Sea of Stars

The developers of Sea of Stars at Sabotage Studio released another clip of their adorable pixel-art RPG. 

This time around, we get to take a look at a brief video showing the ability to swim, set in the port city of Brisk. You can simply walk into the water from the beach, and the characters will start swimming automatically.

Funnily, it appears that the people of Brisk love to hang out at the beach, as it's well-equipped with parasols, towels, and chairs. 

You can watch it below.

Sea of Stars is releasing on August 29 for PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It's a prequel set in the universe of Sabotage's Studio acclaimed game The Messenger and it has been funded with a successful Kickstarter campaign that reached its goal in a single day. 

It comes with retro-style turn-based battles that aim to renew the formula with timed attacks and defense, tactical use of damage types, and more. Of course, it also comes with absolutely beautiful pixel art visuals enriched by the dynamic lighting that you see in today's trailer. 

The story includes dozen of characters and story arcs, promising a "captivating journey," but if you want a break, you can still enjoy side activities like fishing and minigames, including the in-game tabletop game "Wheels" that you can play at taverns. 

Incidentally, it also features music by legendary JRPG composer Yasunori Mitsuda, even if he did not compose the whole soundtrack. You can read more about the score in our previous dedicated article.
