Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a small team and Lumencraft does not follow any specific game template. Having player's feedback during the development process will help us make Lumencraft a better game that will give the experience our players desire.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning for a release of the final game within one year from the initial early access release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will offer a progression system through nonlinear missions (campaign mode). We will expand the environment by adding more biome types. The main map will feature tunnels that allow the player to explore the cave system. We wish to populate the world with various map types that focus on specific play styles based on the players’ feedback.

We are also considering procedural maps and other multiplayer options.

Please check the DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP section and read more below.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Early Access offers multiple maps without progression between them (yet) and a map editor allowing to create own levels. There is also co-op mode available either using Steam Remote Play or locally on shared screen.

The game already allows for tens of hours of gameplay with first maps provided (grouped in sandbox, adventure and challenge categories) with all of the core features complete. Offering experience with build systems, resource management, and base defense. Sandbox maps offer the players unrestricted base expansion, resource collection, and continuous defense.

Map editor allows to create many game types (e.g. tower defense, action, survival or mix of them), define starting technologies/upgrades and of course the goals. We hope that the community will fill in the Steam Workshop with many great maps.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We appreciate players' support during the early access period, and we wish to reflect that by having a lower price than it will be after release. We plan to raise the price upon release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We wish to involve the community in the development process as much as possible. Players can provide us feedback and suggestions via in-game feedback form, Steam Discussions as well as our Discord server.”

About This Game

Lumencraft is a top-down action shooter with tower defense elements. Emerge into a fully destructible environment where light and shadow play key roles. Build your base, dig some tunnels and find lumen - humanity's only chance for survival.

KEY FEATURES


BECOME SAVIOUR OF MANKIND
The year 2221: More than two centuries ago, the surface of the planet became uninhabitable. The remnants of humanity struggle to survive without electricity and light. Dreams of a better future died long ago, but a recently discovered mineral has brought a spark of hope. Lumen, a crystal with high energy potency, may be the last chance for a struggling civilization. Scouts, brave miners, have been sent underground to a settlement near the Lumen deposits. New scouts continue to join this mission, but so far, no one has returned. It seems that the darkness of the underground holds more than just natural riches...



DRILL YOUR WAY TO VICTORY
Fight for your survival. Enemies are going to raid your base so be careful and leave some turrets on the watch.
  • Defending the underground settlement by direct combat and the use of diversified turrets.
  • Highly efficient and satisfying digging mechanics.
  • Explosive weapons. Yes, we have dynamite.



EXPLORE FULLY DESTRUCTIBLE ENVIRONMENT
With a lot of effort and a set of original algorithms, 2Dynamic Games have transformed the open-source Godot Engine into a completely new tool. This allows every bit of terrain (pixel, as we used to call them) to be destroyed, and maps can be painted as if in a drawing program. What’s more?
  • Dynamic lights and pixel-perfect interaction with the fully destructible terrain.
  • Dread atmosphere created through the impactful sound design and a unique 2Dynamic lighting system.
  • Realistic simulations. Just look at the lava!
  • Play with your friends in co-op mode either using Steam Remote Play or locally on shared screen :)



MAP EDITOR
Easily create stunning maps with moldable terrain and many of objects to choose from. Then, invite your friends to play in your custom map!

Map editor allows to create many game types (e.g. tower defense, action, survival or mix of them), define starting technologies/upgrades and of course the goals. We hope that the community will fill in the Steam Workshop with many great maps.

EARLY ACCESS
  • The game already allows for tens of hours of gameplay with first maps provided (grouped in sandbox, adventure and challenge categories) with all of the core features complete.
  • Lumencraft is now in the Early Access stage, which means we are still adding new features and polishing already implemented ideas.
  • Early Access offers multiple maps without progression between them and a map editor allowing to create own levels.
  • The full version will offer a progression system through nonlinear missions (campaign mode), which is not available yet.
  • For the full release we are also considering procedural maps and other multiplayer options.
  • Please look at the DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP section above to check our plans for the next months.
