Wordless story driven point & click adventure puzzle game
Traditional frame by frame character animation
12 frames per second, 3 layers per frame. Over 250 animations and 20 minutes of cinematics. A nostalgic and time-consuming process - but really worth the challenge for a small indie team of four.
Single player mode with dual character control
Solve puzzles from different perspectives. Discover a story of true courage with two playable characters drawn together through an inseparable bond.
Think outside of the box
Spark your imagination and solve a wide variety of puzzles, presented in gorgeous hand-drawn environments. Puzzles work standalone, requiring no 'hidden items' or player backtracking.
LESS reading, MORE cinematics
We replaced a dialogue system with a series of beautifully hand-animated cinematics telling a mysterious story.
Engaging Original Soundtrack
Our composer created an original soundtrack, designed to immerse the player in the emotional highs and lows of the story, kindling goose-bumps along the journey.

Press & Reviews
“Chiaroscuro is one of my favourite words, so what luck that upcoming point and click adventure game Luna The Shadow Dust has such a focus on light and shadows, giving me a tangential excuse to use it.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun
“The hand-drawn art is simply superb.”
A Most Agreeable Pastime
“Its staggering art, complemented by its loftily luminescent music”
“ The amazing, hand-drawn artwork — inefficiently, but so remarkably gliding and flowing, almost hypnotic.”
“ There are few games as engrossing as well-made point &click puzzle adventures—nothing catches my eye quite like the intersection of intellectual challenge and stellar artwork .”
