After first catching my attention at E3 2017, Moonlighter has finally been given an official launch date! Digital Sun and 11 Bit Studios has released a new trailer featuring the story, some gameplay, and plenty of hype as they gear for a May 29th launch on PC, PS4, and XB1.
I have to admit that when I first saw the game, I just thought it was going to be another today dungeon diver game with the focus being on powering up, upgrading gear, and defeating the boss with an "or else" story. It wasn't until I played it and started using the shop keeping part of the game to keep busy during the day that I saw that Moonlighter offered something new.
Before going further into the game, check out the new launch trailer:
Being able to set everything to your own price, figure out the worth of the multiple items you find from nighttime dungeon diving, and feeling the sensation that you earned an upgrade for your gear rather than it being a reward really change the feel of the game's style. There is just a unique quality that has made this game one that I have kept in mind and have been waiting for.
While I've only been able to complete the first dungeon, multiple times, in the demo, I'm very excited to see what comes next! Are you looking forward to getting your hands on Moonlighter?
