Lumini, a Relaxing Flow-Based Adventure, Launches on Steam

Developed by a nine-person Dutch university team, this wonderfully relaxing game is an ambitious labor of love set to a beautiful and soothing soundtrack

Lumini is a unique and soothing flow-based adventure from Rising Star Games in partnership with Netherlands-based developer Speelbaars. In it, you control a swarm of innocent little creatures called (what else?) Lumini.

The Lumini return to their home planet after an absence lasting thousands of years only to find themselves in a hostile environment. With your guidance, they need to find out what’s happened, try to restore the planet’s peace and harmonic balance, and heal the heart of this world.

Sail your Lumini through beautiful, time-worn landscapes, encounter mystical and bewildering creatures and solve ancient puzzles, accompanied by a beautifully soothing OST.

Gijs Driesenaar, the game’s composer: The music feels like a movie soundtrack but at the same time it has a lot of interactivity; it follows the player’s pace and actions, and the events that happen in the game.  Music and sound is a very important aspect of Lumini, because it’s a relaxing game, it has a lot of emotional events and the game doesn’t tell the story through words, so I tried to tell the story through the music as well. And because there is no direct story telling, the only way to trigger deep emotions is through sound and music.

Lumini for PC/Windows, Mac and Linux can now be yours on Steam. Who can’t use a little soothing these days?

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
