"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."
In Aluna: Sentinel of the Shards, you play as Aluna as she defends a mystical shard containing the power of earth. From the heavens, mystic shards rain down upon the earth defying both time and space. As a child, Aluna was given the most powerful of these shards said to contain the heart of her mother, the goddess Pachamama. Circumstances force Aluna to leave her home and journey to the New World and fulfill her destiny, but an evil force also seeks to fulfill theirs. Aluna's past guides her future and her enemies will stop at nothing to steal the shard and take control of the world.
