A Rite From the Stars Release Date

Postby draclvr » Fri Jun 29, 2018 10:13 am

I backed this one on Kickstarter a loooong time ago and am very excited that the release date of July 19th has been announced. Got my email yesterday.

Fellow adventurers! We are announcing today that A Rite from the Stars, the clever, puzzle-filled, coming-of-age adventure game by Risin’ Goat, will launch on July 19th for PC and Mac on Steam, the Phoenix Online Store, and more. The Linux version will follow soon after.

About A Rite from the Stars
Kirm, a mute boy from the Makoa tribe, has been chosen by the Stars to undertake a mystical rite of passage to become a legend among his people. To achieve this, players can freely explore the Mystical Island of Kaikala and pursue the three paths of Wisdom, Courage, and Spirit in any order they choose. Each path offers a new style of puzzles and obstacles to overcome, from solving riddles to manipulating ancient machinery to tag-team coconut dodgeball! Not to mention Kirm’s playable meerkat companion Mirk and guiding star Hoku, who are on hand to collaborate on puzzle solutions and lend insight along the way.

Inspired by classics like Machinarium and the Legend of Zelda series, A Rite from the Stars features vibrant 3D environments and a fully orchestrated soundtrack recorded with a live chorus. It’s voiced in the Makoan, the original language developed especially for the game, with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

Wish my pc could accommodate these new games. I am loathe to spend a lot of money getting a new computer as, these days, there are so few 'adventure' games being released that I have to work out whether the expense would be worth it. This year there have been so far only about 3 games I would really like to get my hands on, but when I check my graphics card is not enough and it is not just the grapics card the whole pc needs an update. This is another one so maybe the games I like are starting to come through again. :)

Val, sometimes it's just "time" and not only for gaming! If you are still running Windows 7, the end of support is coming up in about a year.

I backed this one, too. The graphics are very appealing to me.
