Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is a mythology-based action-RPG that follows the exploits of Aluna, the warrior daughter of a Spanish conquistador and South American nature goddess Pachamama.

Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards stars comic book creator and actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, The Shield) as Incan demigod Aluna.

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.

Created stars comic book creator and actress Paula Garces (Harold & Kumar series, On My Block, The Shield) 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.

“We originally created the character of Aluna to counter the lack of and misrepresentation of Hispanic females in pop culture,” says Garcés. “She took off like wildfire, so we launched the comic book, and a video game was the natural next step. Latin American culture has so much variety and depth, there are hundreds of exciting stories to tell.”

Key Features:

  • Explore a vast land filled with dense jungles, majestic beaches, and towering cliffs.
  • Choose from a vast array of weapons based on historical weapons from the Old World (South America) and New World (Spanish Empire).
  • Customize Aluna’s fighting style by unlocking powerful magical abilities across 3 schools of magic.
  • Collect, craft, and trade hundreds of unique items and loot.
  • Defeat mythological boss creatures inspired by South American lore.
  • Aluna is voiced by actress/producer/creator Paula Garces.
  • Based on the popular comic book series "The World of Aluna" by the writers of Assassins Creed and Batman: Arkham Origins.

Currently available for Nintendo Switch and PC, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is coming soon to PS4 and Xbox One.
