game.


- Due to popular demand, I've changed the way teams are represented in game from coloring all the planets one color, to coloring the aura (atmosphere) of the planets the color of the team. This makes it much easier to follow the action in team games.
- I've added the /banlist and /adminlist commands as well as updated the /admin, /ban commands to work even when the user isn't signed onto the server. This should be handy for admins.
- Added F4 to take a screen shot! By default it saves the image to your desktop, but you can change that in the options.
