Cover Reveal – No Rest For The Wicked

Moon Studios cemented itself as a premier upstart studio thanks to its stellar work on Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps. The team is parlaying that success and experience to craft a dramatically different project it’s been dreaming about for years: No Rest for the Wicked. This dark fantasy action RPG combines influences from a variety of genres, from ARPGs like Diablo to the difficulty and thoughtful combat of Dark Souls, to the town-building of Animal Crossing, and more.

We traveled to Vienna, Austria, to visit the home (and Moon’s de facto headquarters) of co-founder Thomas Mahler. Joined by Moon’s other co-founder and CEO, Gennadiy Korol, we went hands-on with No Rest for the Wicked and filled 12 pages with our impressions and exclusive details about the game’s town-building and social features, endgame content, and early access roadmap. We also picked the brains of the two figureheads to learn how the project game to be, what to expect, as well as background on Moon’s history. 

Here’s a closer look at this month’s cover. 

Issue 364 also includes other great features, such as an eight-page deep-dive on the video game history of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 2024 marks the 50th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons, so we have a retrospective of the role-playing game’s colossal influence on the game industry as told by developers. With the well-received launch of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, we caught up with Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama to discuss the game’s themes, the growing international success of the Like a Dragon franchise, and what comes next. The issue also includes previews for upcoming titles like Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Silent Hill 2, Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, and more.
