An Early Look at upcoming game, LUNA: The Shadow Dust

The demo for this amazing game releases officially Friday, April 26th, but if you don’t want to wait, a link will be provided before images, trailer and press info. Let me state ahead, this project is incredible. This small demo will make you crave for more. The art is mesmerizing, the music quality and what seem like simple puzzles at first that can be solved by trial and error clicking are more complicated and need attention to detail and processing thought.  I also can promise you the game places you will not see coming and is bigger than one imagine.



LUNA The Shadow Dust is a fully hand-animated Point&Click puzzle adventure, brought to life through wordless storytelling, beautiful cinematics and a breathtaking original soundtrack.


  • Traditional frame-by-frame character animation.
  • Single-player gameplay with dual character control.
  • Wide variety of puzzles designed to spark your imagination.
  • A moving story told through beautifully hand-animated cinematics.
  • Original musical soundtrack worthy of cinema.
