Sabotage Studio brought us The Messenger back in 2018, and was quick to launch a Kickstarter for its next project, Sea of Stars. With a team that has grown from 7 to 25 strong, the game has been in the works since 2017. We were recently invited to sit in on a playthrough of a section of the game, and to have a casual chat with the studio about their latest endeavor. As before, this new project boasts detailed pixel graphics that truly bring their world alive, but what sets Sea of Stars apart from it’s predecessor the most is not the use of more colors, but the changeover of genres into the turn-based RPG realm of gaming.

Sabotage has provided an update on Sea of Stars, its upcoming RPG set in the same universe as The Messenger. The game has now been officially announced for Switch where it will launch in Holiday 2022.

Sea of Stars continues to perform well on Kickstarter, and has reached a number of stretch goals over the past few days. Aside from “Single Player+” and a bonus dungeon, other goals have also been reached for in-game cinematics in addition to New Game+ and an alternate ending. We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention that a behind-the-scenes documentary will be produced.

For fans of boxed copies, you’ll be happy to hear that Sabotage has teamed up with Limited Run Games to offer an early backer exclusive physical edition. It will feature a unique alternate cover by artist Bryce Kho, and this edition will only be available to backers.
