Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is a mythology-based action-RPG that follows the exploits of Aluna, the warrior daughter of a Spanish conquistador and South American nature goddess Pachamama.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards stars comic book creator and actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, The Shield) as Incan demigod Aluna.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards follows the exploits of Aluna, the warrior daughter of a Spanish conquistador and South American nature goddess Pachamama. Raised in early 16th century Spain, Aluna escaped to the New World only to realize it was her true homeland. Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards sets our heroine on a quest through Inca mythology as she strives to restore the amulet her goddess mother entrusted to her... and fulfill her true destiny.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards combines the deep action-RPG mechanics of Diablo with the revisionist mythology of God of War. Based around Inca lore, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards features mythological gods, beasts, and tales that formed the backbone of 16th century Colombian culture. Venture from the Sanctuary seaside cliffs through the massive jungles of the New World, all the way to Nagaric’s Temple in the Volcanic Canyons in this epic historical adventure.

Created stars comic book creator and actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, The Shield) and Antonio Hernandez in response to the underrepresentation of both latino and female superheroes in comics, Aluna went on to become a cult hit and is currently starring in the ongoing comic book saga, The World of Aluna, written by Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Origins scribes Ryan Galletta, Dooma Wendschuch, and Corey May. Aluna further made a name for herself in video games after becoming a playable character in S2 Games’ popular MOBA Heroes of Newerth, where she was played by Paula Garces herself.

“Creating Aluna has been a joy, as Latin characters and women have historically been woefully underrepresented in pop culture,” said Aluna creator and actress Paula Garces. “It was a thrill bringing her to life on the page and in Heroes of Newerth, but giving her a starring role in an action-RPG is an all new opportunity to let everyone - not just me - embody Aluna and understand the power that comes with her unique heritage. She’s the badass Latina heroine I never had growing up!”

Aluna has been a passion project for Paula and I for years, as we’ve long struggled with the poor representation of Latin American people in our culture,” said Digiart Interactive founder Antonio Hernandez. “Video games are among the most widely shared forms of entertainment available today, and being able to share our heritage with a wider audience is exciting beyond words. We can’t wait for people to get their hands on Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards on May 26th.

Key Features:

  • Explore a vast land filled with dense jungles, majestic beaches, and towering cliffs.
  • Choose from a vast array of weapons based on historical weapons from the Old World (South America) and New World (Spanish Empire).
  • Customize Aluna’s fighting style by unlocking powerful magical abilities across 3 schools of magic.
  • Collect, craft, and trade hundreds of unique items and loot.
  • Defeat mythological boss creatures inspired by South American lore.
  • Aluna is voiced by actress/producer/creator Paula Garces.
  • Based on the popular comic book series "The World of Aluna" by the writers of Assassins Creed and Batman: Arkham Origins.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC on May 26, 2021 for $19.99, followed by PS4 and Xbox One at a later time.
