cosmic star heroine sci-fi rpg coming to linux soon in gaming news

Since #Zeboyd Games are back in the news. Their latest new #retro-styled RPG gaming #adventure Cosmic Star Heroine [official site] has made a debut on Steam. Hence this is exciting news for Linux since the native release is expected to follow. However the Zeboyd are working on the Linux and Mac port.

Linux support:

According to developer Zeboyd, Linux is going to be in the mix. Consider this a formal confirmation.

“I don’t know when the Linux build is coming, but it’s still planned.”

Since the studio name might not ring a bell, think Cthulhu Saves the World. Which is not available for Linux, but playable in Wine. So the new Cosmic Star Heroine title is not available for Linux yet. But does hold RPG inspirations from Quake 3, Chrono Trigger and Phantasy Star. Hence the Cosmic Star Heroine story revolves around a top space spy gone rogue after uncovering a conspiracy. The Zeboyd developers create some great games. So it’s great to see this on is out, even if it is only on Windows so far. Which was originally planned a couple of years earlier during the Kickstarter in 2013.

Check out the launch trailer:

Since gaming revolves around Alyssa L’Salle, the top agent of the Agency of Peace & Intelligence. After she uncovers some terrible truths, not burned by the Agency. Hence she ventures across the galaxy recruiting a party to fight back in turn-based combat.

Features:

  • The best of classic and modern RPGs!
  • Brisk pacing that respects your time! Save anywhere!
  • No separate battle screen! Battles take place directly in the areas that you explore!
