Never heard of Moonlighter? No problem — here’s a brief overview via Digital Sun:
Moonlighter is a Action RPG with rogue-lite elements about Will, an adventurous shopkeeper, that secretly dreams of becoming a hero.
To earn the daily bread, he needs to venture into the dungeons near his town, defeat strange enemies and obtain loot to be sold at his shop.
Wisely managing the gold from those sales is the only way he’ll get strong enough to risk into deeper gates and, maybe, open the sealed one.
Moonlighter has endless randomly generated dungeons, a myriad of cool and expensive items, many weapons, dozens of weird enemies, five incredibly tough bosses and gold… tones of gold!
You start with 100 gold coins. Some cheap equipment.
And a shop.
Moonlighter is currently slated to release for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux sometime in 2017. A price point has not been divulged. Additionally, the developer has revealed that it’s investigating a release for the Switch.
