Now there ain't no wrong 'bout the gold and silver, but I ain't spending ma' days with a pickaxe in hand when I could be tending to my precious moonshine!


It is common knowledge that the best moonshine comes from the shine of the moon, and tonight the sky itself seems to be falling! What more can we ask for?

Collect lunar fragments, pay attention to the process, both above and below the ground and make the perfect moonshine. But most importantly, do it quickly. The night doesn't last forever... This partnership will make us bloody rich!

    Great game! Went to medium right away and managed to beat it in a little less than 5 minutes :D

    It's relatively simple and very well executed! I can see a few more things happening on the top half, but honestly for a jam that's enough content. Everything felt cohesive and well balanced. I only had a few small glitches where my jerrican would get stuck behind the valve when trying to pick it up.

    Really solid overall!

      Wow, first time hearing that. Was it like a bit of a graphic glitch or something permanent and kinda gamebreaking?

      Still, I'm really glad you enjoyed it :) All this feedback will really help for future jams

        It was like the thing was on the ground but it was behind the valve, I usually could pick it up in one of two tries

    Neat idea! but kinda stressful - I guess that's the point lol. I played without a time limit at first since I wasn't sure what the game was gonna be like, after I won I didn't really feel like trying again with a timer 😅

    Hi, I played the game in stream: https://youtu.be/QJG0bZJKyJU?t=7840

    Now I liked the game, it was well executed :) I was horrible at beginning, but later I got used to game mechanic, though I played only with 'no time'.

      Hey thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

      I really, really appreciate seeing someone playing on video. Made me see some mistakes that could've made the experience more accessible and hooking.

      That is much better than any moonshine!

    I won on hard mode, I'm a rich propector! :) Worked pretty well and was interesting for the 5 minutes I played. I don't think this game should be expanded beyond that though, don't think it could keep my attention span. Unlike Havik, I thought the game was fairly well balanced as is.

    Lovely game! Very cute asthetic. It's actually quite challenging which was nice. I managed to finish with 5:58 left.

    Difficulty wise - maybe increase the mount of resources needed for the crafting part, or decrease the time it is ready/waiting before it goes bad. Something like that, instead of just changing the time limit.

    I don't really have anything negative to say - enjoyed playing it, very well done :)

      Thank you very much!! Some other complaints are based on the difficulty simplicity. Giving the limited time of the jam I didn't manage to fully get my hands on it, but these are helping me learn for future jams :)

    This was a really cool idea. The allowances are really tight with some of the actions, which really amps up the difficulty. It was nice to have dificulty options.

    Great work!

    Scope was perfect, gameplay was innovative and fun, art was great. All around very good entry.

    I liked the flavour of this game. Making moonshine from moonlight was really lovely. I liked the mechanic of controlling both characters. Felt like overcooked. Art was also charming. I found the game fun! Hard to put into words but I just liked the vibe.

    I had a lot of fun with this game! My only complaint is that the 10 minute time limit is VERY high. I think it'd be more fun having to fill six barrels in something like three minutes.

    Neat Idea, very fun to play. In my opinion the way difficulty was handled wasn't very fun way though. Just giving a 10 minute time limit felt a little boring. Otherwise it's pretty cool.
