Lumo – A charming little game I’m looking forward to in 2016

Searching through the Steam Greenlight I came across an interesting game called Lumo that has already been greenlit by the community (and thus ineligible for my Steam Greenlight Spotlight).

The description of the game on their Steam page reads:

Lumo is an isometric, arcade adventure game, of the same ilk as revered 8 Bit classics: Head Over Heels, Knightlore, Alien 8, Chimera and Solstice. You play the part of a young wizard, lost in the depths of a mysterious castle that’s part museum, part death-trap. Explore more than 150 rooms, solve physical puzzles, bring ancient machinery to life, collect runes & spells and uncover hidden areas as you work your way safely outside.
Being lost isn’t scary… it’s an adventure!

A nice and simple plot, go from room to room solving puzzles until you escape the castle, but with more than 150 rooms to explore I doubt it is going to be that simple.

The first thing that caught my eye about the game was how the rooms, which are nicely detailed, float against a stunning space/void backdrop creating a lovely effect that makes the rooms really stand out, all of which is made even better the lighting effects that look magnificent and really bring the environments to life.

And the little wizard looks adorable hopping around the rooms as you solve the puzzles.

Lumo is scheduled for release in early 2016 (so hopefully not too long now). I’ll be keeping a close eye on it for further developments.
