Are you craving more anime-inspired pixel RPG games? Look no further than LunarLux, a solo dev project (and first original title) from CosmicNobab Games! Published by Freedom Games, LunarLux was released on September 25th, 2023, with massive praise and hit #1 on New and Trending on Steam! Check out the official launch trailer for LunarLux below.
Set in the year 30xx, LunarLux is an epic tale that takes place solely on the moon. Humanity has moved on from their earth-like planet Terra (due to destruction from a comet) and made their way to Luna, the planet orbiting Terra. Centuries later, Lunar is flourishing with technology and the genius humans behind the wonderful tech.
Unfortunately, the same comet that rained destruction down on Terra is now on a warpath to destroy Luna too! Take control of Lunar Warrior Bella and guide her through her journey on Lunar to find a solution to save the moon, fight the mysterious Murks, and destroy the comet, before it’s too late.
While traversing the moon, you will be accompanied by your robot sidekick, Tetra! Tetra is able to assist Bella during battle and missions, most notably by diving into malfunctioning networks found along your journey. The game then suddenly transitions into a retro 8-bit game, filled with minigames to solve to repair the network.
The world of Luna is filled with nearly everything being interactable. Ranging from local rocks to dogs to pet (pet them 20 times for a surprise!), along with plenty of Easter eggs to dig up. After messing around with rocks, there are plenty of delightful characters to befriend, so don’t spend all of your time talking with the rocks!
Lastly, let’s talk about combat in LunarLux. It’s a hybrid turn and action-based system with timing being important, not just which attacks you choose. LunarLux has up to 40 Active Skills and 30 Support Skills, each with their own unique mechanics. Now, here is the fun part. After filling up your Lux Meter, Bella can unleash powerful attacks known as Lux Combos, where you can choose any 3 Active Skills to stack together. To go even further beyond, there are recipes to collect that give you specific combinations, creating a Unique Lux Combo!
