Sabotage, developer of The Messenger, announced its new game Sea of Stars. Sea of Stars will come as a turn-based RPG that goes before The Messenger.
The Messenger, the platform game released in 2018 with its classic 8-16 bit images, was highly appreciated. The game even received the best-released independent game award at The Game Awards that year. Developer Sabotage announces Sea of Stars, the new turn-based RPG game on events prior to The Messenger.
Sea of Stars runs hundreds of thousands of years before The Messenger. The game features two playable main characters who will fight to defeat Fleshmancer. Turn-based combat offers hits and active defense options reminiscent of mechanics in Super Mario RPG and Mario & Luigi games.
Sabotage usually makes games with a retro look and modern mechanics. The developer states that he was inspired by the classics in his new game. Sea of Stars has a dynamic lighting system, 2D pixel art and a day and night cycle that creates realistic shadows. Players are also free to explore the environment. Sea of Stars is still under development and is waiting for its supporters as a Kickstarter project. The game will be released in 2022 for PC and next-generation consoles.
