Description

Moon Hunters is a 1 to 4 player co-operative personality test RPG! Play as a hero over 5 days, building your legend in an ancient Mesopotamian-inspired world that's different every time. Figure out what's happened to the missing moon goddess, show your personality and create a reputation that becomes your legend.

History

Moon Hunters was first announced via the Square Enix Collective in January 2014. In August 2014, Kitfox launched a $45,000 Moon Hunters Kickstarter that would go on to earn $178,000, enabling them to grow the game to include online multiplayer and PlayStation platforms. They have also received help from the Canadian Media Fund's experimental stream.

Features

  • Build your mythology: your actions and decisions grow into your reputation, changing how the world reacts to and remembers you.
  • A mystical journey: Different locations and landmarks each have their own potential to help or hinder adventurers.
  • Online or local co-op: Playing alone is fine, but team up with others to overcome the hardest challenges!
  • Great for parties: Each playthrough is less than an hour, allowing people to play together in one sitting.
  • Different every time: With a randomly generated world and adventure levels, with different upgrades at each vendor, there's always something new to find.
