Sabotage Studio revealed the 15-minute gameplay video on Twitch (via Gematsu) of the upcoming demo for Sea of Stars that will be available for the players who has participated in the Kickstarter campaign earlier this year.
Sea of Stars is a turn-based JRPG which embraces the elements found in classic games while retaining modernized systems to appeal new players. In the full game, players can recruit up to 6 members in the party at once!
You may find the information about this game shared on Steam as follows:
Sea of Stars is a turn-based RPG inspired by the classics. It tells the story of two Children of the Solstice who will combine the powers of the sun and moon to perform Eclipse Magic, the only force capable of fending off the monstrous creations of the evil alchemist known as The Fleshmancer.
Engaging turn-based combat – Combat gameplay includes active player input during attack animations (timed hits), multi-character combo attacks, boosting, and strategic defense options to hinder enemies while they are channeling a powerful attack or spell. For a more immersive experience, there are no random encounters or transitions to separate battlefields, and no grinding. Both navigation and combat happen in the same environment.
Unshackled traversal – Swim, climb, vault, jump off or hoist up ledges as you run through the world with a navigation system based on platformer expertise that breaks free from the classic bound-to-the-grid tileset movement.
Prequel story set in The Messenger’s universe – Dozens of original characters and story arcs will take you on a captivating journey. Sometimes epic, sometimes silly, and other times emotional, Sea of Stars does its RPG duty of exploring classic themes of adventure and friendship, while also being chock-full of the unexpected twists and events you’d expect from a Sabotage production.
Full-on dynamic lighting – Our custom-made render pipeline allows the creation of a breathtaking world coming to life by pushing the limits of 2D pixel-art games.
The Sabotage treatment on the turn-based RPG genre – Every system has been deeply analyzed to create an experience that pays respect to retro classics, while reworking some elements to offer a modernized experience free of irritants and timesinks.
Sea of Stars will be available on PC and consoles in 2022 which means we still have a long way to go.
