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.

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 LuminescaGame@gmail.com, or tweeting to @Luminesca!

Thank you!

Matt

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: Indiegamestand.uservoice.com

Looks so very nice. Can't wait for more.
For some reason the buttons to open browser windows wouldn't work here, though.

Are you running it on Linux? That appears to be a bug with Unity, unfortunately. It's still in its early stages so fingers crossed they will fix it at their end soon!

Right, I'm on Linux.
For the time being, could you put the URLs just in a readme.txt or something? I'd like to know what exactly you track before accepting that.

No problem, it's not like it's game-breaking. ;)
Thanks for the links, though.

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.
