Zeboyd’s Cosmic Star Heroine Blasting Off In Summer

Zeboyd Games, the folks who redeemed one of the world’s greatest monsters in Cthulhu Saves The World and revived the Penny Arcade Adventures, have announced that their next retro-styled RPG is coming this summer. Cosmic Star Heroine [official site] is an intergalactic RPG about a space-super-spy on the lam, and Zeboyd namechecked inspirations like Chrono Trigger and Phantasy Star when they Kickstarted it in 2013.

Zeboyd’s Cosmic Star Heroine Is On Kickstarter

Guardian Of The Galaxy: Zeboyd’s Cosmic Star Heroine

Zeboyd played guit-ah-arrrrrr

The story of Zeboyd is a strange one, but perhaps a slightly familiar one. Creating a bit of buzz around their Lovecraftian RPG Cthulhu Saves The World on Xbox, only to find that to be a cold and uncaring land, things were a lot rosier for the subsequent PC release. That in turn led to the opportunity to tackle a new game for the even-tempered and all-embracing fellows over on Penny Arcade, which in turn led to a sequel, and now they’re at the point where the announcement of their new game creates headlines. As well as having a most excellent title, Cosmic Star Heroine will include “turn-based RPG gameplay that takes the best elements from our past games while adding a few new ideas.”
