Fellow adventurers! We are thrilled to announce that A Rite from the Stars, the debut game from developer Risin’ Goat, will be releasing on July 19th! Available at release for PC & Mac, with Linux soon to follow, A Rite from the Stars introduces us to Kirm, a mute boy from the Makoa tribe, who has been chosen by the Stars to undertake a mystical rite of passage to become a legend among his people. To achieve this, players can freely explore the Mystical Island of Kaikala and pursue the three paths of Wisdom, Courage, and Spirit in any order they choose. Each path offers a new style of puzzles and obstacles to overcome, from solving riddles to manipulating ancient machinery to tag-team coconut dodgeball! Not to mention Kirm’s playable meerkat companion Mirk and guiding star Hoku, who are on hand to collaborate on puzzle solutions and lend insight along the way.

Inspired by classics like Machinarium and the Legend of Zelda series, A Rite from the Stars features vibrant 3D environments and a fully orchestrated soundtrack recorded with a live chorus. It’s voiced in the Makoan, the original language developed especially for the game, with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.

We are very excited to announce two new additions to our adventure game catalog: A Rite from the Stars, releasing this summer, and Bleeding Moons, coming later this year!

About A Rite from the Stars
The debut game of Spanish developer Risin’ Goat, A Rite from the Stars is a fun and clever fully 3D point & click adventure game about Kirm, a young mute boy chosen by the Stars to undertake a mystical rite of passage to become a legend among his people.

In this coming-of-age story, players will explore the Mystical Island of Kaikala, home to the Makoa tribe, and pursue the three paths of Wisdom, Courage, and Spirit in any order they choose. Each path introduces new mechanics to solve unique challenges, ranging from arcade sequences to musical puzzles, with Kirm’s playable meerkat companion Mirk and guiding star Hoku on hand to collaborate on puzzle solutions and lend insight along the way.

A Rite from the Stars features beautiful 3D environments, a fully orchestrated soundtrack recorded with a live chorus, and a complete original Makoan language developed for the game! A Rite from the Stars will be released for PC, Mac, and Linux, and feature French, Italian, German, and Spanish translations on release. Learn more at www.risingoat.com.

About Bleeding Moons
Winner of seven Alex d’Or awards, including Best Game and Best Story, Bleeding Moons is the first game from IAN Games and designer Olivier Larrieu. This interactive narrative game thrusts players into the role of Ian de Valmain, a young nobleman-turned-assassin who must infiltrate a mercenary camp to help save his homeland.

A second son not destined for greatness or inheritance, Ian is caught up in political intrigue and a violent war he was not prepared for, and now struggles with what he must do. Your choices will affect not only the outcome of the war but also the shape of Ian’s soul and the love of his life as you navigate to one of many possible endings. Bleeding Moons’ top-down graphics and focus on storytelling are reminiscent of Freebird Games’ To The Moon, which IAN Games cites as an inspiration. Learn more at www.iangames.com.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more about these two excellent games, and welcome to the Phoenix Online family!
