Description[edit | edit source]
Moonlighter is a rogue-lite game about Will, a shopkeeper that dreams of becoming a hero.
To make a living, he needs to venture into the dungeons near his town, defeat strange enemies and loot items he can sell at his shop. Managing the gold from those sales wisely is the only way he’ll get strong enough to open the last dungeon.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Moonlighter has a dual nature. At its core, it is an action rogue-lite: focused on combat, looting and exploring procedurally generated dungeons. Though, in order to get stronger and become hero, the player will need gold, a lot of gold. To get it, he will need to sell the items he finds on the dungeons and wisely invest the money on shop upgrades, new equipment, etc.
The gameplay of Moonlighter, unlike other roguelike games, focuses on the character progression, creating a longer, more strategic gameplay focused on exploration, management and combat.
Story[edit | edit source]
The Dungeons, that's how there were called by the people who approached to burgle them.
Rynoka was the name given to the village that germinated around them.
Two types of people founded Rynoka: heroes and merchants. The former looked for fame: the latter looked for gold.
