Musical Space Odyssey ‘Sixtar Gate: Startrail’ Launches on Steam Early Access
CFK has launched the Lyrebird Studio and Magical Works-developed rhythm adventure game Sixtar Gate: Startrail on Steam Early Access.
The publisher is using the service to create a new rhythm game with a foundation built around fans of the genre. They are including players at the earliest parts of development to shape the game in a “direction that everyone is satisfied with.”
The team is also bringing the game to Nintendo Switch, and they plan the Early Access period to last three to six months. After that, the finished game will have 40 playable songs and an Adventure Mode staring the game’s protagonist, Shii.
Currently, there are 15 licensed songs in the game. Before the official release, the team will launch new levels and updates through DLC packages.
Sixtar Gate: Startrail features space travel and musical-based storytelling coupled with charming artwork to give the rhythm gameplay more of an inherent, distinct identity. Players become the captain of a space vessel and, with their endearing navigation partner, Shii, aim to explore the Sixtar System. As players explore numerous colonized planets, the secretive stories buried within these areas’ pasts come to light with the power of music.
Main Producer Lyrebird Ferdinant has worked on the rhythm titles Pump It Up and OverRapid. The Sound Director, Sound Souler, is a talented composer who has created melodic, dream-like songs in various musicals experiences.
