In an earlier tweet by developers of Zeboyd Games, responsible for games such as Cthulu Saves The World and Breath of Death VII, they announced the launch of the site for their latest game: Cosmic Star Heroine.
The website features a number of things, such as a collection of screenshots, a description of the battle system, the story, and all of the playable characters with short descriptions, and a link to the soundtrack on SoundCloud. The soundtrack is done by HyperDuck SoundWorks, the same composers responsible for the music of Dust: An Elysian Tail. The developers have boasted around a 20-hour adventure, and a real-time RPG system where enemies are on the field and can be avoided too, similar to that of Chrono Trigger.
Unlike other combat systems however, ailments are a thing that can happen to bosses as well, and there will be no MP for moves, leaving players to defend in order to reuse attacks. Even style will be a factor in fights, eventually allowing for the use of more powerful techniques in exchange for style. Even the characters appear to vary, ranging from normal humans with special abilities like using magic to control and summon guns, to aliens with incredible strength, to even androids. The total number of party members revealed so far comes to 11.
Recently, the developers have launched the beta for Cosmic Star Heroine, leaving a release date unknown currently. Reception has been positive thus far, as seen from their latest Kickstarter update. The game is still set to release on PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC.
