Digitart Interactive announced that it’s making a standalone action-RPG starring acclaimed comic book heroine Aluna with Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards, coming in 2020 to Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Developed by N-Fusion Interactive and Digiart Interactive, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards follows the exploits of Aluna, the warrior daughter of a Spanish conquistador and South American nature goddess Pachamama. Raised in early 16th century Spain, Aluna escaped to the New World only to realize it was her true homeland. Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards sets our heroine on a quest through Inca mythology as she strives to restore the amulet her goddess mother entrusted to her… and fulfill her true destiny.
Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards combines the deep action-RPG mechanics of Diablo with the revisionist mythology of God of War. Based around Inca lore, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards features mythological gods, beasts, and tales that formed the backbone of 16th century Colombian culture. Venture from the Sanctuary seaside cliffs through the massive jungles of the New World, all the way to Nagaric’s Temple in the Volcanic Canyons in this epic historical adventure.
Aluna was created by actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, Clockstoppers, The Shield) and Antonio Hernandez. After starring in a series of comic books, Aluna grew greater popularity after becoming a playable character in S2 Games’ popular MOBA Heroes of Newerth, where she was played by Paula Garces herself. More recently, she’s starred in the ongoing comic book saga, The World of Aluna, written by Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Origins scribes Ryan Galletta, Dooma Wendschuch, and Corey May.
