MirrorMoon EP is a game about mystery and exploration set in outer space. These space travels begin on a red planet and its unique moon and extend across galaxies.
The single player part of MirrorMoon EP blends adventure and exploration with navigation-based puzzle solving. The multiplayer of MirrorMoon EP lets players share Galaxy Maps with other players: the first explorers to land on a planet will be able to name its Star System and that name will be forever bound to the star for any other fellow traveler who encounters it.
Each Galaxy consists of a thousand Systems: it will be possible to fully discover the mysteries of MirrorMoon EP only while collaborating with other players. Through the apparently indecipherable cockpit of an unknown spacecraft, players will be able to locate and travel to mysterious planets. Each planet has artifacts, buildings, and puzzles on its surface, hidden in astonishing low-poly sceneries.
Our first inspiration was the theme of the 2012 Global Game Jam, the Ouroboros. Ouroboros is the ancient symbol of a dragon eating its own tale; we interpreted it as the difference between perceiving a situation from a singular point of view (one’s own life) in contrast to understanding the whole picture (the cycle of life).
MirrorMoon EP has been exhibited at IndieCade 2013, FantasticArcade 2013, and was a finalist for the Nuovo Award at the 2013 Independent Games Festival.
