Comic book heroine gets her own game! Starring actress, director and series creator Paula Garces!
New York City, USA – May 26th, 2021 – Digitart Interactive and N-Fusion Interactive are proud to announce that its Inca mythology-based action-RPG Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is out now on PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch for $19.99. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow. 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, and Julio Macias (Oscar ‘Spooky’ Diaz from On My Block) as Aluna’s father, Franicisco Cortes.
Developed by Digiart Interactive and N-Fusion Interactive, Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards is a rip-roaring romp through Inca lore featuring 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 pulpy period adventure.
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.
Created by Paula Garces and Antonio Hernandez in response to the underrepresentation of both Latin and female superheroes in the entertainment industry, 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.

“I love comic books and video games, yet as a Latin American woman, I never saw myself reflected in the media I was consuming. Antonio and I created Aluna to change that,” said Aluna creator and actress Paula Garces. “Creating the comic book series was a thrill, but letting players actually embody Aluna and see the world through her eyes in a video game is a dream come true!”
“Aluna has been a passion project for Paula and I for years, as we’ve wanted to create an empowering role for Latina girls everywhere,” said Digiart Interactive founder Antonio Hernandez. “Women and people of color are playing video games more than ever, and we wanted to create media that reflects this diversity and celebrates Latin American culture. We hope Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards offers an enlightening look at Inca mythology for people from all walks of life.”
