Lumen is a platform-puzzle video game where the player assumes control of a girl trapped in a world of nightmare as she tries to make her escape. With the sole help of her camera, she will have to dodge traps, run away from her enemies and use her photographs to change the world that surrounds her.
The game was developed by a team of students at Thousand Cranes Studio for their Masters Degree project. The graphics are amazing and gameplay is really innovative. The little girl who is given a camera uses it to move through her environment. You use this camera to alter the levels. From using the flash to show “hidden” objects, to developing photos and moving the shots around or shaking them to move obstacles.
This little gorgeous game is painfully short, look more like a tech-demo, but is worth the time you play. After all, it's a students project, looks extremely gorgeous with interesting game mechanics and exceptionally well done.
Genre: 3D Puzzle Platform
