New York City, USA - July 10th, 2020 - Digitart Interactive is happy to reveal Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards’ new Destiny Trailer, exploring the origins of Incan demigod Aluna. Sent as a small child from Spain to the “New World” of 16th century Latin America, Aluna embarks on a truly epic quest to lead her native people. 

Coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in 2020, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards stars comic book creator and actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, Clockstoppers, The Shield) as Aluna, and Julio Macias (Oscar 'Spooky' Diaz from On My Block) as Aluna’s father, Franicisco Cortes.

Created by actress/producer Paula Garces and Antonio Hernandez in response to the underrepresentation of both latino and female superheroes in comics, Aluna went on to become a cult hit and is currently starring 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 further made a name for herself in video games after becoming a playable character in S2 Games’ popular MOBA Heroes of Newerth, where she was played by Paula Garces herself.

Developed by Digiart Interactive and  N-Fusion 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: Sentinel of the Shards take players to a place we’ve never seen explored in gaming before,” said Digiart Interactive founder Antonio Hernandez. “We think Inca mythology and Latin American history is really fascinating, and there’s a huge population of Latin American gamers out there who aren’t reflected in their favorite pastime. We wanted to celebrate this oft neglected culture - and create a kick-ass swashbuckling adventure along the way!”
