Remote game development studio Bonsai Collective has announced the development of Luna Abyss, a bullet hell FPS set in the darkest reaches of space.
You play as a convict, who’s been given one of those “creative” sentences: to explore the cratered ruins of a derelict megastructure beneath the surface of an alien moon. Your goal is to figure out what happened to the community that once lived there, but you can already guess it was nothing good. What’d your character do to deserve this, anyway?
“Luna Abyss takes place on a moon that used to house a prosperous colony of the New British Empire, but is now wiped out and sealed following a mysterious event known as the Scourge,” says Benni Hill, Creative Director at Bonsai Collective. “In the prison atop the Abyss, your one companion is Aylin, an artificial prison sentry watching your every move. She sends convicts deep below for reconnaissance, extraction, and investigation of the collapse. We can’t wait to see what players make of this mysterious world.”
Bonsai also hints that Aylin may not be entirely trustworthy, and that the only person you should really trust on your mission is yourself. You know the FPS rules: run and gun. Collect weapons and if something moves, blow it up.
Luna Abyss is now in development for consoles and PC. We should learn more in the coming months.
