! Ambermoon was the second part of the unfinished Amber Trilogy (Amberstar, released in 1992, being the first).

Description: In Ambermoon, the player plays as the grandson of the hero of Amberstar. The grandfather of the player explains at the beginning of the game that his presumed-dead companion spoke to him in a dream of a new threat to the land of Lyramion. He consequently sends the player on a journey to Newlake, where he can speak with his old companion. During this adventure, the player journeys through not only the islands of Lyramion, but the moons of the game world as well. The game world is very large, and the player interacts with many non-player characters, some of whom become his companions.

Ambermoon was a major success for Thalion, but it ultimately failed to prevent the company's collapse, which occurred before they were able to release the final part of the planned trilogy. Part of the Thalion team went on to Blue Byte, which produced the graphically-similar game Albion, effectively a sort of unofficial sequel to Ambermoon.

Ambermoon was only ever released in German for the Amiga. Although planned and developed the English version was never published. The last beta (v1.07) of the English version was released many years later in 1998 through the Thalion Webshrine. Also DOS and Atari ST versions were planned, but never completed.(wiki)
