Awarded Best Indie Game at The Game Awards, Best Indie Game at the Golden Joysticks and recognized by the British Academy Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) as one of the best games from 2023, Sea of Stars is an acclaimed and heartfelt homage to retro-inspired role-playing games. As the second game from Sabotage Studio, this critically acclaimed game tells the story of two Children of the Solstice and their childhood friend who must combine the powers of the sun and moon to perform Eclipse Magic, the only force that has the power to fight off the monstrous creations of an evil alchemist known as The Fleshmancer.
