Moonlighter’s ‘Friends & Foes’ Update Adds New Companions Just in Time for Valentine’s Day!

Warsaw, Poland, February 13, 2019 – A very wise person once said that a true friendship is born the moment one person says to another, “Let’s slay some monsters together!”. We certainly wouldn’t want to disagree with ‘a very wise person’ so as part of the new Moonlighter ‘Friends & Foes’ update, launching today for free on all platforms, Digital Sun and 11 bit studios are introducing nine new companions to the game.

Now, even though the freshly introduced nine familiars can’t really talk, they’re more than happy to aid you during your most dangerous adventures to the dungeons outside the merchant village of Rynoka. We wouldn’t want to make Moonlighter too easy, of course, so to counterbalance your buddy upgrades the developers have also added brand-new, ferocious minibosses (so hopefully you and your new companions are getting on well with each other. You’re gonna need all the help you can get!).

NEW FEATURES AND MAJOR CHANGES

  • Companions — Nine new familiars have arrived to aid you in your dungeon crawling! Kill a particular enemy 10 times and a very special egg will appear! Give the egg three days to hatch and your fresh-faced familiar will be ready for action! Each sporting different mechanics, they can damage enemies, restore your life, get items for you, act as an additional chest, and more!
  • Minibosses — Eight new minibosses are here to challenge you! They will appear as guardians of the dungeons, securing gateways leading to deeper rooms. They will emerge at the end of the first and second floor in each dungeon.
  • Zenon’s Campfire — From now on, when you visit the dungeons at night, Zenon will be there, sitting by his campfire, ready to tell you some forgotten stories of Rynoka and Moonlighter’s world. Those tales will be unlocked with the game’s progression.
  • Tomo Stories — We’ve modified and added more lines for Tomo. They should explain her relationship with Will better, shedding some light on their mutual past.
  • Banker Information — We have introduced a lot of special warnings and UI changes to avoid the Banker “stealing” your money. A lot of you forgot to revisit that mustachioed capitalist and were losing the investment.
  • Sorting Items — We’ve added a sorting mechanic inside the inventory.
  • Get the Broom! — We’ve added the possibility to get the Broom™ from Le Retailer (if you’ve managed to lose it somehow!). The Broom™ is important for getting some achievements – so we hope you like this little feature!
  • Prices Update — We’ve added a new system in the Shop to better inform whenever an item’s price gets updated.
  • Minor changes and Fixes

Minesweeper Genius Makes its Explosive Debut on Switch Today!

SYDNEY, NSW – Feb. 12, 2019 – Minesweeper Genius, the modern take on the classic game of logic from developer Mgaia Studio and publisher Blowfish Studios, is now available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

In Minesweeper Genius, aliens have acquired Aristotle’s DNA and cloned him to conduct experiments in labs filled with explosive land mines. It’s up to players to sweep their way through each level, moving Aristotle from one square to the next en route to the exit while avoiding subterranean dangers. Numbers on each row and column indicate how many mines are near, tasking players with working out where they are without making a costly mistake.

Aristotle’s challenge gets more complicated when special tiles come into play, introducing new obstacles that alter or restrict his movement around the alien labs. Use flags to keep track of where hidden hazards are and enjoy relaxing music while working out solutions.

Minesweeper Genius helps make the rules of Minesweeper more accessible with a learning curve that acclimates players to the mechanics and logic required to solve puzzles in the game’s 130 standard levels. Puzzle experts can then try to sweep through the 55 extra difficult stages. Conquer everything and need a new test? Take on the console-exclusive Custom Level mode, where new puzzles are procedurally generated based on adjustable settings.

“Minesweeper Genius takes me back to our uni days, when we’d procrastinate on preparing for exams by trying to conquer the most ridiculous Minesweeper grids possible,” said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios. “I look forward to a new generation enjoying Mgaia’s wonderfully original take on this classic experience now that Minesweeper Genius is available for consoles.”

Minesweeper Genius is now available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $5.99 USD / £4.99 GBP / € 5.99 / 7.99 AUD. The game supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese.
