What is it?

Moonlight Smugglers is a dramatic story-driven game marrying visual novel choose your own adventure style gameplay with light rpg elements and arcade sailing. It tells the story of Elizabeth Fay, a smuggler captain who is pursuing a mystery that captured her imagination since childhood — a reflection of a moon that cannot be seen in the sky.

The story takes place in an archipelago divided between three countries. As the young smuggler is pursuing her personal interests a large conflict is brewing...

Our design goals:

  • a dramatic and fascinating main storyline
  • quality sidequests
  • immersive and fun sailing mechanics
  • multiple choice non-linear storytelling with skill checks
  • fun naval combat
  • enjoyable exploration
  • other secondary gameplay mechanics that are all more or less optional but nonetheless fun and worthwhile to engage with
  • cool water graphics™
