Lunafon: Tales of the Moon Oak is a 2D metroidvania-style platformer game, that is heavily inspired by our Welsh and Celtic heritage here at Ddraig House Game Studio.
The entire game is hand-painted and traditionally animated frame by frame. Everything you will see on the screen in the game environment has been painted traditionally on very large pieces of paper using Nicker Poster Colour, the same paints used to paint all of the backgrounds in the Studio Ghibli films such as Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and My Neighbour Totoro.
The game takes place across two lands; Lunafon, the land of the Moon, and Annwn, the land of the Sun. It follows the journey of our main character, Lunie, through these lands after the magic of Lunafon starts to die.
An army of deadly Broga have swept through Lunafon and stolen the Moon Lantern, taking it back to Annwn to the Withered King, Arawn.
Lunie must travel through her land to the sunken Halls of Cynddylan, where the barrier between the two worlds opens. When she arrives in Annwn however, she discovers that not all is as it seems. Before she can get to the Lantern, she must first get past the three beasts of Annwn; the deadly Widemaw, the Ridge Serpent, and the Goliath Broga, and then she must come face to face with Arawn himself.
