Story & Gameplay

Play as a spunky heroine as she builds her party and home – finding her place in the world. With an innovative twist on combat, Flowstone Saga allows players to choose at will between turn-based and real-time combat – skillfully making use of puzzle mechanics to shake things up. Tactical thinking triumphs over pirates, giant beetles, and at least ONE axolotl! Fans of classic SNES and PlayStation RPGs will feel right at home as they explore, build, fight, and cast their way through the mysterious world of Ocean’s End.

Steam Next Fest Livestreams

Developers Andrew Aversa and Andrew Luers will stream the full game this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 10:00 a.m. Pacific / 1:00 p.m. Eastern. Make sure to stop by and say “hi!”
