Luminesca is an underwater exploration game which follows the story of a little creature called Lum.
Lum's colony comes under threat when a vast, ancient machine grinds into motion and starts to consume all the surrounding water. His adventure takes him from all corners of his environment to the heart of the machine, encountering a rich ecology of inhabitants and learning some valuable lessons about the world around him.
I'm very happy to announce the arrival of Chapter 2 on Windows, Mac and Linux!
I've taken a lot of feedback on board so I hope you'll enjoy exploring the new murky depths!
Anyone who has pre-ordered the game through Desura can launch the client and grab the automatic update (standalone zip versions are available too).
If you haven't already pre-ordered it, the game is 50% off while it's still in alpha stages so be sure to get your hands on a copy from Desura or luminesca.com while it's cheap! You'll get automatic updates at no extra cost whenever more chapters are released.
Highest Rated (2 agree) 10/10
I think if this game was complete and had 2-5 hours of gameplay that I wouldn't be able to stop until I was finished. It was a nice breath of fresh air from the permadeaths i've become used to (not to say this game won't go that direction eventually).
The ambience reminded me a bit of Aether with the uncanny feeling and loneliness. Also, the subtle story telling (backstory) was great and I hope to learn more of my journey.
I hope that updates continue to happen and that another chapter appears soon.

If you've been wondering "Is Luminesca dead?" the answer is "Hell no!". It's just having a nap, and will feel bright-eyed and refreshed soon
