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....

A video has been added for those who do not wish to download the demo. The video includes text to explain the basics of the game, as currently this prototype demo does not include text hints. If you plan to play the demo you might wish to view this video after you have played, as it includes footage of the entire demo and will show how the puzzles are completed.
We hope you enjoy watching and that it gives you an indication of our basic mechanics which we plan to build upon. If you have any questions about the game, please do not hesitate to ask.
In response to comments on controls, the full listing can be found in the readme file.
The basics are:
