Just when you thought November couldn't get any colder, game developer giant Adrienne Bazir and Armor Games Studios bring us a hot RPG that may make you forget about your Thanksgiving turkey. Brace yourselves gamers, the turn-based, time-loop RPG In Stars and Time is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch on November 20th, 2023. Get ready for some intense deja vu, as the game shares more than a passing resemblance to the modern classic Undertale, both visually and gameplay-wise.
"In Stars and Time" takes the oft-used concept of a time loop, ties it in a bow, and hands it over to our protagonist, Siffrin, and their ragtag group of misfit friends. Their mission? Topple an evil king quicker than you can say "Pumpkin Spice Latte" before, you guessed it, time resets. Feels like an intense game of musical chairs, doesn't it? But with a kingdom's fate hanging in the balance.
Here's the official skinny from Armor Games Studios: "Siffrin, along with their five-finger discount adventurer friends Mirabelle, Isabeau, Odile, and Bonnie, take on the daunting task to end the reign of the evil king. Victory is within grasp, but OH NO, tragedy! Like any good soap opera cliffhanger, the clock resets, and they have to do it all over again."
Trapped in a time-loop only Siffrin notices (all the makings of a great rom-com, eh?), this found family have to save their world by repeating the same two days over again and again. The objective? Correct their past errors faster than a spell-check running on a 5G network.
The time-looping RPG adventure unveils more about the world and Siffrin’s pals with each loop while challenging deadly adversaries to a titanic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. As if that wasn't enough to get your hearts racing, you can also equip your mates' memories as power-ups and ask the Change God for travelling mercies.
Now, isn't that a mouthful, or should we say, a Joy-Con full? So, what's the verdict, fellow gamers? Are you dusting off your Nintendo Switch for this one? Set your alarms for November 20th and get ready to save the world one loop at a time.
