A Bunch of New Weapons! Also cool events :D

Posted by Digital Sun Games (Creator)


It's been some time since the last update, and we've been super busy! At this update we'll cover the following topics:  

  • Awesome events we visited recently!  
  • Devlog: Polishing + adding new content into the game!  
  • Bonus: A sample of new weapons!


So, first things first, we've been showing Moonlighter during two major events lately.

The first one was Gamescom in Cologne (Europe). It was a super long event (6 days!) and a lot of people discovered the game and enjoyed it in our booth! Yay! :)

If you are curious about the whole experience, you can feel as you were there with us - by watching Travelogues prepared by our friends at 11 bit studios:


Only some days later we travelled to Seattle (USA) to be part of another amazing event: PAX West 2017! It was a blast and we met a lot of other game developers presenting a lot of incredible projects.

And, of course, there's a Travelogue covering the event:


During both events we were - of course - with the guys from 11 bit studios and their game Frostpunk, but also with another game that is going to be published by them: Children of Morta.

If you like pixel art dungeon crawlers you have to check it out! You can watch their announcement trailer [here].

Thank you all for coming to play and see you soon! :D


About the development, we're working hard to finish the game with the quality level we want.

In terms of content it is almost finished. Yay! BUT we still need to do a lot of polishing, bug smashing, language localisation... Everything is going on at the same time, more or less, so the office is kind of a mess right now. :D

As you know, we don't want to share a lot of info about the lore of the game or the nature and theme of each of the dungeons. That's why it is difficult to show you all the cool graphical advances.

Anyway, we want to show you something, so here you have it: a sample of the weapons you will be able to wield in the game!

      @William thanks for your interest :) We're working with professional companies for the final game.

      The updates, in the other side, are written directly by us (we're from Spain and Poland), so you can expect some minor mistakes -it's not our mother tongue. Sorry!

      Perhaps Digital Sun could enlist a few native speaking backers of target languages to help proof or comment on the localized scripts prior to release. E.g. "localisation" in Update #27 is the British spelling.
