Luna The Shadow Dust is an adventure game where you play two companions drawn together in a hand-animated world. Each part of the game is beautifully realised and presents a puzzle to solve.

As you play you follow the journey of a young boy and his companion as they trace memories through an ancient tower that stands at the edge of the world. You switch between the two characters to approach the puzzles from different perspectives.

Unlike other point and click style games, each puzzle room in the tower is self contained. You always have what you need to solve it with no trying of random combinations of items or backtracking for what you might have missed.
