In Dark Moon, gamers will be forced to scavenge, build, and – above all else – stay on the move. The survival strategy game, set on the moon, sees a future in which a massive solar storm has devastated the Earth to an unknown extent and those trapped on the moon must stay ahead of the sun’s killer rays.
It’s not just a matter of gathering resources and keeping moving, if the trailer is any indication you’ll also need to worry about the morale of your crew and – if you can justify it to yourself – lie to them to keep them going.
It’s an interesting twist on the normal strategy game, so I’ll be keeping an eye on Dark Moon as it winds its way towards its June 2020 release date.
Here’s the press release:

Dark Moon is a survival strategy game where in order to survive you must avoid the Sun’s scorching rays and embrace the darkness. Gather resources, upgrade your mobile base, make tough moral decisions, and keep moving forward. Remember, whatever you do – don’t go into the light!
“We’ve always wanted to tell mature and engaging stories as well as educate our players about our world. With Dark Moon we will be able to do both, to tell a story of one’s struggle to come back home from the Moon. As a real-time strategy title with survival elements, we believe the game could become an emotional journey, especially with the moral choices the players have to make along the way.” – Pawel Nitta, Head of Marketing & PR.
