Update regarding the physical rewards of Moonlighter

Posted by Digital Sun Games (Creator)

Dear Backers,

We have some more information regarding the situation of the physical rewards.

The company we hired, and already paid the full amount of the rewards many months ago, has started answering our emails again. That's good news. They haven't totally disappeared which is what we feared at some point.

Apparently they have a complex situation on which part of their activities are being absorbed by another, larger company and, during the transition, nobody seems to be moving anything (or even taking responsibility for keeping customer happy and answering their emails...). We don't know a lot about the details.

They told us that they hope to have this resolved in a matter of a couple of weeks and then the new team will be able to start delivering orders again. We don't trust this 100% to be honest but we feel it's very good that they started answering emails and giving us information.

Let's hope that whatever legal situation they have behind finally gets sorted out and that they can get to work as soon as possible.

Again, we apologize for all the trouble and the delays on this.

Best,

Digital Sun

Physical Rewards: Quick update on situation

Posted by Digital Sun Games (Creator)

Dear Kickstarter backers,

We want to explain the situation with the physical rewards of the Kickstarter campaign. We are sorry about the huge delay in delivering them and want to update you on the reasons behind that.

We have worked with a company that was supposed to be specialized in manufacturing and delivering Kickstarter rewards. It looked liked the fastest, most reliable way to do it. We have already paid a significant amount to them for this service but, for now, we have received nothing in return except delays and blurry excuses. 

Recently, we found out that they are undergoing some internal changes that have affected their ability to provide the service we hired them to do. 

Before we knew that, they made us expect that sending you the rewards was a matter of a small amount of time. Now we don't really now what to think. We are in negotiations with them, giving them two options:

- They can refund the money to us so we can use those funds to work with another company on the rewards.

- They give us a plan, one we can believe, to solve the issue within a reasonable time frame.

Unfortunately we haven't received an answer so far. We'll see.

The company is based in the US but, for now, we prefer not to share their name, trying to give them one last chance to make things right.

We apologize to everybody for the delay, we hate that this happens and will continue to do our best to provide you with the rewards. 

We are incredibly grateful for the support you gave Moonlighter back in the day. Sometimes, these things happen, and we hate it.

We'll update you as soon as there are any news about this.

Moonlighter Friends and Foes Update (v1.9) for all the platforms + Physical Rewards Update

Posted by Digital Sun Games (Creator)

Hello there, Heroes and Merchants!


Moonlighter’s Friends & Foes Update is here just in time for Valentine’s Day - 'cause nothing says LOVE like strengthening bonds through monster slaying.


    Someone smart said that a true friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “Let’s slay some monsters together!”. And even though our freshly introduced 9 familiars cannot really talk - they are more than happy to aid you during the most dangerous endeavors. To counterbalance that, though, we’ve also added brand new ferocious minibosses- so we’re hoping that you and your new companions are getting on well with each other, you’re gonna need all the help you can get! On top of that, we’ve added plenty of other features and fixes - find a Feature Overview video and the full list of changes below!


NEW FEATURES AND MAJOR CHANGES

Companions

We have developed 9 new familiars. To get them, you need to kill a particular enemy type 10 times. Then, a special Egg will appear! After 3 days, the egg will hatch inside your farm - and your new friend is going to be ready for action! Each familiar has different mechanics. They can damage enemies, restore your life, get items for you, act as an additional chest and more
 

Minibosses

We have added 8 minibosses! They will appear as guardians of the dungeons, securing gateways leading to deeper rooms. They will emerge at the end of the first and second floor in each dungeon.
 

Zenon’s Campfire

From now on, when you visit the dungeons at night, Zenon will be there, sitting by his campfire, ready to tell you some stories of old, about Rynoka and Moonlighter’s world. Those tales will be unlocked with the game’s progression.
 

Tomo Stories

We've modified and added more lines for Tomo. They should explain her relationship with Will better, shedding some light on their mutual past.
 

Banker Information

We have introduced a lot of special warnings and UI changes to avoid the Banker "stealing" your money. A lot of you forgot to revisit that mustachioed capitalist and were losing the investment.
 

Sorting Items

We've added a sorting method inside the inventory.
 

Get the Broom!

We’ve added the possibility to get the Broom™ from Le Retailer (if you’ve managed to lose it somehow!). The Broom™ is important for getting some achievements - so we hope you’re gonna like that little feature!
 

Prices Update

We’ve added a new system in the Shop to better inform whenever Item’s price gets updated.
 


MINOR CHANGES AND FIXES

General Fixes:

  • Improved item "picking-up" mechanic. Items should no longer "fly away" from Will
     
  • Damage absorption buff (orange health bar) gained from sleeping in the upgraded bed was increased in the New game+
     
  • Fixed issue where some weapons could not be enchanted beyond the first upgrade
     
  •  (Steam Only) - Supporter Bow no longer can be enchanted over and over
     
  • Fixed issue where Wishlist could display wrong information about ingredients when an item was added to it at the Witch
     
  • Fixed issue with ingredients for weapon enchanting
     
  • Fixed minor issue with Hawker item prices
     
  • Fixed minor UI issues at the Witch and Wishlist
     
  • Fixed minor localization issues

Dungeon Fixes:

  • Desert dungeon pillars should no longer lock the player in the dungeon room
     
  • Hermit Slime no longer can mix up corrupted dungeon items in the character's inventory
     
  • An issue where Bard Puppet could become invincible (flying golem from the Desert Dungeon) is now finally fixed
     
  • Character no longer gets stuck when opening a chest when the Wanderer (green monster) is about to destroy it
     
  • Golem Dungeon Boss' hand slam attack should now follow the character properly
     
  • Fixed issue where 5th Dungeon Boss did not receive damage from arrows during one animation
     
  • Fixed Forest Dungeon Boss' leap attack damage

Shop Fixes:

  • Fixed issue where Will could get stuck in the shop not able to open counters, sleep or exit through the door

Important notice: we've worked hard to make this Update available simultaneously for all the platforms (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC etc.).

However, it may be available during different hours for various platforms. So don't panic if you notice this update on PC but not on your console at the same time! All versions should be synchronized later today. 
 


Of course, that's not our last word! We're working on more content and we're going to announce it as soon as we're ready!
 

We are aware about our delay with the physical rewards, sorry for that. Nowadays we have almost all the rewards prepared to be sent, we are only waiting to receive the art books. Being a global shipment is proving more complexity than we expected, we are making sure everything arrives in perfect conditions.

We will let you know when we have all the rewards ready and send them to you. Thanks for your patience :) 

All the keys distributed and quick update!

Hi everyone!

Finally, all the keys have been distributed (YAY)! We had some difficulties because of the region filter, but now everyone should be able to play the game, and the most important thing, to enjoy it (at least, we hope so!). If you don't have your key yet, we are going to remind you what's probably going on with a quick Q&A:

  • I didn't receive any email, where is my key? Your key will be always located on backerkit.com. You have to login and navigate into Digital Downloads. You have all your codes and stuff there. :)
  • Even looking at backerkit.com, my key is not there. Why? You probably did your payment, that's true, but some of you maybe used a different mail for the payment that doesn't match with the Kickstarter email. In some cases we managed to do the match manually thanks to the full name, but sometimes even the full name is not the same. If it is your case and you have two different emails (one for kickstarter, and another one the one you used for the paypal payment), please, contact us, give us details about the transaction, and we will match it. :)
  • So, everything is done, what now? There is still a lot of things to do (fortunately), and we will keep you updated. 
  • Do you remember the Roadmap we planned? We already updated Steam version with the Adventure Update, but soon other platforms will be updated. And well, familiar are looking so good... ;) 
  • What about physical rewards? In production and soon distributed! :)

Anyway, we will update you when more information (and more precise information) can be given.

Thank you so much for your patience, and apologies to everyone for the delay. We have tried to do our best given the situation, and we finally managed to do it. :)
