The Between Dimensions DLC for Moonlighter is out now, over 1 million players

Posted by , | Views: 2,958

Moonlighter, the curious mix of gameplay that has you be both a shopkeeper and a dungeon crawling adventurer has a new DLC out named Between Dimensions.

After a tumultuous time, the village of Rynoka was once again at peace thanks to the brave adventures of the hero-merchant, Will. Sadly, the serenity was short-lived as an unknown cryptic Portal has strangely appeared out of nowhere. Does it bring with it a new threat? Yeah, it probably does. But Will’s merchant sense tells him it could also mean something else… profit! Stepping into the unknown is even more tempting if you think about all the new precious loot that awaits only the bravest of explorers.

Before we get into that any more though, just to mention that the game surpassed 500K sales earlier this year. However, today, the developer Digital Sun posted on Twitter about it now being over 1 million! Really good to see some games doing so well in such a tough and crowded market.

Back into the Between Dimensions DLC, it includes some really fun sounding bits:

  • A brand-new Interdimensional Dungeon (and a chance for it to appear as a Corrupted Dungeon in the original dungeons)
  • 10 original enemies and 5 minibosses
  • Full set of weapons with a new short sword, big sword, bow, gloves, and spear
  • Set of armor with a new helmet, chest, and boots
  • Trick Weapons – 10 unique weapons – both powerful… and punishing!
  • New Rings – which are boosting Will’s passive abilities
  • New Shop upgrade – allowing Will to showcase his new Interdimensional Items
  • New Customers asking to trade and an unfamiliar NPC: The Trader
  • Additional story and lore

That's not all though, everyone gets a little update free too. There's now thieves that can invade your shop, a new client "the indecisive customer" and an apparently "bothersome" bird that may flap around and annoy you customers that you need to deal with. Nice to see some free stuff make it in addition to paid content.

After trying out the game myself today with the update, it seems the previous keyboard input issues I had have been solved. It properly registered holding down a key, instead of flickering constantly so that's great too. Although, it does feel way better with a gamepad.

I've yet to play the DLC (I have a key request in), but I can still recommend the base game as it's charming.

You can hop on over to Humble Store, GOG and Steam for a copy. Although, it seems GOG doesn't have a Linux build of the DLC just yet.

I play the base game at the moment. Got it from the Humblebundle Monthly.
After the first few hours I am a bit disappointed. The artwork and music is wonderful but the shop keeper part is pretty basic and the fighting is too much repetition.
I will not buy the dlc, that's clear.
As my playtime is pretty limited these days, I am thinking of not finishing the game. I hate to do that and the game is also pretty short (~15h).

I had the opposite experience really. I enjoyed the mix of elements it provided, even if some of the shop stuff was a little simple (new free additions to that now though, as the article states).

Also, 15 hours is short? Since when
