Today, Armor Games Studios is excited to share the announcement of In Stars and Time, an all-new RPG adventure from Adrienne Bazir (aka insertdisc5) about finding hope in a hopeless place to save the world from a mysterious time loop. In Stars and Time will be coming to PC in 2023 and is availble to wishlist today on Steam.

In Stars and Time is a brand-new adventure from developer, cartoonist and animator Adrienne Bazir, creator of  START AGAIN START AGAIN START AGAIN: a prologue. While an understanding of this cult-classic game prototype is not necessary to enjoy insertdisc5’s upcoming game, it served as an introduction to the setting and characters of In Stars and Time.

This inclusive turn-based RPG follows a found family of adventurers at the pinnacle of their journey to defeat a king who is slowly freezing the land in time. After meeting their untimely demise, party leader Siffrin discovers they are actually stuck in a time loop, able to start the day over again with nobody the wiser. 

However, what initially appears to be a blessing in disguise quickly begins to weigh on Siffrin as he experiences the loop over and over with no end in sight. With the help of his dear companions and a cheeky being of ethereal starlight, can Siffrin find a way to end this temporal tragedy once and for all?

A gripping fantasy time loop story with a lot of heart, In Stars and Time is an RPG for fans of the genre looking for an intelligent and thought-provoking experience, featuring a diverse and compelling cast of characters you’re sure to fall in love with.

Developer Adrienne Bazir said: "Finally, In Stars and Time has been revealed!!! I love stories that make me cry and feel for the characters, so I hope my game will also make you feel many emotions. Look forward to more information about the game soon!"

In Stars and Time will be announced today as part of The MIX's 10th anniversary showcase. Players who want to experience a taste of the game’s world and characters can try START AGAIN START AGAIN START AGAIN: a prologue, now on or Steam for $12 CAD (Around £7 / $9.50).
