FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 9/16/2021


Independent developer Paper Castle invites players to sign up for their new Kickstarter page for upcoming turn-based RPG with roguelite elements, Wander Stars. Combine words and make your own fighting techniques in a story-driven adventure inspired by classic anime coming to PC and Nintendo Switch. 

Sign up today to be notified when the campaign goes live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/papercastlegames/wander-stars

The story of Wander Stars follows Ringo, a young martial artist looking for her brother, and Wolfe, a mysterious scoundrel running from his past, as they join forces in an unlikely partnership to collect the pieces of the Wanderstar Map.

Features
 
  • Your words have power - Call out your attacks by combining words and making your own crazy techniques with a special word-building combat system!
 
  • An anime you can play - Each run plays like an anime episode where you experience the adventure through exciting cutscenes with limited animation and intense battles.
 
  • Make your own path - Explore every place you visit through a randomized map where you decide your own way and discover treasures, rivals, special events and more!
 
  • Binge and reruns - Replay episodes to learn hidden aspects of the story, find any events you missed, and earn valuable resources that carry over other episodes.
