Rogue-like RPG Moonlighter out on PS4 and Switch

Manage a shop during the day and raid dungeons at night. What else is there to life? 

Polish indie developers at 11 bit Studios, together with Digital Sun and UK based publishers from Merge Games, announced today the release of the retail version of their highly praised action RPG with rogue-like elements game Moonligher for Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch consoles.

Moonlighter tells the story of Will, a humble shopkeeper in the town of Rynoka that only wants his business to grow and keep his customers happy. In order to do that, he goes out every night and engages in fantastic adventures through different dungeons to obtain new and more valuable artifacts, weapons and oddities to add to his stock.

Conduct business and pile up profit during the day and prepare to get into dangerous expeditions at night. Uncover new trasures to sell during the next day and see how your shop grows or stagnates. Different realms, dimensions and fantastic environments await players who decide to help Will.

For more detailed information about Moonlighter on PC, you can check our review here. “With its “just one more run” gameplay loop, Moonlighter is a challenging dungeon crawler that hits the spot. Head to your village shop/digital storefront of choice and you’re unlikely to feel buyer’s remorse from this rogue-lite treasure.”, wrote James Sheppard. Either way, the game’s main features were listed in today’s press release:

  • Shopkeeping! Put items on sale, set their price carefully, manage gold reserves, recruit assistants and upgrade the shop. Be careful though— some shady individuals may want to steal your precious wares!
  • Fighting with style! Masterful control of your weapons, critical timing, careful positioning, and an understanding of your enemies and environment are crucial to your survival. How you battle your enemies is up to you.
  • Meeting villagers! Get to know your neighbours as you restore the prosperity of this small commercial hamlet. Help establish new businesses and watch them grow in the idyllic community of Rynoka.
  • Crafting, enchanting, and looting! Interact with the villagers to craft new armour and weapons, and enchant existing equipment. Also, collect valuable items from exotic civilizations!
