LUNA The Shadow Dust looks like an adventure game not to be missed

Posted by , | Views: 3,508

LUNA The Shadow Dust from Lantern Studio and Application Systems Heidelberg has a new trailer and it really has me wanting to see more as it looks beautiful.

It's a fully "hand-animated" point and click adventure game, one that will feature "wordless storytelling" with cinematic scenes taking place to tell parts of the story rather than reading dialogue. Certainly sounds good and I'm interested to see their puzzle system, which they claim won't require any backtracking or hidden items.

I'm not exactly sure when the Linux version will be released for this one, as the situation is a little unclear right now. It is coming and it is confirmed by the publisher, however when I spoke to them previously they said the Linux version would be released later.

Application Systems Heidelberg just recently sent out a press email containing a preview version which goes public on Friday (but it's not under any embargo, as they said links could already be included in articles) but this was only for "PC" (Windows) and Mac. The email did state again the game will be release for Linux though and the Steam page does already list Linux system requirements. I'm waiting to hear back from Application Systems Heidelberg to see if we can get this cleared up a bit.

You can wishlist and follow it on Steam for the eventual Linux release.

Looks nice. I hope they'll make a release in DRM-free stores as well.
