Sea of Stars Brings Turn-Based RPG to The Messenger
Sea of Stars was recently announced as a turn-based RPG prequel to indie studio Sabotage’s hit The Messenger. Gamers will take control of two characters and combine the powers of Sun and Moon to use Eclipse Magic and destroy abominations created by an evil alchemist called The Fleshmancer. In total, there are six playable party members who each have their own combat style and personalities like the best RPG’s out there. The game is currently on Kickstarter to obtain funding for development and gamers can pledge to the Kickstarter here. The game is expected to release for PC and consoles by 2022.
Sea of Stars gamers will have to counter attacks from their enemies because of the dynamic combat, with anticipation being key to winning a battle. Like most RPG’s, a key focus for this game is the story that focuses on the backstories of the six playable characters and the troubled world they inhabit. Fans of The Messenger will see Sea of Stars as a supplemental journey, while other gamers will be able to enjoy it as a standalone experience.
There’s no level grind in Sea of Stars so nobody will feel like they hit a brick wall of experience once they hit a certain point of the game. The day/night cycle is apparently important to the upcoming prequel to The Messenger and the game will be “pushing the traditional visual limits of classically-styled 2D pixel-art games; the only way to properly tell the story of heroes conjuring the powers of the Sun and the Moon.”
The Kickstarter has less than a month left to gain the funding they’re looking for and they’ve exceeded their goal, with 5,908 people having already pledged $275,443 to ensure that The Messenger prequel gets made.
