Zeboyd's Cosmic Star Heroine finally blasts off

Finally!

Cosmic Star Heroine [official site], the new retro-styled RPG from Cthulhu Saves the World developers Zeboyd Games, has finally arrived. Citing Chrono Trigger and Phantasy Star as RPG inspirations, Cosmic Star Heroine tells the tale of a superspacespy who goes rogue to fight a conspiracy she uncovers. Zeboyd's games are good stuff, so this it's grand to see this out, even if it is a few years later than planned during its 2013 Kickstarter. Here, check out the launch trailer:

That's Alyssa L'Salle, a top agent of the Agency of Peace & Intelligence who uncovers terrible truths. Burned by the Agency, she jaunts across the galaxy recruiting a party to fight back, duffing up so many monsties in turn-based combat.

Zeboyd's retro RPGs always have a polish and consistency which makes them stand out, makes them quite look like forgotten 16-bit games magically uncovered in the modern day. But nope, it's mostly the long, hard work of two chaps (drafting help from HyperDuck to pump the soundtrack too). The duo had once planned to release Cosmic Star Heroine in 2014 but sheesh, look at what they have done.

A 20% launch-week discount brings Cosmic Star Heroine down to £8.49/11,99€/$11.99 on Steam. It's only on Windows right now, with Mac and Linux versions to follow.
