The Lumencraft description:
The year is 2221. The planet’s surface became unlivable 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, is a crystal of high energy potency. This can also be the last chance for the laboring population. This mineral can greatly increase humanity’s odds of survival.
A team of Scouts, highly specialized miners, has gone deep below the ground. It’s almost impossible to survive there.
They built a base near where the deposits of Lumen exist. Since their mission in Lumencraft is very simple. Dig up and collect the precious mineral.
However, getting back with it to the surface alive is also an issue. Since no one has lived to tell that tale yet. This also means facing nasty hostile caverns in Lumencraft. Which are proving to be a very strong barrier so far. But they also hold the key to rebuild the fading population.
What to expect from the game:
- Defending an underground base by direct combat. All while using a wide array of turrets in the top-down shooter.
- Highly efficient and very effective digging mechanics.
- Explosive weapons.
- Dynamic lights and pixel perfect interaction. Along with the fully destructible terrain.
- A setting of dread created through the vibrant sound design. With a unique 2Dynamic lighting system.
- Tech tree that gives you a strong feeling of progress.
- Realistic physics simulations (just look at the lava!).
Lumencraft top-down shooter will debut in the Steam Next Festival. Expecting to arrive on October 1, 2021. Doing so in the form of a playable demo. This will be followed by a Steam Early Access debut in the coming months. Which is due to include support for both Linux and Windows PC.
