Luna Abyss, an upcoming bullet-hell horror game from developer and publisher Bonsai Collective, has just released a new trailer featuring its expansive world. It also features narration that elaborates on the lore. Luna Abyss doesn’t have a concrete release date just yet, but it will be available on PC and PlayStation. Here’s the new “World Showcase” trailer from the official Bonsai Collective YouTube channel:
The detailed world of Luna Abyss clearly plays a large role in its appeal, so it’s nice to have even more footage of that broader universe. Today’s trailer really reinforced the red and gray color scheme, which creates a dreary tone and dramatic contrast.
Despite all of the claustrophobic settings, the environments look thoughtful and elaborate, and bear a distinct history. And the narration itself builds the right kind of foundation for some interesting surprises involving the plot.
The soothing piano music also has a surreal, patient, and contemplative nature that adds a lot to the mystery. Since the player will be seeking out various secrets about the central alien megastructure, the new footage effectively sets expectations.
Ultimately, today’s trailer was very consistent with the original announcement trailer that was revealed as far back as August 2022. It was filled with moody, creeping horror, as well as some intriguing yet vague storytelling.
Bonsai Collective is still a burgeoning developer, and they’ve published Luna Abyss themselves, so there aren’t any prior releases or relationships to compare. It also means that Luna Abyss will decide the first impression for a lot of casual gamers.
Fortunately, it’s clear that the team had a very distinct vision, with promising ideas for the genre that could make bullet hell seem a little more accessible.
