It’s been a busy time for shopkeepers in the world of Moonlighter. The procedural dungeon crawler come management simulator only just set out to make adventurers pay in May of 2018. Now, developer Digital Sun is about to drop a whole host of new content and it’s completely free.
Published by 11 Bit Studios, this indie success story follows the adventure of Will as he runs the family business. Unfortunately for players, this quaint little shop doesn’t stock itself. Entrepreneurial types get to spend their evenings crawling through a varied set of dungeons. A whole host of different realms, challenging creature encounters, and deep combat mechanics combine the two sides of this coin to make this one of the most interesting indie’s to launch in 2018.
The new content coming to Moonlighter is pretty extensive and you can find the full list in Digital Sun’s own words below.
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 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!
To top it all off, Moonlighter’s amazing soundtrack is available on Spotify for when you’re busy with real life grind and did we mention that Moonlighter is coming to Nintendo Switch? With so much new in Moonlighter you might want to nab a copy from your local game shopkeep. For the full stock list, check out the official website.
