CONCEPT


Lume is a fantasy action RPG with directional combat, that takes place in an underground world powered by magical gems (lumes). 
You play as Remessar, whose soul is captured in a Lume, held by a high mage who demands your obedience.  

 

Dont Get Bored With your Sword

An Engaging Combat Experience


Combat in Lume is designed to be skill based. No single button smashing block and attack or repetitive memorized skill rotation. You have to stay focused and get your sword in the right position for every action with a 360 degree radial. You will get better with practice and it will feel rewarding.

As your skill increases you will take on many opponents at once. Focus on hitting your blocks and you will not be overwhelmed, or dodge away and reset. 

 

 

Powerful weapons

unique inventory AND slot System


Each weapon type drastically effects how you fight. They have various attack ranges, speeds, radius, power etc. Please don’t try to block a warhammer with a dagger!

You can switch between your two weapon sets on the fly to adapt to various situations. Any weapon you see an opponent carrying, you can take from them.  You can replace what you are carrying or send the item to your soul stone. 

Weapons and armor can be modified to hold enchanted lumes with powerful abilities. While often devastating, these require timing and strategy to trigger. They wont save you if your basic skills are lacking. 

 

Story and Setting

An immersive world to discover


The surface is uninhabitable.  Lumes were discovered as a source of energy and power to survive underground.  They were hoarded by a select few that became the rulers of civilization. 

These mages keep most of the powerful effects of the lumes to themselves and they restrict the study of enchantment, so there is no competition to their rule.  Still, there are rebellious enchanters driven by awe and curiosity that try to keep up with the innovations of the mages or make their own.

 

What are lumes?

  • Gems mined deep underground that glow with colorful energy
  • Currency of civilization, value is based on weight
  • Used or abused by enchanters to perform specific instructions
  • Main energy source, providing everything from lighting, heating to levitating platforms
  • When enchanted with useful combat abilities, they can be embedded into weapons/armor to be called upon by the wielder
  • Soul stones are large round lumes that the high mages enchanted to hold a soul captive

 

One enchantment the high mages developed solidified their tyranny.  They created lumes that could trap a soul, provided they were there to catch it leaving a body at the time of death. They found they could spawn this soul into the world and it would materialize in its original body but instead of being ‘alive’ it exists completely on lume energy and is linked to the stone it was captured in. 

Since these captured people can be respawned infinitely unless their stone is destroyed, the mages threaten them with eternal torture until their will breaks and they become obedient servants. It is on the backs of an army of these servants that the civilization maintains a high level of underground luxury. 

You are one of these poor souls, not really alive or dead, but still feeling things. What will you do? Does freedom mean destroying your soul stone or being the master of your choices? Nothing seems possible under the boot of the mages, but patience will allow you to discover powers and unlock new possibilities.
