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!

A let's play from eGamer South Africa :D

In hype for the release of chapter 2 :D I love this game, and I hope you remember the hands-on preview I did for it back at the beginning of the year =) This game is relaxing, looks absolutely beautiful, and is irresistibly cute! I can't wait for the release of chapter 2, you've done a wonderful job :)

I also really like the casual approach to the game. It's a game you play to wind down and relax, and that really separates it from other puzzle adventure games. There's almost nothing to dislike here, apart from the usual minor alpha bugs :)

Great job CrowbarSka, keep it up! I look forward to featuring Chapter 2 \;D?

I got the game for $15 under the name "LINUX users always pay more!" but it still shows up as "Anonymous" on the contributor chart :( Want to show how much Linux users pay~~

Thanks for the generous contribution! I see it listed there as Anonymous like you say. It's all handled by IndieGameStand I'm afraid so my advice would be to go through their Support section, here:

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.
