with the last moonbeam
~*~ STORY ~*~
MOSS is a mender on the seventh moon of Bear, where she repairs machinery and electronics for her neighbors.
One sunny afternoon, she's awoken from a nap to learn that the MOONHEART is broken! Without it, no messages can be sent off-moon. And what's worse, tonight is the night of the lunar alignment...
Walk, jump, climb, and glide through this platformer adventure as Moss works to mend the Moonheart. Along the way, you'll meet the other inhabitants of Moss's home moon... and perhaps find some secrets too.

~*~ SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY ~*~
|GBA COMPATIBLE||To play, download the ROM and use with a GBA compatible system or emulator, such as mGBA.|
For offline play, I recommend using mGBA, since that's the emulator I've tested. Others should work, but saving in particular is not guaranteed to work with other emulators, so you may wish to use save states.

I made a short trailer for the game! <3
and there's a web page as well - I plan to add extras to it over time as I have material: https://adamledoux.net/games/moonbeam/
do I need a controller to play this game? Having some trouble with it
are you playing in the browser? you should only need a keyboard
My bad! Just found the controls, playing now :)
no problem at all - have fun! <3
The story is a bit sad but very nice and I had a great feeling after reading it.
I especially like the ending scene!
This was really nice. Really love the combination of the gba homebrew texture with bitsy-style art, all in service of exploring a very pretty world and a lovely story. I'm glad you took up gba homebrewing and that you were able to make and share such a cool thing!
thank you so much - and thanks for playing! <3
In any artform, when drawing on outdated themes and limitations, it's always exciting when someone goes back and adds something modern to it. This is one of those games.
Ledoux clearly understands what makes GBA-era games as legendary as they are. Expressive art style, entrancing cutscenes, not to mention the masterfully paced story. Ecstatic to see what Ledoux comes up with next!!
glad you enjoyed the game! :)
This game is really fun. Playing on Analogue Pocket, need to figure out how to make it do native cart saves but I'll probably try it on an everdrive. Love the look
I just started playing today but I love it so far! The dialog and world building are really well done. Looking forward to seeing what else you make!
thank you! it's a fun to see it on the SP <3
absolutely gorgeous...! i love it all but especially all the little things like how you hold to say dialogue. i'd love to read a more in-depth devlog about how you put this all together! (photo of it on analogue pocket!)
thank you! it’s very nice to have those little details appreciated :)
I do plan on writing a postmortem at some point on my blog, and I’ll post a link to it here too <3
(the game looks really nice on the pocket - thanks for sharing the photo!)
lovely writing!! i think i’m missing a deer somewhere, but aren’t we all
<3 thank you!!
…I can’t spill the beans on the deer though ;)
