This War Of Mine and Moonlighter are both free on Epic this week

Epic Games started out giving away one free game per fortnight to lure people into their new Store. Then they moved to weekly giveaways. Now, this week, they have two games free for keepsies. I don't know where this acceleration of freebies ends, but I can tell you that you have seven days to grab This War Of Mine and Moonlighter.

Moonlighter announces Between Dimensions DLC and sale

Mystical mercantile action-RPG Moonlighter has been selling like hotcakes - half a million copies, albeit split across several platforms. Clearly, selling magical capitalism is good business, so Digital Sun have announced the game's first paid DLC, Between Dimensions, following on from a series of big free updates. The expansion will include a new interdimensional dungeon, new monsters in both old and new locations, and plenty…

Moonlighter adds new Friends And Foes to meet underground

Mystical mercantile dungeon crawl Moonlighter was a charmer when it launched, and developers Digital Sun have been hard at work expanding it ever since. Today's free Friends & Foes update adds one big new feature (familiars that you can raise on your farm), and a bundle of all-new mini-bosses to tussle with. They've even found a couple ways to cram in even more lore and…

Overthinking Games: How Moonlighter’s inventory combats your greed

Games have, by and large made us into an insatiable, entitled bunch. We’ve come to expect to be able to waltz into someone’s home and take the bread right off their plate, chests in the woods were left just for us, and all wolves take their purses when they leave their den. There’s a lot of stuff in games, and always more of it than…

Moonlighter’s ‘More Stock’ update adds extra loot and angry floors

Fantasy shopkeeping adventure Moonlighter has had a busy couple months since its launch in May. Not content to just let stock sit on the shelves, developers Digital Sun have been quick to bring in new goods and renovate its dungeons, and today's update has been its largest yet. Among other things, the 'More Stock' update bulks up environment variety and offers additional rewards for those…

Feature: Stock check

Moonlighter review

It took a little while to get going, but goodness me I'm hooked on Moonlighter now. Take a good dose of rogue-lite action-RPG, add in permanence of equipment, and then delicately smother in a shopkeeping sim. It's a game about raiding dungeons at night, then working in the days to sell the loot from your store.

Mystical mercantile mashup Moonlighter hits stores

Ever since delightful Japanese hack n' slash/storekeeping sim hybrid Recettear proved that such a thing was even possible, I've loved the idea of playing as an RPG shopkeeper. Clearly they're the most powerful class around - how else do you get multiple god-slaying swords in stock? Today yet another game in this small yet charming sub-genre was released. In Moonlighter, you run your family's equipment…

Be an RPG shopkeep by day, hero by night in Moonlighter

Looking at Digital Sun's upcoming management sim/action-RPG hybrid Moonlighter, it's hard not to draw comparisons to excellent Japanese indie of yesteryear, Recettear. And as far as I'm concerned, that's just fine, because I haven't played anything that quite scratched that itch in nearly 8 years. Run a generic fantasy equipment shop by day, crawl through the dungeons for more stock by night. How else did…

Dungeons And Debtors: Moonlighter

Do you remember Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale? Released in Europe and North America in 2010, it's a dungeon-crawling RPG combined with shop management. You're the person adventurers turn to when they need an upgrade on that rusty sword and battered leather armour. Moonlighter [official site] looks like a fresh version of the same idea. In the daylight hours, you manage your shop and at…
