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 while it's cheap! You'll get automatic updates at no extra cost whenever more chapters are released.

Desura Digital Distribution

As always, I hope you enjoy the game, and please let me know what you think using the "survey" button in the game's main menu, emailing, or tweeting to @Luminesca!

Thank you!

Luminesca just received a donation of $200 from a very generous person on IndieGoGo! That person is now a Project Sharer meaning they have access to my Unity project folder, they can have a poke around and maybe have a go at building some of their own levels.

Check out the other perks you can get (the rest are a bit more affordable!) on

Hey guys, love the gameplay trailer. Reminds me heavily of "Aquaria" and the recently released "Undergarden" with some "Limbo" style graphics thrown in for good measure.

Are you guys planning on defining the character more? I like what I see in your top profile image, but the character I see in gameplay looks a bit like a tall version of Google's Android. Just curious, I doubt it would matter in the long run, but I really like the sea-monkey style of the dude up top.

Tracking, and good luck from a fellow Unity dev!

Yes, the character model in-game is just a place holder for a finished, fully animated model.

Thanks for the feedback!

It really depends on what Unity Technologies decide to do with Unity. Linux support has been requested by over 5000 people ( and UT are often good at listening to their community, so the answer is "quite possibly" but unfortunately it's out of my hands.

There were good news on this topic recently:

Unity developer has confirmed that linux version is in development:

Just hope that this would be done sooner than later and the exporter would be ready before your game is released, so we would see it also on linux natively :)

Awesome, thanks for the info. I will certainly consider Linux distribution depending on costs and available funding at the time. The same goes for iOS.

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.
