We often see trailers and watch Digital Foundry videos comparing a game’s performance across multiple platforms. For its upcoming release, the team behind Moonlighter has already done all the work. They painstakingly show you the hair rendering, water simulation, and physics performance across all platforms.
And it’s all the same.
The trailer is a good-natured look at these comparisons. No matter your platform of choice, the pixelated game will look and run the same. The developers end the video with the reasoning, “Because we love you all the same”. It’s a fun trailer, and we hope that sense of humor shows up in the game.
Moonlighter is a rogue-lite, action RPG about a shop owner who spends his nights passing through mystical gates to fight monsters and find sweet loot. The daytime is spent helping customers buy the merchandise he acquires. His true dream is to be a hero, but having your own business is not a bad career if that doesn’t work.
Moonlighter will release on May 29th.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
