Hello, Scouts!
Dynamite is the most appropriate mining tool for this job. In the future, the survival of humanity depends on a group of miners who venture into the bowels of Earth to extract a unique resource called Lumen, also known as the last hope of humankind. But digging equipment is not enough, as the dark tunnels are infested with swarms of nightmarish creatures. There will be no time to rest. Prepare to protect your underground base from the invasion of bloodthirsty creatures at all costs. Dive into the dark underworld and experience the struggles of futuristic miners on April 13th, when Lumencraft enters Steam Early Access.

Our game is a combination of a top-down shooter, mining and tower defense game. Dynamic lighting and almost unlimited environment destruction allow to build a unique atmosphere in Lumencraft’s survival and tactical gameplay. Fans of the classic Alien Breed or newer titles like Darkwood or Riftbreakers should feel at home in the dangerous mines of future Earth.

Watch Lumencraft’s EA date announcement trailer:



The year is 2221. The planet's surface became uninhabitable over a century ago. Today the remains of humanity struggle to survive without electricity and light. Dreams of a better future had withered a long time ago, but a recently discovered mineral brought a spark of hope. Lumen, a crystal of high energy potency, can be the last chance for the struggling civilization. This mineral can drastically increase humanity's odds of survival.

A team of Scouts, highly specialized miners, has ventured deep below the ground. It’s almost impossible to survive there. They established a settlement near the estimated deposits of Lumen. Their mission objective is seemingly simple: excavate and collect the precious mineral. However, getting back with it to the surface alive is another story altogether. And no one has lived to tell that tale yet… Impossibly hostile caverns have proven to be a nearly impenetrable barrier so far, but they hold the key to rejuvenate the fading civilization.

Game Features:

  • Dynamic lights and pixel-perfect interaction with a fully destructible terrain.
  • Atmosphere of dread created through impactful sound design and unique 2Dynamic lighting system.
  • Defending an underground settlement by direct combat and turrets.
  • Highly efficient and immensely satisfying digging mechanics.
  • Various futuristic technologies will allow to improve both your digging and killing potential.
  • Map editor and full Steam Workshop support.
  • Local co-op with Steam Remote Play support for online sessions.
  • Steam Deck support.

Lumencraft is now being presented during the European Game Showcase at GDC in San Francisco, CA.

Lumencraft will be available for all players in Early Access on April 13th.
