Looking for some retro 8-bit sci-fi gaming fun? Moons Of Darsalon will be getting a PC release this coming April.

Dr. Kucho! Games and Astrolabe Games revealed this week that their retro 8-bit title Moons Of Darsalon will be coming out next month. This game has been eight years in the works, but it may be well worth the wait as you'll get some throwback vibes to titles like Earthworm Jim, as you platform around trying to take out evil space creatures across distant worlds while trying to save as many fellow humans as possible. Check out the latest trailer below as the game comes out on April 19th, 2023, for PC on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
