It looks like Sabotage Studio is working on DLC for its retro RPG Sea of Stars.
The company’s CEO Thierry Boulanger was recently interviewed on Canada Radio, where he explained the company is working on another game with the same development process it adopted for previous game The Messenger (thanks Kakuchopurei
Essentially that means the main development team will start work on the next game, while a smaller team will remain to work on DLC for Sea of Stars, just as it did with its ninja platformer.
This isn’t the first mention of DLC, with the developer promising extra content as part of its Kickstarter campaign way back in 2020.
In a blog post at the time, it stated the “fully fledged side-adventure DLC” would be called Throes of the Watchmaker and would “expand even more on the world of Sea of Stars”.
Moreover, the DLC would “provide additional insight on the narrative overarching all of our games”.
That confirmed Sea of Stars and The Messenger are connected in some way. But we’ll have to play the DLC to find out how.
Sea of Stars sold 100k copies in its first day, a hugely impressive number for an indie game.
It’s available now on PC and Switch, as well as on both Game Pass and PS Plus subscription services.
