Over the past few weeks, as often as I could, I spent my free time exploring Luna the Shadow Dust. This point and click adventure follow a young boy through a dreamy tower where he meets a friend that helps him through his exploration.
Luna the Shadow Dust has a very simple way of telling the story. No talking, no text to read, just elegant video and music to illustrate emotions and history. The story to tell follows a time when the moon has gone dark, leaving an enchanted world draped in shadow. You take this young boy on his quest to recover lost memories, restore the light, and reveal the dark secret that lies beyond the ancient tower at the edge of his world.
This classical style point and click puzzle adventure game provide unique puzzles that force you to really look deep into the environment around you while challenging you to think outside the box on how to resolve the necessary issues in each area of the tower. Once your furry friend joins the team you are then tasked with combine the efforts with dual character controls as you figure out which character is needed to trigger different activities. I really enjoyed exploring and testing out different possibilities and combinations of efforts needed to progress to the next area. Many of the puzzles contained completely unique solutions that I have rarely seen tried and designed so well.
What I found myself enjoying the most was the soundtrack. For many players, the music used in a game really sets the mood and tempo. I found myself always relaxed and engaged no matter how long I may have spent on a puzzle. In other games, I believe I would have been frustrated or walked away for a bit, but the elaborately arranged soundtrack in Luna was ideal for creating an atmosphere that was stressfree and calming.
Overall, Luna the Shadow Dust is definitely a point and click adventure game to including in your Steam Library. The game is out now and available on Steam. Try it out and let us know what you think also. Follow the game on Twitter twitter.com.
