Press release:
New York City, USA – September 11th, 2019 – Digitart Interactive is proud to announce that it’s making a standalone action-RPG starring acclaimed comic book heroine Aluna with “Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards“, coming in 2020 to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Developed by N-Fusion Interactive and Digiart Interactive, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards follows the exploits of Aluna, the warrior daughter of a Spanish conquistador and South American nature goddess Pachamama. Raised in early 16th century Spain, Aluna escaped to the New World only to realize it was her true homeland.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards sets our heroine on a quest through Inca mythology as she strives to restore the amulet her goddess mother entrusted to her… and fulfill her true destiny.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards combines the deep action-RPG mechanics of Diablo with the revisionist mythology of God of War. Based around Inca lore, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards features mythological gods, beasts, and tales that formed the backbone of 16th century Colombian culture.

Venture from the Sanctuary seaside cliffs through the massive jungles of the New World, all the way to Nagaric’s Temple in the Volcanic Canyons in this epic historical adventure.

Aluna was created by actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, Clockstoppers, The Shield) and Antonio Hernandez. After starring in a series of comic books, Aluna grew greater popularity after becoming a playable character in S2 Games’ popular MOBA Heroes of Newerth, where she was played by Paula Garces herself.

More recently, she’s starred in the ongoing comic book saga, The World of Aluna, written by Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Origins scribes Ryan Galletta, Dooma Wendschuch, and Corey May.

“Aluna has made major strides for hispanic representation in comic books,” said Digiart Interactive founder Antonio Hernandez.

“But when it comes to games, our culture remains massively underrepresented. We wanted to change that… and make a kick-ass action-adventure along the way! We’re hoping to share our culture with the rest of the world in an accessible, entertaining way when Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards comes out next year!”

“Every time I’d go to Comic-Con I see throngs of Latino fans, yet there’s next to no latino superheroes,” said Aluna creator and actress Paula Garces.

“It seemed like there was this huge population who would like to see themselves reflected through comics and games, and simply weren’t, as no one was making these.

So we decided to create our own latino heroine in a series that focuses specifically on the colonization of South America. And thus, Aluna was born!”
