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....

I glitched to beat the final door puzzle. If you hold down the absorption key and move out of the light, the light in your gun does not diminish so I moved back and forth from the door to the bridge until I got the door open. Hopefully you can fix this.

wow that must have taken you ages! :P Its one of the many known issues with the prototype, hopefully they'll all be ironed out in due course. This 'demo' is more of an alpha build. Thanks for the feedback, it's always appreciated :)
