What's a Lumini? Lumini is a 'flow adventure' game, by game development team Speelbaars, about an exotic planet destabilised by the near extinction of a race of creatures called 'Lumini'. It was released on September 3rd 2015 for PC, Mac and Linux. For more info about the game, visit lumini-game.com or check out the Steam page.
What was your role in the team? I worked on Lumini from September 2013 as a Producer and Game Designer / Developer. My main focus was the control of the swarm of Lumini: their formations, how they build up momentum, how they move, etcetera.
Tell me more! The original demo was released about a year and a half before the full release and, despite being in a pre-alpha state, got great feedback and was featured in articles by Rock, Paper, Shotgun and Control Magazine, to name a few. Since then, Speelbaars teamed up with publisher Rising Star Games and promoted the game at both local and international events, such as Gamescom and Momocon. The release of Lumini was met with positive feedback and got picked up by sites like Kotaku and IndieGames.com.
