Virgo Vs The Zodiac is a sci-fi/fantasy JRPG where you play as a single character. The game features traditional turn based combat with a twist: Guarding, countering and timing your actions carefully as well as predicting your foes' moves is essential during on Virgo’s twisted cosmic quest to bring back the Golden Age, a period of peace, symmetry and balance, or so she thinks.
In this galaxy where every action means a reaction, you’ll play as Virgo, the Holy Queen, or so-called Dreadful Queen by heretics, bringing mayhem to the Zodiac Realms and leaving a trail of stardust on your way, all to fit her excessively righteous worldview.
After stealing the Talaria, winged shoes of Mercury, her father, she marches in her crusade towards the Temples of Saturn in search of Capricorn, her first adversary. Along her journey to achieve Purity and Perfection, she will encounter many foes whom she deems heretics, but also those she finds friendship in, such as her trusty companion, Gingerbread Man, a delicious cookie who assists Virgo on her journey.
In Virgo Vs The Zodiac, the whole universe is defined by the Zodiac Qualities System, which will track Virgo’s Zodiac Quality allignment, divided into MUTABLE, FIXED and CARDINAL. Through your choices in game, Virgo’s personality (and clothes!) will change as you go, based on one of the Qualities. This will also help you dive into the minds of the 12 Zodiac archetypes through the game’s quirky characters giving a deeper experience and making the world to feel more organic.
Choices are color-coded to reflect which Quality they'll be tied to. In the full game, direct conversations with a respective Quality Zodiac and story bits will be unlocked depending on how deep into the Quality itself the player is.
Perhaps a conversation or two with Cancer or Leo may change how they'll treat you once you
No obvious Good/Evil choices! You’ll never feel guilty for the options you choose throgh the course of the game. From small stat gains to large scale plot-twisting events, those decisions will make a great impact in the world around you, changing your path and other character’s destinies, as Virgo’s strives to trick FATE!
Unlike most traditional JRPGs, Virgo Vs The Zodiac features heavy commitment to every action taken in combat, and therefore, their effects are always highly significant. No turns will feel wasted as you fight your way through the galaxy.
Being mostly based on a simple but powerful Guard/Counter system, you’ll be able to protect blows and retaliate right away with a multitude of different Guards and Counters-attacks by equipping different shields. Every piece of equipment will grant you new abilities in addition to stats, and mix-matching to find a perfect combo of abilities is freely available, also adding a lot of replayability! Classes in Virgo will be tied to a Zodiac Quality but won’t strictly limit your equipment availability or build variations.
Enemies fight based on the Zodiac Qualities system as well, displaying their strengths and weakness through their color-coded sprites in battle; a foe wielding a purple-ish weapon will likely strike you down with Cardinal abilities, but one who whields a pink-ish shield will defend Fixed attacks much better!
Combat in the Astrological Realms is unforgiving and every encounter has the possibility of resulting in defeat if your actions aren’t timed carefully against your foes! Constant adaptation of strategies to face different opponents is required to achieve victory over the Heretic! Expect no attack-spam, unless you just want to enjoy the story in the Stress-free mode, with no drawbacks other than a more forgiving combat playthrough.
In addition to regular turn-based abilities, you’ll also come across certain real-time precise-hit attacks and other sorts of timed hits, such as combos of different degrees of complexity, but more info on these will come out later!
As you delve through the most heretical star clusters of the galaxy, you'll find a vast amount of explorable areas brimming with interactive objects. A large amount of detail is put to make every interaction unique and reward players who take their time to check their surroundings. Many choices that will impact the game can be brought up through world interaction and exploration.
