'Moons Of Darsalon' Is A Retro Action/Platformer Coming To PC In April, Playable Demo Available - Screens & Trailer

Moons Of Darsalon is a "save-them-all" action/platformer featuring advanced physics combined with an unique retro feel.

Teams of darsanauts got lost during their mining missions on the different moons of the planet Darsalon.

Moons Of Darsalon puts the players in the role of a brave rescuing hero with the mission of saving countless teams of darsanauts that got lost mining on the moons of the planet Darsalon. Once you find them, you will have to lead them to the closest base station. The darsanauts will use their AI to follow you and obey your commands, so on your way to the base, you will have to protect them from diverse dangers and enemies.  

You need to complete several rescue missions in which you will have to lead them to the closest base station. They will use their own AI to follow you and to obey your commands. On your way to the base you will have to protect them from dangers and enemies using your laser gun, jet pack, pilot ground and air vehicles, and enjoy the advanced physics engine while they destroy terrain and even make new paths with the ground maker!

 After 8 years of long waiting, players will finally be able to enroll the Darsanauts Rescue Missions in challenging missions leading their colleagues to the closest base station.

Interested fans can check out a playable PC demo on Steam.

Key Features:

  • Fast-paced laser gun shooting action against dangerous alien creatures.

  • Darsanauts implement advanced platforming AI including dynamic terrain detection, jump force calculation, light sensitivity, inter-NPC communication.
