Moon Hunters

Create your own legend in a 1 to 4 player co-operative personality test! Explore a mystical Mesopotamian-inspired world that's different every time you play.
The Steam version includes the free expansion, Eternal Echoes, with a new snowy tribe, seventh character class, and a new constellation meta-game system, complete with a final boss and endless arena mode.


When the moon does not rise over Issaria, monsters to infest the land and cause chaos. You must set out alone or with the other chosen children of the Moon to solve the mystery and restore balance. You have only 5 days before King Mardokh and the Sun Cultists declare war.

Multiple playthroughs uncover characters, conflicts, and decisions. Each of the five tribes responds differently to the crisis and looks for different qualities in their heroes.
Every action and choice you make contributes to your legend as a constellation in the night sky. Future generations will build upon the mythology you create. How will you be remembered?

  • Revive your old heroes: Honor your past heroes, and test their strength against the new final boss or endless arena
  • Online or local co-op: Playing alone is fine, but team up with others to overcome the hardest challenges!
  • Great for parties: Each playthrough is less than an hour, allowing people to play together in one sitting.
  • Different every time: With a randomly generated world and adventure levels, with different upgrades at each vendor, there's always something new to find.
  • Familiars: Find various animal companions to help you on your journey.

  • Moon Hunters is a gem, and deserves to be a memorable constellation in the indie games scene.

  • Though the hardcore crowd may scoff at its unsophisticated combat system and the lack of a serious challenge, Moon Hunters' gorgeous presentation and unique brand of storytelling will absorb anyone who wishes to explore the countless sagas of an enchanting fantasy world.

  • It's a shame Moon Hunters isn't more polished on the technical side since it's a very interesting game we've really enjoyed.

  • Games Master UK

    There's a unique, endearing quality to Moon Hunters worth tracking down. [May 2016, p.83]

  • Moon Hunters is a short, engaging game, innovative in its approach to replay value, with each subsequent playthrough increasing in depth and pleasure.

  • Moon Hunters is a non consistent game that wants to bravely show a different gameplay, though the intriguing potentialities of the latter were not realized as initially thought. However, it is a quite solid game, funny both in single player and in co-op mode.

  • A short adventure worthy of the breezy gamer's attention — once multiplayer is fixed.

  • CD-Action

    The Moon delights us with its entire glory just once a month – on other nights it looks unfinished. The same goes for Moon Hunters, which has its moments but its story seems incomplete and gameplay mechanics are too simple. [13/2016, p.59]

  • While Moon Hunters may not be the perfect game, it nobly aims for the stars, and for that alone it is memorable.

  • Edge Magazine

    There's something to be said for a game that lets you elope with the final boss, but otherwise Moon Hunters' light wanes a little more quickly than we'd expected. [May 2016, p.123]

  • A pixelated Diablo-like with a beautiful presentation and an unfortunate lack of content, Moon Hunters is hard to recommend to anyone other than people with three friends locally.

  • Moon Hunters doesn't give you the time to truly nestle into its world in one sitting, relying instead on the idea that they’ll keep coming back to uncover more and more with each successive playthrough. I wish I could say that at some point it all started to come together for me, but it didn't. It never felt like I was getting enough out of those playthroughs to make them truly worthwhile.

  • Moon Hunters is an artistic game that fails almost completely in delivering an interesting and fun gameplay. Maybe too ambitious, it may have a good story to tell but it’s deeply buried in too much time of uninspired gameplay.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    Too much ambition send Moon Hunters to mere mediocrity. The graphics will probably charm you, but procedurally generated gameplay will not. [Issue#264]
