Today Brass Monkey is pleased to announce a real treat. Free for the first time on the interwebs, Chapter 1 of Luminesca (alpha).
In Luminesca you take the roll of a small sea creature named Lum. Lum, having recently grown up from his larval state, discovers that his colony is being impacted by a giant, ancient machine that comes to life and begins to consume all of the surrounding water. Lum must navigate the various corners of his world, using only his bioluminescent light to guide him and manipulate his environment and find the heart of the machine that threatens his world.
The first chapter of Luminesca is only a brief prologue, and shows only the tip of what is obviously a rich ecology of both threatening and benign inhabitants, all affected by the events Lum is trying to understand and perhaps change. Lum will encounter adults and larvae of his own species, strange bioluminescent plants and even a few predators in the murky depths as he solves puzzles and speaks to other inhabitants of his world.
We also ask that if you enjoy the game, you take a moment to vote for it on Steam Greenlight.
