Press Release: Love in Space and Sekai Project are pleased to announce the release of Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius on Steam.
Sunrider is a free tactical RPG/visual novel originally funded on Kickstarter. After successfully raising over $40 000 on Kickstarter, Love in Space has released the first two chapters of the Sunrider trilogy for free. The first chapter, Sunrider: First Arrival, arrived on Steam in July 2014 after a publishing agreement between Sekai Project and Love in Space. The second chapter, Mask of Arcadius, was once again published by Sekai Project on Steam on October 1, 2014.
Since release, the Sunrider series has moved over 120 000 units on Steam and holds a “very positive” user rating, with 93% of 684 user reviews giving the game a thumbs up. Sunrider provides users with an intricate hex based battle system which offers limitless strategies as well as a galaxy spanning war epic story.
Players assume the role of Captain Kayto Shields of the star ship Sunrider. After his home world is ruthlessly conquered by the space empire, “PACT,” he must travel across the galaxy to find allies to retake his home. Throughout his adventures, he will recruit mecha pilots and star ship captains who the player can control in challenging hex based battles. Players are further confronted with moral decisions throughout the story. With no choice being good or evil, players are forced to think what can be sacrificed to win the war.
With the success of Sunrider, Love in Space and Sekai Project plan to bring more games from the Sunrider universe to Steam. Please stay tuned for further announcements about where Sunrider will go in the future.
