Lucky Luna’s environment is reminiscent of games like Moonlighter. A muted color palette softens dull pixels, and a soft ambient glow that permeates every level helps sell the game’s mystery. Lucky Luna’s beautiful music complements this mystical theme. Evoke the feeling of adventure and pick it up at the right moment to inflate, even when you’re flying through levels.
