Lunark is a retro-style sci-fi adventure Inspired by 2D classics from the 1980s and '90s such as Prince of Persia, Flashback, and Out of this World.

A pulp adventure set in the midst of a rebellion against a totalitarian regime. Embark on a classic-style sci-fi adventure as you run, jump, roll and shoot your way through gorgeous and mysterious locations!

Set in a far future where Earth's moon has been transformed into a vessel for humanity's survival and a totalitarian regime reigns supreme, Lunark puts players in control of Leo, a courier with unique abilities and a mysterious past.

As he gets unwittingly caught up in the rebellion against Lunark's iron fist, Leo must fight his way out of one life-threatening situation after another as he navigates impressively animated pixel-art environments ranging from a dystopian megalopolis to eerie caves to an alien forest.

Using their reflexes and their wits, players must overcome traps, solve puzzles, earn upgrades, and battle enemy droids, and when they aren't fighting for survival, they'll find themselves interacting with a cast of colorful characters who will put Leo's allegiances to the test.

Key Features:

  • Experience a modern 2D cinematic platformer, featuring precision gameplay and stunning animation
  • Immerse yourself in a compelling sci-fi story of survival, revolution, and mystery
  • Intuitive but versatile controls: Run, jump, hang, climb, roll, and shoot your way to freedom!
  • Explore glorious pixel-art environments, including mysterious alien ruins, a flying penitentiary, a high-tech megalopolis, and an alien forest
  • Solve puzzles, overcome traps, and interact with a variety of characters
  • Discover hidden upgrades to expand your health and weapon capabilities
  • Yes, you can pet the dog

In addition to the digital versions of Lunark launching on March 30, a Mac version is coming soon to Steam as well, and physical versions for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 are in the works from Limited Run Games in both standard and collector's editions; details on the contents and preorder window will be announced in the near future.
