So I came across this beauty on the Twitterz this morning and was immediately interested.
Based on current funding, it looks like the developer Digital Sun Games will smash their target crowd funding goal (which is in no way surprising considering the games premium look and apparent depth). So if you want to grab this game for less than $20, I recommend a visit to their Kickstarter page.
This game cannot come out soon enough. Below are some developer descriptions.
Moonlighter is a action RPG game with rogue-lite elements about Will, an adventurous shopkeeper, that secretly dreams of becoming a hero.
To earn the daily bread, he needs to venture into the dungeons near his town, defeat strange enemies and obtain loot to be sold at his shop.
Wisely managing the gold from those sales is the only way he’ll get strong enough to risk into deeper gates and, maybe, open the sealed one.
Moonlighter has endless randomly generated dungeons, a myriad of cool and expensive items, many weapons, dozens of weird enemies, five incredibly tough bosses and gold… tones of gold!
You start with 100 gold coins. Some cheap equipment.
And a shop.
The developers cite their main inspirations as Rogue Legacy, The Binding of Isaac, The Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap, Studio Ghibli and Recettear.
