Sea of Stars Pushed to 2023

Developer Sabotage Studio announced that it has pushed back the planned release of retro-inspired turn-based RPG Sea of Stars. Previously planned to release later this year, the game will now launch for PC, Nintendo Switch, and additional unannounced platforms some time in 2023.

Sea of Stars is a prequel to Sabotage Studio’s previous title, action side-scroller The Messenger. The game follows two Children of the Solstice: a Lunar Monk and a Solar Blade Dancer. It features turn-based combat and a freely traversible world letting players swim, climb, vault, and more. It also includes musical contributions from composer Yasunori Mitsuda.


As we are closing in on a very big milestone the road to launch becomes clearer, and we find ourselves here with a large body of text and our logos at the bottom. Keeping in mind our two main priorities -- quality of life for our team and quality of the finished game -- we can now confirm that Sea of Stars will be released in 2023. We understand waiting is a big ask, and want to sincerely thank our community for the overwhelming support and positive vibes. In the meantime, we are looking at options to get a playable slice out to everyone this year. All the love, Saboteam.

  1. Is this actually a prequel or does it just take place in the same universe?
