Sunrider: The Mask of Arcadius to be Published by Sekai Project October 1 on Steam

Love in Space is excited to officially announce that the second chapter of the Sunrider trilogy, “THE MASK OF ARCADIUS” will be published on Steam by Sekai Project on October 1.  The Mask of Arcadius adds hours of new story content, game play, and more to the base Sunrider game. Players of First Arrival will be pleased to learn that the Mask of Arcadius utilizes a rewritten battle system which substantially reduces lag, as well implementing a new hex grid which opens up previously impossible strategies. Further, players who were disappointed with the small squad size in First Arrival will be pleased to learn that new mercenary ships are now available for hire to increase your fleet.

The Mask of Arcadius will be released in two editions.  The Steam edition will have some story content cut from the release. All of the cut content can be restored to the Steam copy via a patch which will launch at http://sunrider-vn.com at the same time as the Steam release.  Once installed, the patch will restore the cut content to the Steam edition, so you will be able to play the game uncut through the Steam client. Sekai Project hopes to eventually integrate the patch into the Steam edition, but this is not expected to happen at the same time as the release.

We hope that you look forward to the Mask of Arcadius and enjoy it when it comes out on October 1. For now, here’s just a preview.

  1. Will this be free to play like the 1st or will this be a game that you have to buy 1st and then you can play it? It be great to get this free just like the 1st.

  2. Okay, I need to leave this comment here, like… right now… I’ve been putting this off for no particular reason other than being so overwhelmed and overworked blah blah, but that is no excuse!

    Hello to all the wonderful people who are working on this title. I usually stay away from “unfinished” titles, but I came across Sunrider purely by chance and I was like “Eeeehh, I’ve a few hours to kill, let’s take a peek”…

    Oh… my… word…

    I honestly did not download the game expecting much, after all it is still in development and whatnot, but I am totally and utterly hooked. Yes there are still a lot of things to fix. Yes it is not complete yet. Yes this and yes that… BUT! this has so much potential.

    I cannot wait to see where this will go and what more you guys will bring to the table.

    Keep up the wonderful work and thank you for a truly enjoyable experience with Sunrider so far.

    All of the best for your future endeavours!

  3. I uhm…dont wanna bother but is Sunrider:The Mask of Arcadius out already? I cant find it on steam if there is a second way to download please say i wanna play it so bad :D

  4. Greetings from Italy! ^.^
    I just downloaded from Steam “The Mask of Arcadius” and everything seems to be fine!
    Thank you so much for creating this wonderful VN, it is the first one that I’ve ever played and it contains all the stuff that I really love (exciting space adventures, a lot of dialogues, a great variety of mecha and a superb battle system! And of course, epic musics and some super cool characters!).
    I found this VN accidentally on Steam, and I can’t belive it is for free. Suddenly I decided that you guys deserve at least a support message and a little donation, so keep up with this wonderful work!
    See you in space! :D

  5. Omg…i just finished episode 2 from Sunrider…yall are bad ass for real…the battle has getting way harder…i like it :P. I cant wait for the next part. It was amazing!!

    • If the battles get any harder, I’ll be saving every shot – never mind every turn.

      I had to “Research Debug” refund and switch from Ultra Sniper and the Kinetics to Flak Fortress and the Super Shielders, just to get through the last few missions.

      This game’s battle system is so absolutely superior to all those tacticless ‘Tactics’ clones that the Japanese make. Very enjoyable. But so difficult.
