Lunark is a platform game with simple pixilated graphics that tell a cinematic story. It's similar to games like Flashback that were popular in the 80s and 90s. You run, jump, hang, climb, roll, and shoot your way through mysterious alien ruins, a flying penitentiary, a high-tech megalopolis, and a majestic forest.

The game is set on the Moon after Earth became inhospitable. Humanity used the Moon to escape and find another habitable planet. Unfortunately, the planet was already inhabited. Centuries later you You play as Leo, an orphan rejected for being different and retrace his origins in the midst of a rebellion against the totalitarian regime you find yourself in.

You explore the planet, meet characters and solve problems to open doors and deal with enemies. Although it looks like an old fashioned game the controls are responsive and intuitive and the progression system generous. Lunark is an adventure focused on delivering a thrilling narrative with explosive moments.
