Zeboyd turns to sci-fi with Cosmic Star Heroine

Up next from the folks behind Cthulhu Saves the World and Penny Arcade Adventures episodes 3 and 4 is another turn-based role-playing game. Zeboyd's Cosmic Star Heroine is about a government agent wrapped up in a conspiracy who gets outed as a spy by her employer. When you've spent a career interacting with not-so-nice people and your identity becomes public, trouble ensues.

Cosmic Star Heroine will be up on Kickstarter eventually, but for now, a few details: the game is built with Unity, has (improved) 2D pixel art, and isn't a parody, though humor is still a focus. Zeboyd is also calling back to Suikoden by letting players recruit for their own personal spy headquarters. That was the line that got my attention, anyway.

"Unlike previous games we’ve worked on, we don't want to save up news and art for the game just for big sporadic reveals," writes the studio. "We're going to be more open with this game’s development so we will be sharing updates, news, design musings, art, and graphics on a regular basis."

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
