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....

Greetings all!

An update to Lux has just been uploaded which replaces the old version, so follow the links (or head to our download section) and download the new improved version of Lux!

Why not patch it you say?! Pah! We don't do patches! Away with your blasphemy! ... or more accurately we can't do patches yet, apologies, prototype engine and all.

This is a much more playable, streamlined experience. And 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. 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)

Let us know your thoughts :)

Who or What is that neat looking creature?
Will he be in game?

*Optimistic Hopes* Could we be him?
Look through other beams of light to mix his coloured vision to create other colours. that would be spectacular.

He is designed to be in-game yes. He is a statue that comes to life when light runs through his veins. It's your job to get that to happen. ;) We hope to implement him into puzzles in the game at some point in the future.

Well, my thoughts are... That... All the new things in this update are good. Fun stuff! =D This game could be the next portal(Except without the portals; you know what I mean.) Great work... Still a lot of bugs to work out, though.

Looks more like a goblin than a statue, but nice nonetheless. This Icon of yours made me realise (again) how different light color and paint color mix. You can surely create some very appealing quests on this basis, turning colors into light and vice-versa.
The game could become a real flagship for, err cranial development?
