Lux is a first person puzzle game. The game is set in a steam punk/futuristic universe. An unknown force is consuming all light sources throughout this universe. Light has therefore become a commodity, and light-hunters scour the galaxies to collect what little light they can find, for both trade and survival. The player wields 'Tulip' a light-manipulation device. This can reflect, absorb, mix and emit light with a varying degree of focus. Reflecting allows the player to alter the angle and intensity of the light beam. Absorbing allows the player to store two colours in Tulip and discharge these colours of light. The player can also mix the colours, for example if Tulip absorbs Blue and Green light, the player can mix these two creating Cyan light which can then be discharged. This device is used in the completion of puzzles which progressively become more complex. Take on the role of a light bounty- hunter who sets out to discover the reason for the light’s disappearance....

This is an updated download of the original demo and is a much more playable, streamlined experience. Although no new game-play has been added yet, we hope you find it to be an improvement of this short demonstration of our ideas. This release is simply a demonstration of the core idea behind Lux and acts as a platform using the ‘Lux Engine’ to test the core game idea in-game. The demo is more of a ‘proof of concept’ as opposed to a fully working game, however we decided to share our progress so far. We have more complex and challenging puzzles designed which we hope to implement into the game in the future. But for now we hope you enjoy this short demonstration of our work on Lux and that it gives you an insight into our ideas behind the game. We hope to hear your thoughts on the project. Thank you for playing.

The improvements are as follows:

  • Added text hints to explain mechanics
  • Faster walk/run speeds
  • Faster light charge times
  • Improved HUD
  • Many small bugs have been swashed (rest their souls)
