LUNA The Shadow Dust - Description
Behind the veil of reality, lies an enchanted world. When the world lost its balance, it fell upon a boy to take on an unexpected journey. Until the moon rises again, the order of the world will not be restored. One can not go back in time to correct his mistake. Whatever happened is irreversible… or is it? Together with our main character and his mystery friend, players will experience an unique adventure that requires both courage and determination. Enter the ancient tower that stands at the edge of world, help the character bring back his lost memories and find out the darkest secret beyond the tower itself.
Founded in 2015, Lantern Studio is a small creative indie game design team of four: Beidi Guo (Art Director), Fox (Project Manager), Wang Guan (Programmer) and Wang Qian (Music Composer). LUNA The Shadow Dust is their first game.
