Throwback JRPG “Star Shift Origins” Coming to PC on 8 November

G-DEVS has announced that Star Shift Origins is coming to PC on 8 November. Inspired by retro JRPG classics such as Final Fantasy 7 and Chrono Trigger, Star Shift Origins tells a sci-fi tale with a throwback aesthetic.

Here’s the official breakdown of Star Shift Origins from G-DEVS:

Star Shift Origins tells the story of the first Crew of the Dauntless. Trapped in an alternate reality and on the run, the desperate crew searches for answers while being hunted by the relentless Earth Systems Alliance (ESA).

The game features a turn-based active time combat system with a maximum party size of 7 and multiple playable characters. There are no levels in Star Shift, instead skills and stat increases are managed by knowledge points acquired from battle which are used to gain new skills and increase stats. Victory in combat relies on the player being strategic to achieve the desired outcome.

Star Shift implements a complex skill tree system. Customize your characters with unique skills and abilities. Increase stats through passive skills, or learn active skills. Unique skill trees exist depending on the species of the character, as well as their class. With an incredible soundtrack from multiple independent artists, the player is sure to stay engaged and in the moment.
