Sea of Star History

The game includes elements of puzzle-solving and turn-based combat, and players can control up to six characters.

The game draws inspiration from role-playing games like Illusion of Gaia, Breath of Fire, and Chrono Trigger, featuring navigation mechanics, side quests, and combat focused on finding enemies’ ‘elemental weaknesses’.
