“From the charming characters, the excellent execution of the time-looping story, and the lovingly crafted visuals, In Stars And Time is a unique experience I never want to forget, and I do believe it to be an indie masterpiece.”
10/10 – Noisy Pixel

“In Stars and Time is an RPG classic waiting to happen. This game asks new questions of the time loop genre, all while developing a loveable cast of misfit heroes and a mysterious fantasy world that you’ll want to stay in forever.”
9/10 – Pocket Tactics

“For a week, I stayed up late every night because I couldn’t put it down. I dreamed about it. I sat at my desk at work, watching the clock, eager for the hour when I could finally get home and try again to unravel the mystery of what was really going on in the hearts and heads of protagonist Siffrin and his companions.”

About This Game

What would you do if you were forced to relive your failures over and over again?

In Stars and Time tells the story of Siffrin and their adventurer friends—a found family bound together by fate in order to end the tyrannical reign of an evil king. But as victory is just within the party’s grasp, a tragedy occurs, the clock resets, and they have to do it all again.

As Siffrin’s the only one who notices this loop, each new start wears away at his cheerful veneer, yet he keeps going in hopes he can end this temporal tragedy once and for all.

In Stars and Time is a time-looping RPG adventure. With each loop, Siffrin gains a new perspective on the world around them, opening up new solutions to puzzles and allowing them to make better choices in conversation. Equip memories as armor, pray to the Change God to improve your team’s capabilities each loop, and challenge deadly foes to Rock, Paper, Scissors as Siffrin seeks the truth.

✦ Our Adventurers

  • Siffrin (he/they): Stressed, depressed, and under duress. (Don’t worry about it. They’re doing fine.) The punmaster protagonist of our neverending tale.
  • Mirabelle (she/her): A caring and nervous housemaiden mysteriously blessed by the god she so ardently follows.
  • Isabeau (he/him): Defender with a heart of gold. Cares dearly for his people and his friends.
  • Odile (she/her): The mature and nonsensical researcher studying…something. (No, she will not tell you what it is.)
  • Bonnie (they/them): Wait a minute, who brought this kid along???

✦ Features

  • Save the world through the power of Rock, Paper, Scissors in strategic turn-based RPG combat encounters.
  • Ignore the limits of time and space to fix your past mistakes by repeating the same two days over and over again.
  • Equip the memories you have of your friends to make your party stronger in combat.
  • Watch the fate of this world unfold as you escape the twists and turns of this endless(???) loop.
  • Eat samossas with your friends!
  • Get heckled by a cheeky ethereal being of infinite starlight.
  • Pray to a god for good luck in your travels. You’re gonna need it.

If any of this interests you, you might also want to play the game’s initial prototype, START AGAIN START AGAIN START AGAIN: A Prologue. While you don’t need to play it to understand In Stars and Time, it’s fun to see the game’s roots.
