Upcoming RPG Asterigos will feature ‘a hub-based world where choice matters’

It’s a bit rare to see a modern RPG choose a comic book aesthetic over the earthy palettes and strict realism we have become accustomed to. But the first gameplay trailer for Asterigos: Curse of the Stars shows us that a little touch of Pixar might not be that bad. The action RPG from the new outfit Acme Gamestudio has just been listed on Steam with a release window for ‘Fall 2022’.

The game plays you as Hilda, a warrior who goes in search of her father in the city of Aphes. The city and the myth in the game are “inspired by” Greek and Roman myth, but looking at some of these monster designs and the scientist type in the lab coat, it’s clear that the developers are not limited in style.
