Hand-Animated Puzzle Adventure LUNA The Shadow Dust Launches On Switch This Week

Nintendo

Launching later this week on Nintendo Switch is LUNA The Shadow Dust, a point-and-click puzzle adventure from Lantern Studio.

The game is brought to life by some lovely looking hand-animated cinematics, telling its story through its visuals and soundtrack alone. It tells the tale of two playable companions who are drawn together, and has players solving puzzles and experiencing “a magical journey”. Here’s a feature list and some beautiful screenshots:

Features:
A wordless game that breaks through the language and culture barrier
– The perfect family game that anyone can enjoy with even young children
– Hand-drawn animation and innovative design on the puzzle and gaming experience
– 2 playable characters, a boy Üri and his lovely companion Layh, step into a moving picture-book

The game’s been received well throughout development and since its release on Steam last year, winning an award for its art at Indieplay Shanghai back in 2016 and receiving an honourable mention at this year’s Independent Games Festival.

The game launches on Switch on 22nd October and will be available for $19.99. Feel free to share your thoughts on this one in the comments below.
