Sabotage Studios introduced Sea of Stars at the moment, a brand new role-playing sport impressed by the 16-bit period.

This is similar studio behind the wonderful 2018 action-sidescroller The Messenger (it was one in every of my favourite video games that yr). In reality, Sea of Stars takes place in the identical universe, its story serving as a prequel.

Sea of Stars is popping to Kickstarter for crowdfunding, with a aim of $90,760. It is aiming for a launch on consoles and PC in 2022.

Looking on the sport within the trailer above, you’ll be able to see inspiration from a number of the largest Japanese RPGs of the ’90s, together with Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG. And these influences are coupled with some lovely pixel artwork.

While motion RPGs and 2D sidescrollers usually encourage retro indie video games, it’s nonetheless a bit extra uncommon to see these studios deal with the turn-based RPG market, though you do see it in video games like Undertale and Indivisible.
