Hamburg, Germany, November 22nd, 2019 - Mooneye Studios is proud to announce that its animal switching adventure Lost Ember is out now on PlayStation 4, GOG and Steam for $29.99 / £25.99 / €29.99. A Nintendo Switch version will follow in the months to come.

Lost Ember is a third-person narrative-based exploration title about a wolf who can inhabit all manner of animals, along with their spirit companion. Players will be able to control over a dozen different creatures, such as a hummingbird, a fish, a mountain goat and a parrot. Along the way, your spirit guide will narrate the tale of what happened to the lost human civilizations that once settled in these wild lands. 

Experience the contrasting stories of the fall of mankind and the lush life in a world reclaimed by nature. Explore the land, sea, and air, as you possess any creature you come across to experience life from a whole new perspective. Fly through gargantuan canyon valleys as a parrot! Tumble through the grass as a wombat! Swim through shimmering lakes as a fish! Your journey will take you from densely wooded jungles, to lush rainforest canopies, to barren desert plains and archaic temples. Ultimately, you’ll discover a tale of loyalty, despair, and betrayal, as echoes of the lost Yanrana culture come to life in a lush wilderness devoid of man. 

“We’re all big animal lovers at Mooneye, so we wanted to make a game that captures the wonder and beauty of their lives,” said Mooneye Studios CEO and programmer Tobias Graff. “But it’s not just about animals either, as at its heart Lost Ember is a human story about a fallen civilization. It’s a mystery, and adventure, and mood piece. It’s about the sometimes uneasy marriage between man and nature that we’re all embroiled in, which is becoming an increasingly urgent matter.”
