Embark on a cosmic quest to dethrone the Zodiacs and revive the Golden Age, if the galaxy survives your wrath, that is.
Virgo Vs The Zodiac is a sci-fi/fantasy JRPG inspired by the Mario & Luigi RPG series and the Mother RPG series in which you play as an obsessed villain.
The game features traditional turn-based combat with real-time execution of moves: blocking, countering and timing your attacks carefully as well as predicting your foes' moves is essential to succeed in Virgo’s twisted and unforgiving 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, often called Dreadful Queen by heretics, bringing mayhem to the Zodiac Realms and leaving a trail of stardust on the way, all to fit her excessively righteous worldview.
"The constellations aren't aligned anymore. The end of the Golden Age marked the beginning of an era when the Zodiacs could reign over their realms without the interference of the strict system settled by the Rulers... but for my sister, that meant complete chaos. She has vowed to do something about it. And this is how she got in trouble, 9.14 Astronomical Units away from here, in a far far away realm, filled with goats..."
After Virgo swiftly steals the Talaria, winged shoes of Mercury, her father, she marches on 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.
Unforgiving timed-actions combat where all conflicts are lethal unless you protect yourself; precise timed attacks and blocks will bring an end to heresy.
