Okay, I don’t hand out awards at all. But if I did, this trailer for Moonlighter, the upcoming game from 11 bit studios and Digital Sun would take home a few trinkets and trophies. A direct poke in the eyeball to all those folks who get all frothy at the mouth over even the most subtle differences in cross platform games, here we see that yes, the perfectly solid pixel art in the game is exactly the same across anything it plays on. Lovely.
So, what’s it all about? Well, here you go:
During a long-passed archaeological excavation, a set of Gates were discovered. People quickly realized that these ancient passages lead to different realms and dimensions – providing brave and reckless adventurers with treasures beyond measure. Rynoka, a small commercial village, was founded near the excavation site providing refuge and a place for adventurers to sell their hard-earned riches.
Moonlighter is an Action RPG with rogue-lite elements following the everyday routines of Will, an adventurous shopkeeper that dreams of becoming a hero.
So, yeah. Get this on your watch and want lists. The game is coming to May 29 for $19.99 on Steam, gog.com, and Humble Bundle, while console owners will see this on PS4 and Xbox One on the same date. Switch owners need to wait until sometime in Q3 2018 for their version, but that’s okay because they have way too many games out now to keep them all busy.
