GAMEPLAY VIDEO

Hi everyone! The game is at approximatively 15% through development. The purpose of the alpha footage below is to show Leo's move-sets and animations, some of the levels and the sound design. I hope it'll give you a feel of the game's ambiance. 

The UI is far from final and I'm working on new textboxes (improving the readability and including the portraits) which will be shown in a next update!


As you know, this is not a "Marketing-Kickstarter", where the game is 95% done and I'd just be looking for a form of "advertising" through a public campaign. No, this is a "Kickstarting-Kickstarter" (haha): I need your support to be able to work on this game for another full year and deliver the best possible version of Lunark

I hope that those who are undecided will be convinced by this video that Lunark will be something truly special.


On track!

We're not giving up anything! The beginning of the week was very positive for a mid-campaign. I streamed the process of making the animation below. I was very pleased to be able to speak to some of you and answer some of your questions. That's definitely something I want to do again.

Sums up my main inspirations quite well...

SUMMER IN MARA by Chibig

"Summer in Mara is a single-player summer adventure about farming and crafting, with an easy-RPG system and exploration elements. You'll be Koa, a little adventurer who has to take care of her own island. You can also sail away on your boat and explore an open ocean full with islands and people."

This is so cute!
This is so cute!

"The game is inspired by the exploration in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, the farming in Stardew Valley, the visual aspect of Studio Ghibli’s movies and the adventure feeling of your childhood summers."

      Awesome. Love this. Playing flashback at the moment on switch to get in the mood, you’d definitely are hitting the exact tone with your great animation and sound. I‘m sure i would love mission packs on this already 😊

      That video made my day, thank you!
      Loved the sound effects too, especially for the spaceship.
      The way your character moves, magic :)

      Ha ha, at first I had a hard time seeing what you meant, because I looked at the running animation, but now I totally see what you mean :) Almost as if the upper body leans back a little. Fine question indeed :P

      Looks so good!

      Why does he have a prominent gut/crotch-forward lean when standing/walking? Is he supposed to have a goofy looking walk? 😁

      Looks super cool :)

      Also, your constant answers and information have been a really good read. If successful I hope you will keep up the transparency and keep people informed through the making of the game. Especially because it is so fun to hear about the game making proces ;)
