Sea of Stars

Original (8/30): Sea of Stars has only just come out, yet it seems to be doing quite well for itself. Reviews for the title have been favorable, and Sabotage Studio have just announced that the game has sold 100,000 copies across all platforms within one day of its release.

Sea of Stars is an indie turn-based RPG, inspired by many older JRPG classics such as Super Mario RPG, Illusion of Gaia, and Chrono Trigger. For being a relatively small production, reaching this milestone on the first day of release is something to be celebrated, with the developers having gone online to thank fans for their support of the game.

You can check out their thank-you message below.

Sea of Stars review

System: Switch
Release date: August 29, 2023
Developer: Sabotage Studio
Publisher: Sabotage Studio

Another successful Kickstarter project, Sea of Stars was fully funded only seven hours after being live on the platform. Canadian-based developer Sabotage Studio mapped out several stretch goals only to see them continuously blown away. Now with the release of this retro-inspired turn-based RPG, a nostalgic wind blows for older gamers that remember the golden age of SNES and SEGA Genesis titles – RPGs that Sea of Stars pays homage to in myriad ways. As a prequel to their previous game, The Messenger, Sea of Stars expands upon Sabotage Studio’s ability to tell a story, and this time they’ve taken a bit more of a lofty approach. Going from an action platformer to a storied RPG is quite a change, after all.

A message from Sabotage reads:

sea of stars preview

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.
