Will this game be playable in widescreen?

Hey, it looks really good but the pics around are non-widescreen.

Will the game have that kind of resolution, or will we be able to play it in 16:9?

The pics you saw were likely from the "period correct" trailer. ie: back when "full screen" was a thing and we played our games on channel 3.
Luckily their motto is "Nostalgia in HD" so it will be utilizing some modern advancements like 16:9 and expanded colour palettes.
It will also likely be too big to fit on six floppy disks.

Thanks for the question and answer!

Von is correct. The original trailer for Starr Mazer is in 4:3 to capture the visual aesthetic of classic gaming. However we are developing the game with wide screen monitors/TVs in mind.

Nostalgia in HD means we'll be recreating what we "remember" those fantastic classic games being like without restricting ourselves to old color palettes, resolutions, etc.

Thanks again for your questions obippo. Please feel to ask us anything on the forums or email us directly at social@starrmazer.com
