“A delightfully addictive gameplay loop of dungeon crawling and shopkeeping. The profiteering capitalism of Stardew Valley blended with the dungeons of Binding of Isaac. What's not to love?”

Moonlighter - Update 1.6 | Time is Money



Hello there, Merchants and Heroes!

We're bringing you a brand new patch (1.6) that we've called Time is Money - 'cause it is mostly focused on Shop and Village features. On top of that - we have also fixed a lot of other stuff so the overall experience should be even more enjoyable for everyone!

- - - MAJOR CHANGES - - -
  1. New Items' Popularity System!
    We've received a lot of feedback about game's economy and decided to adjust that. This is one of the biggest changes introduced to our game so far - 'cause it really alters the general feeling of Moonlighter's economy. Popularity system now highly affects when people decide buy or don't buy items. Better be prepared to actively swap those items so your shop can prosper! Also, from now on, Rich and Tourist type of customers can buy from any place, not only the crystal showcases. We've also modified the crystal showcases themselves: every item you put there is going to have an increased popularity level and it's going to be protected from those pesky thieves!
  2. Last used price is now saved
    Ok, we admit: that was kind of annoying. Every time you were putting a price for a new item - it always went back to zero until you sold it. This was also frustrating with thieves, because you could forget the price you used. Now, if you don't know the good price, the system will remember the last price you've set. Yay!
  3. Improved Horde Room
    We have improved the animations for this room and it works slightly different. Now, for every "round" inside the Horde Room you will have to select: open the chest or keep fighting? So you won't be able to open all the chests anymore. We believe it adds a little bit more risk and spices up the experience.
  4. Buying multiple Potions
    A highly requested feature, indeed! Now you can buy up to 99 potions at the same time from the Witch!

Moonlighter | Development Roadmap 2018 Update



Hello there, Heroes and Merchants!

We believe that a good adventure always requires a little bit of old-fashioned planning and - obviously - a map! A map that will lead you to your goal. Is there a treasure waiting at the end of the road? Perhaps a princess or a prince? A golden armor for your horse? You do you, we won’t judge - but we have prepared something else and very special: Moonlighter Development Roadmap for 2018!

Feedback that we have received from you so far has been - yes, pretty overwhelming - but also: beyond amazing! You guys have some crazy good ideas and guess what - we have some as well! And you know what always works best? Cooperation! So, we’ve collected your feedback and we have incorporated it into our development plan. Therefore, after many internal discussions, hours of research and drinking non-alcoholic beverages - we proudly present you Moonlighter Development Roadmap 2018:


Click here to see the full resolution

Excited? So we share that feeling! Let us give you a little bit more information about each milestone from the Roadmap. Not everything, though - we like to keep some secrets. Oh, and this should go without saying - but all the updates that you see on this Roadmap are going to be totally free! Still waiting for the full confirmation - the Winter DLC is supposed to be paid DLC so we have to be careful with wording.

- - - ROADMAP DETAILS - - -

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 small 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, equipment based on some 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 to modify some 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 - ‘cause we want those enemies to surprise (and brutally defeat) you during your adventures. Yup, we are mean like that sometimes. We are also going to add some new Item Effects - boosting game’s variety. This update should arrive somewhen around Halloween - so we’re hoping to bring you some spoOOoky stuff, too!

That should cover the basics! However, as said before - we don’t want to spoil everything - so we can keep you on the edge of the chair while you wait for upcoming content! And yes - we have more updates planned for 2019!

Breaking news: games are not creating themselves. At least not yet. There are always people behind your favourite titles. And even though we are bunch of super secret ninjas working from València, focused on delivering a quality game to your hands - we would like to show you our faces from time to time. Along with the folks from 11 bit studios we’ve created a short dev diary that can give you a small sneak peek on how we work. Our studios are connected like a large family - and we invite you to become part of this family as well:

- - - OFFICIAL SOUNDTRACK - - -

We absolutely love what David Fenn did with Moonlighter’s Official Soundtrack. The feeling of nostalgia, lust for adventure and unending thirst for gold - everything is there! But the best things in the world are those which we can share with others. That’s why, from now on, you can listen to Moonlighter’s OST on Spotify. And if you prefer other platforms, it is additionaly available on Bandcamp - where you can also buy it to support David and boost his awesome creativity!



- - - FOLLOW US - - -
We are always waiting for your feedback. To share some ideas and to be up to date with all the things that are happening in our studio(s), be sure to follow our channels:
- - - SWITCH VERSION - - -
Last but not least: yes, Switch version of Moonlighter is still coming this year, nothing has changed here. If there is anything new to announce - we are going to announce it ASAP on our channels (see the list above? Now it’s a good time to give us a like/follow us) - so stay tuned!

About This Game



During a long-passed archaeological excavation, a set of Gates were discovered. People quickly realized that these ancient passages lead to different realms and dimensions – providing brave and reckless adventurers with treasures beyond measure. Rynoka, a small commercial village, was founded near the excavation site providing refuge and a place for adventurers to sell their hard-earned riches.

Moonlighter is an Action RPG with rogue-lite elements following the everyday routines of Will, an adventurous shopkeeper that dreams of becoming a hero.

Features:



While conducting your business in Rynoka village, you can put items on sale, set their price carefully, manage gold reserves, recruit assistants and upgrade the shop. Be careful though – some shady individuals may want to steal your precious wares!


Defeat various enemies and bosses, and revel in challenging and deep combat mechanics. Masterful control of your weapons, critical timing, careful positioning, and an understanding of your enemies and environment are crucial to your survival. How you battle your enemies is up to you.


Get to know your neighbors as you restore the prosperity of this small commercial hamlet. Help establish new businesses and watch them grow in the idyllic community of Rynoka.


Understanding the crafting and enchanting system is essential for your progression. Interact with the villagers to craft new armor and weapons, and enchant existing equipment. This creates a great deal of flexibility and spices up the way equipment is used.


Access strange worlds through otherworldly gates and collect valuable items from exotic civilizations: resources, weapons, armors and peculiar artifacts. Hoarding everything won't be possible - use the unique inventory system wisely to take the most profitable loot with you.


Gates lead to different worlds. Each run is unique and forces you to make smart and calculated decisions. You never know what you will encounter next – that’s why you must be prepared for everything.
