Luna Abyss Launches Lead Characters In Gamescom Trailer

Luna Abyss Launches Lead Characters In Gamescom Trailer

As forthcoming narrative-driven first-person action-adventure Luna Abyss heads to Germany for the first time, remote game development studio Bonsai Collective will debut a brand new trailer showcasing two key characters - ‘Aylin’ and ‘Fawkes’.

The never-before-seen clip casts light on both characters’ roles within the game’s lore, with Aylin serving as the player’s guide as they traverse the diverse environments at the heart of Luna Abyss. As players will discover, those who step out into the Luna Abyss will be tasked with uncovering the mysteries of the mimic moon turned prison planet, as well as the chasm within its depths.

Aylin is your primary guide as you step outside your cell, serving as the governor of the Blood Moon Penal Colony. Taking direction from the mysterious All-Father, her primary imperative is to be helpful and supportive of the Scouts under her care, though her somewhat patchy understanding of humans occasionally leads her to make questionable decisions.

The trailer also details the game’s lead, prisoner Fawkes, incarcerated on the Blood Moon for embodying the characteristic red eyes of the Marked Ones. Alone, afraid, and thousands of miles from home, Fawkes wants only to survive their sentence, but the Abyss holds many secrets, and unwary Scouts are liable to discover things best left well alone.

“The story is an important part of the Luna Abyss experience that Bonsai Collective have been crafting, so it’s really great to finally be able to put it front and centre in this brand new trailer,” says Benni Hill, Creative Director at Bonsai Collective. “We can’t wait to show the game to more of our peers at Gamescom.”

  • Buried Mystery: Uncover the mysteries of the mimic moon, and the abyss within its depths. Come face to face with remnants of the colony’s downfall & discover your role within this doomed world. Learn all the secrets the abyss has to offer.
