Starstruck: Hands of Time, the genre-defying diorama musical where two kids and a giant hand race to rewrite history, gives a show-stopping performance on Steam for PC today with Starstruck: Prologue, the free first act of a multi-part musical adventure. The full Starstruck experience will debut in early 2021.
In 30XX, Earth is no more. In its place, a repressed façade corrupted by a mysterious force called “The Mold” lingers. To save the world, a moon colonist travels back in time 1000 years to a pivotal moment in Earth’s history, armed only with their own hand, a charming spaceship computer, and the knowledge two children in this time period are critically important to Earth’s history.
Literally reach into the lives of Edwin and Dawn, two ambitious, musically inclined children, to shape their future and the world around them. Stomp around their city as a giant disembodied hand, solving puzzles as the omnipresent moon colonist. Open new paths, remove obstacles, and change their world to save your own.
As Edwin and Dawn’s way forward opens, dive into their musical journey, playing guitar in rhythm sections of the adventure. Through the vocals and live instruments of a genre-spanning original soundtrack, experience courageous choices, teenage rebellion, and starstruck wonder expressed in prog rock, pop ballads, metal, and more, performed by virtuosos from around the world.
A diorama style brings whimsical life to Edwin and Dawn’s world, where toy cars and dollhouses blend with popsicle sticks, colorful cardboard, and citizens made of clay and felt. Explore picturesque places to unlock new guitars, side quests, and secret songs. Improvise musical notes in freeform sections throughout the game. In the full release, add songs and create their rhythm tracks with mod support.
“Every individual should live to the strum of their own guitar,” said Max Ponoroff, founder, Createdelic. “Starstruck: Hands of Time tells a timeless tale about growing up under the weight of expectation and idolization, but it’s also a creative space where players can break the mold by improvising notes and modding the game with the songs they love.”
Starstruck: Prologue brings the house down on Steam for PC today with 5 playable songs, 2 difficulty modes, and controller support, including for the iconic Guitar Hero II RedOctane X-Plorer Controller. The full release in early 2021 will support English with Japanese text localization.
