Undead Labs will use player feedback gained through Early Access to fine-tune the combat balancing in the single-player campaign and PvP, as well as to polish all core game systems.
“Early Access has become an invaluable part of the development process and we’re incredibly excited to let the Steam community come in and kick the tires on Moonrise,” said studio founder Jeff Strain. “When you need honest feedback from dedicated gamers, there’s no better community than Steam and I look forward to hearing what they have to say.”
Moonrise is a real-time tactical creature battler set against a vividly realized world of exotic locations and untamed wilderness. Players adopt the roles of Wardens, elite guardians who must recruit and train a diverse array of wild, elemental creatures known as Solari.
Players quickly find themselves confronted by a daunting task—to heal those Solari corrupted by the Moonrise, a world-spanning catastrophe that changes the innocent creatures into their darker forms, the savage Lunari. Only Wardens who master the elemental affinities and build the most effective Solari teams can hope to prevail against the corruption that threatens their land. Moonrise is a multiplatform title currently available for PC and Mac through Steam Early Access and planned for later release on iOS and Android devices.
