The fresh video spot gives both a detailed look at the recording process directly from Air Studios, London
- featuring the London Voices choir - and an effusive interview with Luna Abyss composer David Housden, who talks through both his process and his relationship with the development team.
The video was produced for online music festival Save & Sound. The nonprofit event - which ran on Steam between September 11th and September 14th - featuring exclusive content, including demos, discounts, and original content from almost 200 games.
Excitingly, the release of the new video also comes as Bonsai Collective unveils a brand new partnership with video game culture creative studio Lost In Cult to produce the Official Soundtrack on Vinyl release in association with Black Screen Records.
Mixing first-person bullet-hell action with a strong focus on narrative, Luna Abyss casts light on the remains of a long-lost colony, the remnants of which are scattered across the game’s caverns and valleys. It all serves as a suitable chamber for the prisoners sent into the depths of the Abyss to work off their sentences. With only an artificial prison guard named Aylin as your guide, the question of just what happened to Luna’s lost colony looms large. What are the secrets of the once-prosperous city of Greymont? And what are those strange voices that call out to you from the depths?
Luna Abyss will include:
Buried Mystery: Uncover the mysteries of the mimic moon, and the abyss within its depths. Come face to face with remnants of the colony’s downfall & discover your role within this doomed world. Learn all the secrets the abyss has to offer.
Forsaken Chasms: Sprint, jump & dash your way through this brutalist alien megastructure. Experience fluid first-person platforming as you travel through Luna & the depths of the abyss.
High-OctaneCombat: Survive deadly bullet-hell encounters with corrupted souls & twisted cosmic horrors. Master your weapons & make split-second decisions in fast-paced, explosive, bullet-hell combat.
Luna Abyss is crafted by a small and inclusive team of 16 developers passionate about world-building, story-telling, and classic video games. Bonsai Collective is wholeheartedly committed to fostering positive mental health & well-being within the studio, and is proud to create a space that ensures the team feel safe and secure in their own skin, identities, belief, values, and culture.
