I picked out the wordless point-and-click adventure LUNA The Shadow Dust as one of my highlights of EGX Rezzed, and now the demo I played is available to the public (link to download for PC and for Mac).
It was great to have a chance to play the demo again away from the noise and distractions of the show floor. LUNA feels wonderfully dream-like, and I love the Ghibli-inspired artwork. It’s a stunning game. The puzzles are fun and clever, too, and the orchestral music is simply wonderful. Screenshots below:
The demo is only about 20 minutes long, so it’s only a brief taster – and I can’t wait to play the finished thing. My only real criticism at this point is that it would be useful to be able to select both rabbit boy and his furry companion at the same time, or at least to be able to switch between them while one is performing an action. Right now, to exit a room for example, you have to select one character, wait for them to finish walking, then select the other and wait for them to do the same. A keyboard shortcut to switch between the two would be helpful, too.
This is just a minor gripe though – otherwise LUNA The Shadow Dust is looking very promising indeed. No firm release date yet, just ‘summer 2019’ for PC and Mac.
