Moonscars, an upcoming 2D action role-playing game developed by Studio Black Mermaid, has received a new gameplay trailer. In addition to the trailer for the game, store pages for it have also been made live on Steam and the Humble Store.
The gameplay trailer for Moonscars highlights the game’s dark fantasy backdrop while also showcasing the game’s non-linear level design and combat abilities. Those who are interested can try out the free demo version that is currently accessible on Steam and will continue to be accessible until the conclusion of Steam Next Fest on June 20.
The look that Moonscars is going for is one that is desaturated, with highlights of contrasting colors like red and yellow. The Earth Bowels is shown in the gameplay clip as an example of one of the game’s areas.
The ability to dash through the air is something that, in true Metroidvania form, will have to be unearthed by players before it can be put to use in order to investigate more regions of Moonscars. In keeping with the spirit of the genre, you may also anticipate several such instances of lock-and-key ability-gating architecture.
The new Moonscars trailer comes to a close by showcasing one of the boss fights in the game, which takes place against Cruel Lajos. This particular boss is said to have been a former ally of the player character at one point. Have a look at it down below.
