Cosmic Star Heroine
Zeboyd Games is the team of developers behind the popular Japanese-inspired-RPG (JiRPG) Cthulhu Saves The World and Penny Arcade’s Precipice of Darkness 3 and 4. They wanted to make a much bigger and ambitious RPG, so they took Cosmic Star Heroine to Kickstarter in 2013, and the campaign successful met their base goal as well as extra funding to bring the game to PlayStation 4! After almost four years, the team finally released their incredible game on the PS4. Before reading our Cosmic Star Heroine review, do yourself a favor and check our interview with them!
Cosmic Star Heroine is now out on PlayStation 4. Since we’re working on a review for the game, we got in touch with Zeboyd Games to talk about the game’s development for the PS4.
PS4Blog: Hi! Good afternoon. Thanks for joining us at PS4blog.net. Could you please get us going by introducing yourself to our readers and telling them a bit about yourself and your work?
I’m Bill Stiernberg, one half of the team at Zeboyd Games. We develop Japanese-style RPGs with our own unique modern twist on top of a classic/retro presentation. Our best-known games are Cthulhu Saves the World, as well as the third and fourth Penny Arcade RPGs. Our biggest project yet just release: Cosmic Star Heroine, a sci-fi espionage RPG inspired by games like Phantasy Star and Chrono Trigger.
Sony has announced six games that will be part of the Play Collective. All six games will be available with a 20% discount for PS+ subscribers if you pre-order them!
After a very successfull Kickstarter campaign and a long wait after the dev has taken the time needed to polish this game, we are happy to report that Cosmic Star Heroine will finally be releasing THIS summer!
Zeboyd Games has partnered with Limited Run Games to produce, well, a limited run physical release for their “funded with Kickstarter” RPG Cosmic Star Heroine. This physical release will be available for both the PS4 and the PS Vita versions for the game, and each one will cost $25. Click after the break for more information.
