Now here’s an intriguing combination: Moonlighter is one part Legend of Zelda-inspired dungeon battler, and one part banal retail simulator. As Will, the son of shopkeepers, you’ll spend your day setting prices, interacting with customers, managing staff, and upgrading the store along the way. But at night, the game is very different.
See, Will moonlights as something of a warrior, diving into mysterious dungeons to fight creatures and recover loot, which he’ll then sell at his shop. The two sides of the game feed into each other, and early reviews have been very positive, citing a Stardew Valley-like hook to the daytime routine along with challenging combat in the evenings. You can buy it on Steam.
