Star Renegades Is A Gorgeous Turn-Based RPG Caught In Its Own Time Loop

Star Renegades Is A Gorgeous Turn-Based RPG Caught In Its Own Time Loop

There’s a ton to love in the beautifully pixelated RPG roguelite Star Renegades. I just wish all of its ambitious ideas came together as elegantly as its art style.
