    Tags: Chironex Studios; This Starry Void

    Perhaps I was too quick to declare that grid-based dungeon crawlers were going away. Today we spotted a new one on Steam called This Starry Void, in development by Australian indie Chironex Studios. Like Vaporum it's a single character game, where you pilot a robotic drone that has been sent to investigate an abandoned spacecraft near Saturn. Apparently things get pretty heavy from there. The game has an interesting cel-shaded visual style, which you can see in its new alpha trailer. I'll post that here along with the description from its official website:



    This Starry Void is a science-fiction RPG in the vein of old-school dungeon crawlers. As a crew-member of the Stellar Emergency Vehicle This Starry Void, you will take control of the Remote Excursion Device RED-1 and investigate an abandoned spacecraft - sparking a mystery that will lead from the depths of space to the moons of Saturn and deep into the void that binds the universe.

    Features include:
    • Strategic combat system
    • No XP levels - customise RED-1 through equipment and component upgrades
    • Range of skills including combat, utility, movement
    • "Graphic Novel" art style
    • A unique soundtrack that veers from new-classical to dark ambient
    • A narrative that spans light years
    According to its Steam page, This Starry Void is due out sometime next year. A demo of the game will be available during PAX Online throughout next week.
