What is Gravastar?

Gravastar is a sci-fi fantasy JRPG (Japanese-style Role Playing Game) for PC and consoles that combines a traditional JRPG aesthetic with a unique and fast-paced turn-based battle system inspired by 2D arcade fighting games. The battle system in Gravastar is set apart from traditional, turn-based JRPGs by its real-time button-combo input system. Alter the flow of battle, master your character's movesets, build enormous combos, and string together chains to dispatch your foes.

You are Baird, an orphan boy on the exoplanet Aethera, who has just violently discovered that he is a Spectre, a rare being with power tied to the stars. Begin your quest, meet companions, and learn to harness the power of the stars on your journey to save Aethera from a fanatic zealot, hell-bent on plunging the Universe into darkness. Only then, can you truly fulfill your destiny.

Who are we?

Studio Atma was founded nearly 3 years ago when Gravastar was still only the seed of an idea. The first public demos of Gravastar's unique turn-based combo-based battle system were showcased at a variety of Seattle conventions in 2016 and we couldn't have been happier with the response. The new year brings with it whispers of an overworld as we continue our quest to bring Gravastar to all the JRPG fans out there!
