Today, publisher Humble Games and developer Black Mermaid revealed that 2D Platform Slasher Moonscars will launch on September 27, 2022 on PC via the Humble Store and Steam, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

 

The new launch date reveal trailer helps set the stage for the dark and foreboding world that players will  get to experience in Moonscars as lead protagonist Grey Irma, as well as more thrilling combat sequences and boss reveals. Additional assets for the game can be downloaded here.

 

In Moonscars, every death is a lesson learnt—and as you overcome each challenge, new truths will be revealed. As the fierce clayborne warrior Grey Irma, you must push your combat skills to the limit and master new abilities to progress through an unforgiving nonlinear 2D world. Facing off against the relentless, destructive darkness and cruel mistress the Moon, your quest is to find the Sculptor and unravel the mystery of your existence.

  • Death shapes you – Before you rise, you first must fall. Mold yourself into a master warrior through a cycle of trial and triumph.

  • A grimly gorgeous world – Explore the shadows and secrets concealed in the moonlight of a painterly nonlinear 2D realm marred by desperation and despair.

  • Test your resolve – Sharpen your skills and reflexes in challenging, action-packed combat. Slash and parry with your sword, wield unique special weapons, and command powerful Witchery.

  • The Moon hungers – Unearth a strange, dark fantasy tale filled with twists and intricate worldbuilding. Seek the truth of your creation and be rewarded.

  • Clay, bone, and ichor – Bear witness to tales and memories of betrayal, suffering, and revenge as Grey Irma and her fellow beings of flesh and clay seek truth and purpose.
