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!

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.

looks very interesting. there is a goal to be achieved in this game? € 3.99 for a good Linux game are a good investment, as well as an Alpha/Beta Version. Bought. Thank You!

There is a goal which becomes apparent as you follow the story. The first chapter is quite open for you to explore, but later you'll become aware of a goal that needs to be fulfilled. Trying not to spoil too much!

Thank you very much for your support!

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.
