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 mythologies. You play as Hilda, a brave young warrior of the Northwind Legion who embarks on a journey to the great city of Aphes to rescue her lost father, while discovering the truth behind the city’s curse.

The way Hilda fights is fully tied to her character progression, and it’s fully customizable to let players decide on their own fighting style. The talent system allows you to choose and expand the way you fight by choosing two of six completely different weapons along the way and mixing them as you wish. The gameplay elements are inspired by soul-style games alongside a lighter, dynamic combat system, to create a fresh take on the modern action RPG genre, giving you a harmonious difficulty and exploration balance.

But let’s discuss everything in order!

Welcome to the city of Aphes

Your journey begins in the beautiful ancient city of Aphes. From the mist-covered bazaar streets to gloomy sewers and deep fissures filled with glittering crystals, the landscapes of Aphes are breathtaking and full of danger. You will learn about the city and the world in general by collecting various notes, sightseeing, interacting with the locals and reading Hilda’s diary, which she will update during her journey.

Every part of the city is truly unique and different, not only in visual style, but also in the enemies that inhabit them. Be on the lookout as you contemplate the majestic buildings around you!

Master your combat skills

As mentioned earlier, Asterigos: Curse of the Stars features a robust and dynamic combat system. Hilda can choose from a number of different weapon types, such as sword and shield, double blades, spear, war hammer, staff, or even magical bracelets, and she can equip two of them at once.

You can also swap any weapon for a different one to better adapt your tactics and combat style along the way, making you completely unpredictable for your enemies!

In addition, you can improve each weapon and increase your special abilities. Experiment with your fighting style and find what suits you best.

Meet your enemies

Let’s talk about enemies. The world of asterigos is full of dangerous and unorthodox creatures. There are over 60 different enemies that players can encounter during their journey. Some are easygoing while others possess incredible powers that are not so easy to wield.

Take this enemy. The acolytes turn into werewolves and as a result, they completely change their behavior in combat. The long-range attacks are replaced by close-range combat.

Take down the mighty bosses

Let’s talk boss fights! You can expect to fight over 20 powerful mythical bosses, each with its own unique combat mechanics. Think fast, choose the right weapon combination, learn the battle patterns and you will emerge victorious!

This giant crocodile is one of many behemoths that Hilda must kill and conquer on her journey to the heart of the Aphes.

Dodge his lightning fast attacks and strike with a combination of fast melee attacks and long range shots. Don’t forget to block and heal or else this giant will feast on a brave and young warrior!
