PS1/SEGA Saturn Inspired 3D Platformer “Lunistice” Lands On Switch September 2nd

Before you buy, a little disclaimer – this game was created as part of a self-imposed challenge to create a commercially viable game in just 30 days.
… Which didn’t quite work out and it’s now more like 30 days (+ a year), well! It turns out that 30 days is actually very little time to create a game that’s not only commercially viable, but also fun – especially when everything has to be developed in the developer’s spare time!

The goal was always to create a fun game in the end, with polished gameplay, but – you know – still don’t expect a ton of playtime!

But what is Lunistic…wait…wasn’t it called “Eversleep” before? 🤔🤔🤔

It’s a good question ! Lunistice is a 3D platformer created with simple but fun gameplay and a nice art style inspired by PS1/SEGA Saturn. Play as Hana the Tanuki, jump and fight in her dreams! What secrets await him on the moon – his final destination? Lunistice features a retro look heavily inspired by early 90s 3D graphics with bouncy enemies and a fluffy heroine.

How Lunistice was born! Also, you didn’t answer my last question and that first sentence was even aq…

Good! So you’ve come this far in the text. We haven’t lost you, thank you! Lunistice was originally developed within 30 Days as a challenge for A Grumpy Fox (which again was just “slightly” outdone by the developer, video games are hard). For the sake of transparency: he also works for the game’s publisher, Deck13. Together we came up with the idea to provide as much data as possible about the development and release of the game: to support future game developers and give interested gamers insight into the development and release process. This means that we publish sales figures, discount strategies and valuable development and marketing information via Twitter and Medium. If you want to support this approach and experiment, feel free to buy the game.
