Cosmic Star Heroine pits female lead against classic RPG gameplay


Cosmic Star Heroine is a blatant homage to 90s-era roleplaying games with one key difference: Instead of playing the part of a plucky young boy cast into epic adventure, players assume the role of blue-haired secret agent Alyssa L'Salle.

"Alyssa L'Salle is one of the galactic government's top agents and always manages to save the day," states the game's official plot description. "But when she accidentally uncovers a dark conspiracy, her own government outs her as a legendary spy and the people's champion!"

"Sure, now she has hordes of adoring fans but every villainous organization she's ever crossed in her career knows who she is and is out for her blood! Can she save the day once more while she faces her greatest challenge... Everyone!?"

Developer Zeboyd Games is best known as the studio behind the third and fourth installments of Penny Arcade's On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness. With 29 days remaining in Zeboyd's Kickstarter effort, the game has attracted $7,075 of its $100,000 goal. Assuming this fundraising drive is successful, Cosmic Star Heroine is slated to make its debut on the PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Vita platforms at some as yet undetermined point in the future.
