Take a closer look at the enemies and the world of asterigos before venturing out on his unforgettable and dangerous journey later this year.
Hello! My name is Cheng Hsien Lin, I am the Game Director at Acme Gamestudio and today I would like to tell you more about our game. Asterigos: Curse of the Stars.
This is a fantasy third-person action RPG inspired by Greek and Roman mythology. You play as Hilda, a brave young warrior from the Northwind Legion who embarks on a journey to the great City of Aphes to save her lost father from it, as she discovers the truth behind the city’s curse.
The way Hilda fights is completely tied to her character progression, and is fully adjustable for players to decide their own combat style. The talent system allows you to choose and expand your way of fighting by choosing two of six completely different weapons on the fly and mixing them as you wish. Game elements are inspired by soul games, coupled with a dynamic and lighter combat system, to create a new take on the modern action RPG genre, bringing you harmonious difficulty and exploration balance.
But let’s talk about everything in order!
Welcome to the City of Aphes
Your journey begins in the magnificent ancient city of Aphes. From mist-shrouded bazaar streets to gloomy sewers and deep chasms filled with glittering crystals, the landscapes of Aphes are breathtaking and fraught with danger. He will be able to learn more about the city and the world in general by collecting various notes, visiting places of interest, interacting with the locals, and reading Hilda’s diary, which she will update throughout her journey.
Each area of the city is truly unique and different, not only in visual style but also in the enemies that inhabit them. Stay on your toes as you gaze at the majestic buildings around you!
