We’re Luminawesome Games, a small team of four core members based in Vancouver, Canada, and we’re very excited to announce that our 3D puzzle platformer, Lumote: The Mastermote Chronicles, it’s smashing, banging and bouncing coming to Xbox One today! Doing Lumote It has been a true labor of love. It is, without a doubt, our passion project. We’re extremely proud to see what started out as an Unreal Global Game Jam winning project finally launch on the Xbox Store!

The game is set in the Great Depths, a sprawling aquatic world filled with bioluminescent creatures known as ‘Motes’ who spend their lives in the depths of the bioverse, living to the beat of the electronic soundscape. In the game, you play as Lumote, a cute, squishy, ​​bioluminescent creature on a mission to overthrow the Mastermote. To do so, you’ll need to descend through a wide series of maze-like platforms and take control of the world’s inhabitants in your quest to take control.


As you can see from the images here, the game is full of vibrant neon colors and has a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere (and soundtrack), and we hope it will present players with a series of fairly color-based puzzles. smart to navigate.

So let’s dive into the bioverse and take a closer look at some of the key features found within. Lumote: The Mastermote Chronicles.


Complex and evolving puzzles

The game revolves around solving a series of separate puzzle rooms, which increase in complexity with each Mote you encounter. Once you complete your first match, players can switch roles and take on an even more complex series of puzzles, like the Mastermote!

Take the control

‘Possession’ is the core mechanic found within the game, this refers to Lumote’s ability to take control of the world’s inhabitants to help solve puzzles. This is what allows Lumote to truly interact with the world around him.

Each Mote has a unique set of abilities, which players can continually discover as they progress through the game. At first, players will encounter the ‘Dumbat’, a strange little block that powers any other Mote it rests on. Combining this with the friendly sea slug-like creature, the ‘Hover Mover’, allows players to transport ‘Dumbat’ wherever they see fit to complete the puzzle.

We like to think of Motes as cute, luminescent ‘tools’ to help Lumote take over the world and topple the mighty Mastermote!

In the game, players will smash, kick, and bounce around the world around them. Lumote is extremely curious, very inquisitive and adorable! You may start the game because of the puzzles, but we hope you’ll stay because of the lovable Lumote, with whom we wanted to present an emotional connection with players through non-verbal expressions.

the greatest depths

The Great Depths is a unique massive environment with over 50 puzzles separated by towers. Each of these towers marks players’ mastery of a specific Mote and unlocks a new set of puzzles to explore. There are no loading screens. Instead, the world has been designed specifically using our motor – an original engine built from the ground up for Lumote – so players can stand anywhere and see all the progress they’ve made and all they have left to do.

Within this world, we have purposely created a contrast between the ominous darkness that surrounds each level and the luminous blue and red pathways. Everything that glitters is of great importance, and the vibrancy of the environment relates to the level of importance something has within the puzzle itself. This, along with the audio design, enhances the organic yet cybernetic feel of the bioluminescent aquatic world in which Lumote resides.

We encourage players to stop at any point within Lumoteand enjoy everything around them – it’s such a visually appealing and highly immersive world, one that we hope players can enjoy, and even be inspired by.

In the greatest depths lies the cutest and most unlikely hero! Lumote: The Mastermote Chronicles is available starting today on the Xbox Store.
