Throughout the game, Desta’s (they/them) antagonists aren’t really enemies, they’re broken relationships. To bring these characters back on their side, they need to successfully win them over by playing dodgeball. Moth needed the trailer to give insight into the mechanics of the game without becoming too needlessly detailed.
Moth opted to show Desta being challenged by three increasingly difficult challenges. For the second ’enemy’, The Shield Bearer, we wanted to highlight the teamwork between Desta and their friend, James. Within the game, characters have special abilities and Desta must work with these friends to navigate their way around obstacles within each level and establish the best way to hit the opposing characters.
