Sea of Stars is a turn-based RPG inspired by the classic, retro games we all know and love. Sabotage Studio strives for a gaming experience full of engaging combat, rich storytelling, and a dynamic world full of adventure.
This ode to retro gaming had an initial release date aiming for late 2022. However, a recent post on the official Twitter account changes those plans. According to Sabotage Studio, they now aim for a 2023 release. This wait has been extended to maintain a healthy work environment and focus on quality results.

Even more recently, Sea of Stars is officially coming to PS4 and PS5 alongside a Nintendo Switch and PC release. Along with this announcement also comes a closer look at the combat system in Sea of Stars.
There will be a total of six playable characters all with their own unique kits. The game will stay true to the phrase “turn-based” without any time constraints. This allows each player to battle at their own pace. On top of this, there will be no random encounters, as every fight will offer a thoughtful experience. Even further, Sabotage Studio explains that “timed-hits” will allow players to sync their actions with the animations in order to deal extra damage/reduce incoming damage. There is also a combo/dual attack system, “live mana” generated from attacks to absorb for an extra kick, as well as a lock system that allows players to weaken enemies by dealing damage of a certain type. Sea of Stars players will also be able to swap characters mid-battle at no cost! More details can be found on the official website!
