No Rest for the Wicked is a mature, precision Action Role-Playing Game (ARPG). The game features brutal combat, a richly detailed world, item crafting, and a customization system that enables your character to create unique equipment and housing with the help of your collection of artisans. No Rest for the Wicked features a deep plot supported by a rich cast of characters, all wrapped up in Moon’s signature visual style that is as beautiful as an oil painting. The game is Moon’s bold foray into the genre after successfully launching two critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning games - Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

With No Rest for the Wicked's precision-based battle system, Moon is redefining the art of combat. In No Rest for the Wicked, combat is animation-driven, direct, and tactile, empowering skilled players to execute visceral strikes and lethal manoeuvres. This innovative system promises players a deeply gratifying gameplay experience, distinguishing itself from conventional isometric ARPGs by emphasising skill and timing over simple 'button-mashing'.

Moreover, combat serves as the catalyst for players to shape their unique class identities. Each weapon boasts its own distinctive move set and can be tailored further with runes, upgrades, and more. Players are not constrained by rigid class structures but are instead offered the freedom to define characters from a rich assortment of gear, enhancements, modifiers, and special abilities.

The painterly art direction and visceral combat of No Rest for the Wicked are elevated by a mature, dark narrative. Set in the year 841, the kingdom faces a crucial moment with the passing of King Harol Bolein, sparking a catastrophic conflict as the peaceful transition of power descends into chaos. Amidst this political turmoil, a deadly plague resurfaces on the remote island of Sacra, corrupting both the land and its denizens. Players are thrust into the fray, wielding their weapons against grotesque beasts and the invading forces of the kingdom, navigating a turbulent atmosphere where every direction pulls them deeper into the maelstrom of chaos.

No Rest for the Wicked is poised for significant content expansions leading up to its 1.0 release. The game’s first update will introduce an innovative multiplayer experience, allowing players to team up together and compete against one another in PvP combat. The game’s second update will introduce a major expansion to the game’s world, featuring new enemies and storylines, with much more new content to follow thereafter. Stay tuned as No Rest for the Wicked continues to expand with exciting updates on the horizon.​​
