Moonlighter is a game created by Digital Sun Games. It was released on May 29, 2018.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Moonlighter is a rogue-like game about Will, a shopkeeper that has dreams of becoming a hero.

To make a living, Will needs to venture into the dungeons near his town, defeat strange enemies, and obtain items he can sell in his shop. Managing the gold from those sales wisely is the only way he’ll become strong enough to open the final dungeon.

Moonlighter has procedurally generated dungeons, extremely hard bosses, many unique items, mountains of gold, many silly and interesting enemies, and only one shop at the center of it all.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Moonlighter has a dual nature. At its core, it is an action rogue-like focused on combat, looting, and exploring procedurally generated dungeons. However, in order to get stronger and become a hero, the player will need gold: a lot of gold. To obtain it, they will need to sell the items they find in the dungeons and wisely invest their savings in shop upgrades, new equipment, town additions in order to progress.

The gameplay of Moonlighter, unlike other rogue-like games, focuses on the character progression, thus creating a longer, more strategic gameplay focused on exploration, management, and combat.

Narrative[edit | edit source]

In a distant world... strange ruins appeared: mazes full of strange items and enemies from other worlds.

The Dungeons were given their name by the people who attempted to burgle them.

Rynoka was the name given to the village that germinated around them as a result of the looting.

Two types of people founded Rynoka: heroes and merchants. The former focused on fame, the latter looking for gold.

Now, 70 years after its inception, Dungeons are not as lucrative as they used to be and life is harder than ever, especially for the oldest shop in Rynoka, Moonlighter, and its youngest owner, Will.
