Big Things Coming in the Moonlighter Roadmap for 2018
Updates and Soundtracks and Switch News, OH MY!
July 5, 2018 — Hello there, Heroes and Merchants! We here at 11 bit studios and Digital Sun believe that a good adventure always requires a little bit of old-fashioned planning and — obviously — a map! A carefully plotted path that will ultimately lead you to your goal. Is there a treasure waiting at the end of the road? Perhaps a princess or a prince? Shining, golden horse armor? You do you, we won’t judge. To aid you in your travels to the dungeons outside of Rynoka, we have prepared something very special for all of our fans, the Moonlighter Development Roadmap for 2018!
Since Moonlighter’s release, the feedback that we have received from fans has been equal parts overwhelming and also amazing! Our fans and community have some crazy good ideas and guess what — we have some as well! And you know what always works best? Cooperation! We’ve collected your feedback and we have incorporated as much of it as possible into our development plan. After many internal discussions, hours of research, and the consumption of non-alcoholic beverages (swear!) — we proudly present to you Moonlighter Development Roadmap 2018!
Excited? So are we! Let’s give you a little bit more information about each milestone from the roadmap (not everything, though – we like to keep some secrets) and this should go without saying, but all the updates you see here are going to be totally free!
- More Stock Update — Our first update will add more than 50 new rooms distributed all over the four dungeons making a total of almost 600 room patterns available! It’s also going to improve the look of armors and enchanted items, plus we plan to add some additional help/tutorials to explain different shop upgrades better.
- Adventure Update — New Game+ lets players start the whole game again with increased difficulty level. This update will also bring brand new Dimensional Weapons and Amulets, powerful equipment based on an unknown and mysterious technology.
- Companion Update — Feeling lonely in the Dungeons? Worry no more! Choose a companion and bring it with you on the adventure ! Each companion will be a little bit different, offering various skill sets and looks. On top of that we’re going to introduce the Custom Game — a set of options that will allow you to to modify certain game parameters to create diverse experiences.
- Trouble Update — Put your skills to the test by battling some brand new mini bosses! We’re not going to tell you anything more about them — because we want those enemies to surprise (and brutally defeat… muah ha ha ha) you during your adventures. Yup, we’re sadistic like that sometimes. We’re also going to add new Item Effects, boosting the game’s variety. This update should arrive sometime around Halloween — so we’re hoping to bring you some spoOOoky stuff, too!
That’s the basics, and as we said before, we don’t want to spoil everything so we can keep you on the edge of your seats while you wait for upcoming content! And yes – we have even MORE updates planned for 2019!
We absolutely love what David Fenn did with Moonlighter’s Official Soundtrack. The feeling of nostalgia, lust for adventure and unending thirst for gold – everything is there! But the best things in the world are those which we can share with others. That’s why, from now on, you can listen to Moonlighter’s OST on Spotify! If you prefer other platforms, it’s also available on Bandcamp, where you can also buy it to support David and his awesome creativity!
MEET DIGITAL SUN GAMES
Breaking news; games are not creating themselves! At least not yet. There are always people behind your favorite titles and even though we’re a bunch of super secret ninjas working from València (focused on delivering a quality game to your hands), we would like to show you our faces from time to time. Along with the folks from 11 bit studios, we’ve created a short dev diary that can give you a sneak peek on how we work. Our studios are connected like a large family and we invite you to become part of this family as well!
Last but not least, YES the Switch version of Moonlighter is still coming this year! Nothing has changed here. If there is anything new to announce — we are going to announce it ASAP on our channels (see the list above? Now might be a good time to give us a like/follow) — so stay tuned!
