A studio in Quebec

Based in the Saint-Roch district, Sabotage studio has been active in the world of video games since 2016. In 2018, the team launched The Messenger, which was very successful with audiences. Encouraged by this positive feedback, the studio decided to begin developing a role-playing game (RPG). Inspired by 90s classics, the game becomes Sea of ​​​​Stars.

By combining retro aesthetics and modern design, the Sabotage team wanted to create a game that would evoke memories and a certain nostalgia for audiences while providing a new and unique experience. For the members of the team, it was natural to present a universe reminiscent of the 90s. For many, this is the start of a long love affair with video games.

“Sea of ​​Stars is the game of my dreams, and seeing the great enthusiasm of players and critics makes everyone at Sabotage happy,” says Thierry Boulanger, co-founder and creative director of the Sabotage studio.

The game

Sea of ​​​​Stars opens a world where the player can freely navigate and follow multiple quests. It is possible to embark on adventures by meeting other characters and engaging in turn-based battles. We can also develop in the proposed world without restrictions. The player can choose to swim, fish, cook, climb, or even visit taverns to listen to music.
