Who is “Jaiden”?

Hello there, that’s me! I am the owner of Studio Alemni and creator of Legends of Astravia. I write all of the articles and social media posts for the Legends of Astravia, so pardon the occasional switching of “we” and “I”.

Can I help with Programming / Music / Graphics / Etc.?

Studio Alemni is not looking to expand its development team at this time.

Are you looking for a Publisher?

Relationships that provide funding, marketing, and localization opportunities are always welcome. Feel free to contact us.

What is the game about?

Legends of Astravia is a charming retro RPG where you journey across a world of magic to reconstruct the fragments of your past. Influenced by 90s and early 2000s-era JRPGs, the game features hybrid time-based battles and an explorable world filled with twisting dungeons and countless secrets.

You’ll find more information on the detailed game page.

Is it on Steam?

Yes! Check it out here.

How much will it cost?

The game’s price is TBD.

When will the game be done?

The projected release for “Part 1” is Q1 2025. “Part 2” is TBD.

Is the game episodic?

The game will be released in exactly two parts, either as two separate games (think Golden Sun & Golden Sun: The Lost Age), or with the second half as DLC if it ends up being too short to justify an entire game release. This is because the world and scope of the story is far too large to fit in a single game, especially for a tiny indie developer! We promise that each installment will be a full game experience and will not feel incomplete or unfinished.

Why not release the whole game at once instead of in two parts?

Due to restrictions in both development time and budget, it is not feasible to release a game at this scale all at once without taking a very long time. Splitting the game into two parts allows folks to enjoy the game much sooner.

Can I help beta test the game?

Closed betas are periodically run within the official Discord server. You must have a Steam account. Please join the server and keep an eye out for details.

Can I stream or record it?

Of course! It is highly encouraged, unless you are a beta tester, in which case we only ask that you please do not stream or record beta versions.

If you do stream the game, please let us know, we’d love to watch!

Will the game be available on Nintendo Switch / Xbox / Playstation / Etc.?

Currently, the game is only due to release on Windows, macOS and Linux. Please note that the Linux version may not be available immediately, and may only be solely for supporting the Steam Deck.

That said, if the game gets enough funding and support by the time the second half is completed, porting to consoles can happen, too.

Can I be a voice actor?

There will be no voice acting added to Legends of Astravia.

If this changes for whatever reason after the game is released, an announcement will be posted on this website and on all our social media channels.

Can I help translate / localize the game to [language]?

The game already has arrangements for Japanese translation, and we are actively seeking someone to help with Japanese language support, via QA, social media and our communities. However, this is currently only a volunteer or revenue-share opportunity. If you are interested, please contact us here.

Otherwise, as much as we’d love to have Legends of Astravia available in various other languages, we’re not hiring anyone at this time. We do not intend on using a generalized localization service—we are only interested in working with independent translators.

Feel free to contact us if you are interested, but please understand that this isn’t a guarantee that your services will be used. Translation into other languages probably will not be considered until the game’s completion, even if offered for free, as the process to integrate is too arduous and takes away from the game’s development.

Is this game LGBT?

How can I help or support the game?

Wishlisting on Steam is a huge help, and costs nothing. You can also donate directly to the game. The biggest aspect affecting development progress is funding at this point.

Keeping an eye out for updates here or on Twitter and telling your friends about the game is also greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!

What script did you use for X? Can you teach me Y?

Nearly every feature in Legends of Astravia has been custom coded and tailored to fit the game. Unfortunately I’m a little too busy to teach or provide advice. The internet is full of fantastic resources, which is what I used in my several year journey to make the game.
