Welcome to a world of myth and legend, where monsters plague mankind with suffering. Developed by Acme Gamestudio and published by tinyBuild, Asterigos: Curse Of The Stars is a visually stunning new action RPG set in a Greek & Roman-inspired world of high fantasy, coming to PC and consoles this Fall.
With exploration inspired by ‘souls-like’ action RPGs and a lighter, more flexible approach to combat, Asterigos sets players loose upon the monster-infested City of Aphes. Explore its streets, hidden paths and colossal structures as you battle beasts, fiends and god-like beings. Climb its peaks, delve into its glittering crystal-lined depths and immerse yourself in this thrilling fantasy world.
Variety is the spice of war. As brave young warrior Hilda, players will master a wide arsenal of weapon types, each with their own distinct fighting styles. Sword & shield, dual blades, spears, hammers, or even magical staves and bracelets. Equip two weapons at a time and switch between them freely in combat. Each weapon style offers its own challenges and rewards, and there’s no shortage of foes to hone your skills against.
Featuring dozens of different monster varieties to encounter, and over twenty boss battles to test your mettle against, the cursed City of Aphes will challenge you fully before letting you unravel its deepest secrets. Discover the truth behind the curse through side-quests, forgotten documents and even Hilda’s own diary of sketches, observations and thoughts.
With beautiful visuals, cinematic animation and gorgeous vistas aplenty, Asterigos is testament to what independent studios can achieve with the Unreal 4 engine. Developed by Taiwanese team Acme Gamestudio.
