Lunark is a 2D retro platform game with adventure game elements inspired by the classic Flashback: The Quest For Identity. The project was developed by Canari Games studio.


The action takes place on the planet Albaryne. 300 years earlier it was colonized by humanity in order to save our species from extinction due to destruction of Earth's environment. The colonization was carried out by the artificial intelligence NOAH, which transformed the moon into a giant spaceship (the title LUNARK) and used it to transport millions of human embryos.

As the game's story begins, humanity lives in a prosperous but freedomless new world. The planet is controlled by NOAH and an army of robots constructed by this AI. We take on the role of a young man named Leo, who will play a key role in the rebellion against the rule of artificial intelligence.
