About the game

Moonshades is an offline dungeon crawler RPG for mobile, to restore the immersive atmosphere and experience of old school role-playing games.

Relive the fun of classic RPG games inspired by dungeons and dragons, realised in rich 3D environments, and with a deep, captivating story. Discover an enigmatic realm, saturated with ancient magic and myths - epic legends are forged as you venture into this offline RPG!

Your adventure will lead you beneath ruined towns, through grim, eerie dungeons... and towards monsters lurking in the ghostly half-light. Forces of darkness have invaded the realm, but some survivors from the kingdom of Harten still resist their fate, preserving the secrets of their ancestors' magic. Join the mission to restore liberty and enlightenment to this fantasy land! The kingdom's glory may be faded and its treasures buried, but hope for changing the course of history has not been completely lost in the darkness of the dungeons... and the rewards for your efforts will be great!



Harten, a once prospering kingdom, full of promise, is now under siege by the demons of another realm, they arrived under the full, red moon of Okrin the god of chaos and destruction, through a portal of unknown origin. The people of this land are trembling with fear, and rightly so, anybody who was brave or foolish enough to stand their ground now lay lifeless on the abandoned, grimy city streets. The survivors are now in hiding, deep inside the mountains of Greydawn, a neutral ground, a border to the undiscovered lands to the east. Two stars on the blood red night sky, two wanderers now arrive in these lands to repel the demon horde and close the portals once and for all. They hold a secret, and the invaders give them a wide berth, but why? Who are these strange characters?

If you like dungeon crawlers, this is your game. Think Dungeon Master on the Amiga/Atari ST, with a dash of Dark Souls, fast moving with ranged options like Might and Magic, and mazes like Wizardry. And 100% free.

Epic Masterpiece, the combat is fluid and fun, exploring is exciting and the atmosphere is the right amount of creepy and atypical dungeon.

Kiba Ryu, App Store

Amazing, simply beautiful. A real passion project. This game is deep and highly recommended for anyone enjoying semi-non-linear, first person realtime RPG, with a heavy emphasis on strategy, discovery and exploration.

While working in a full-time job (not in the game industry), I'm also an indie developer and gamer.

Making Moonshades is the culmination of a long-felt desire since I was a child without a computer or smartphone, who could hardly wait to get to ‘dungeon’ parties, armed with dice, paper, pens, and my own tales. When Eye of the Beholder and Wizardry appeared, I was completely enchanted.

I’m developing Moonshades by myself, working steadily on the new chapters in my free time
