‘Winning is the only way to survive’
Galaxy Games is a 2021 American science fiction film about young adults stranded on a hostile alien planet with no hope of getting home. Also known as Sol Invictus

Written, produced and directed by Ben Carland (Survive; Shadows on the Wall; shorts: Leap of Faith; Luma; Possession; The Forgotten Future).

The Pixel Pictures-The Obsidian Collective production stars Jake White, Jake Brown, Caleb Courtney, Sky King, Aaron Kuban, Spenser Pollard and Tyler Thomas.

Each year, contestants are sent to a different planet to compete in the Sol Invictus games for the chance to win fame and glory. Winning is the only rule.


When things don’t go as planned, and the teams are marooned on the wrong planet with none of their equipment and no way to call for help, the remaining survivors, an unlikely group of once-adversaries, must band together and hope they can survive long enough to win the games and make it home…


“All of their clothes, tents, etc look like they came off the shelf at the local Walmart and there’s no attempt to make the North Carolina oceanfront locations look alien […] But worst of all, Galaxy Games is just plain dull. The characters are annoying rather than sympathetic or even interesting…” 1.5 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
