There’s a moment in Lumencraft’s debut trailer that absolutely sold me on its concept. Between all the bug shooting and rock-blasting particle effects, it’s a simple river of physics-based lava that looks like the biggest threat, trickling its way into every tunnel you dig, overflowing into every moat you make.
Lumencraft developer 2Dynamic Games describes it as a top-down shooter with tower defense elements like turrets to fend off huge swarms of underground bugs. You’re humanity’s last hope to obtain the precious Lumen minerals, which store up enough energy to stave off extinction. Like all macguffins, you’re not the only one after the Lumen minerals, or the only one willing to fight for them.
