Following an ad on one of my news feeds, I cam across this gem on Kickstarter [Sea of Stars]. As a fan of the classic, Chrono Trigger, this looks incredible. They’ve really nailed that 90s turn-based RPG feel but seem to have made some clever improvements.
Sea of Stars is a turn-based RPG inspired by the classics. A prequel story set in The Messenger’s universe, 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.
Promising the Sabotage touch in every system, Sea of Stars aims to modernize the classic RPG in terms of turn-based combat, storytelling, exploration and interactions with the environment, while still offering a hearty slice of nostalgia and good old, simple fun.
Coming to PC and Consoles in 2022.
It’s already backed - with all the stretch goals met, but there’s a few more days left if anyone wants to get in on the pledge action. Otherwise we can eagerly await the final release.
