The Moonlight Smugglers prototype

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...

This is a prototype. The development of the game is currently on indefinite hold as we lack resources to continue, but we welcome all interest and feedback!
