As 2019 Ends, Let’s Talk About the Moon

[UPDATE 27/08/20: moon is now available worldwide on the Nintendo Switch!]

Well, the year is almost over, and it was a good one for me — thank you very much for all of your support as we released Dandy Dungeon on Switch and Steam, and moon on Switch here in Japan.

I’ve been looking over comments you’ve all been leaving on our Discord and our Twitter lately, and I think it’s well past time to give you some direct progress updates from our little studio.

I know we said the English release of moon would be “coming very soon”, and clearly that was a little optimistic. I’m really sorry it’s taking this long, but the translation and implementation of moon is… very delicate. We need more time to finish it, but please rest assured the English version is still on the way, and we hope you can be patient with us!

The English version of moon is being prepared by a tiny, tiny Onion team. I mean… Onion Games itself is very, very small, but these Tiny Onions are working very hard, every day, to get everything ready for you.

The localization of moon is actually going great! But there are many, many more things involved than just translating the text. I’d say that the translation itself is more than 70% done, implementing that translation is around 20% done, and then debugging and checking the translation is about 5% done.

I think, all added up, the project as a whole is at about 40% done…. probably!

We have all been working incredibly hard lately, juggling multiple projects and issues at once (including…. new games no-one’s even seen yet!). But that means even though we’re working hard, we’re working slow. I hope everyone is ok waiting until everything is really, truly ready!

Personally, I want to be even more involved than usual in the localization process, and also contributing more to our New Game Ideas, but… to tell the truth.. my brain, my body… my mind are all so, so exhausted.

I need a proper rest. I have been working too much this year. I need just a little time to recover ahead of everything we’ll have coming in 2020.

Give me time!

Give us more time, please!

Thank you very much,
Yoshiro Kimura

[UPDATE 27/08/20: moon is now available worldwide on the Nintendo Switch!]

Finally, it can be told! As you might have seen in Japan’s latest Nintendo Direct, the cult-hit “remix RPG adventure” moon is coming to the Nintendo Switch! The game is available for pre-order in Japan right now, and, very soon, the game will be available to the rest of the world, finally in English for the very first time!

Never heard of moon and don’t know why it’s inspired so many of your favorite adventure games? Read on to learn more…

A long, long time ago, under the silvery light of a full moon, the legendary “anti-RPG” moon was released in Japan.

Now, 22 years later, revived by a team of its original creators, find out why it became an instant cult-classic, as moon comes to the Nintendo Switch — in English, for the first time ever!

[WHAT IS MOON?]

Have you ever played an RPG and wondered…

“Why is it OK that this hero is breaking into houses and stealing items from people’s drawers??”

“Why is it OK that this hero is killing thousands of innocent monsters??”

Moon is a game about turning those tropes upside down, and seeing what really happens behind the scenes of your favorite RPG videogames.

[THE STORY OF MOON]

One night, under the silvery light of a full moon, a young boy is suddenly sucked through his TV and into a videogame — a classic JRPG called “Moon World”.

Following closely behind the game’s brave hero, the boy begins his own journey to recover the world’s missing moonlight by collecting “Love”.

moon_20_tropicalfield

As Moon World’s hero loots and levels up by cutting down monsters for experience points — you know, as heroes do — the boy releases their souls and collects their “Love”.

Moon is not a game where you’ll fight to level up — your own progress comes by gathering lost “Love”!

moon_15_wanda

As you explore the world, you’ll meet a crazy cast of weird and wonderful NPCs. Observe their strange habits and daily routines by visiting them at different times and days of the week, and learn their secrets to uncover even more lost “Love”!

“Now… use your own power to open the door…”

[KEY FEATURES]

• Conquer a game with a clear conscience in this Zero-Battle RPG! Free monsters’ souls!

• Collect dozens of “MoonDiscs” containing original songs, and choose your own favorite background music!
