Indie RPG Sea of Stars Reaches Over 4 Million Players
Sea of Stars, the incredibly popular indie RPG by developer Sabotage Studio, has surpassed 4 million players since it launched less than 4 months ago.
Sea of Stars took the indie scene by storm when it launched back on August 28, 2023. Since then, it has garnered a huge following of fans, with the game even getting DLC in the future. Of course, in a year where an indie horror game is outselling COD, it isn’t surprising that something as polished as Sea of Stars does well.
Sea of Stars has seen an immense amount of success since it launched, resulting in over 4 million players picking it up. It’s unsurprising how popular the game has become, considering both its critical acclaim and Xbox Game Pass Day One release. It has gone on to win several coveted awards, including Best Indie at The Game Awards and Best Indie Game at the Golden Joysticks. It has even been recognized as one of the best games in 2023 by BAFTA.
Sabotage Studio’s co-founder, Thierry Boulanger, spoke about the incredible reception the game has received, as well as the ever-increasing player count:
“Sea of Stars is the game of my dreams, and seeing its quest resonate so strongly with players and critics means the world to everyone at Sabotage. The team behind this game is the most talented and dedicated group I could have ever hoped to create Sea of Stars with, and I’m again reminded of their brilliance as we progress with creating Sea of Stars’ upcoming DLC, Throes of the Watchmaker. For fans to have recognized our adventure in such an incredibly prosperous year for RPGs alongside new arrivals from the genre’s biggest franchises … we simply just cannot thank you enough for supporting us, and we can’t wait to show you what’s next for Sea of Stars.”
You can pick up Sea of Stars on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One for $34.99, or try it for free on Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, iam8bit will also be releasing exclusive physical editions for Switch, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S in 2024. For more articles just like this one, be sure to check out our Games Hub.
