  • Summary: *** Finalist at IGF 2012: Excellence in Visual Art *** Lume: An illuminating puzzle adventure! Small and perfectly formed, introducing you to the perplexing world of Lume. The hit Indie game Lume is now available for iPhone in glorious remastered with higher detail for iPhone 4 and above, more sounds and an improved interface for touch devices.

    With a set built entirely out of paper and cardboard, and sumptuously filmed, Lume is a game with a style unlike any other.

    Power to your grandad’s house has failed. What’s more, he’s nowhere to be seen. Immerse yourself in Lume’s photoreal world, solve perplexing paper puzzles to help restore the power, and uncover a deeper mystery behind the blackout.

    This game forms Part 1 of a larger, ongoing story.

    All of this builds up into a feeling of sincerity rarely encountered in games. There is no hint of irony in Lume's message, and that makes it hard to disagree: self-sufficiency is admirable, and why shouldn't it be?

    The entire title is so memorable thanks to its unique style that I find it hard to forget the tiny house in which Lume takes place.

    A gorgeous to look at, cute and charming adventure game, yet far too short.

    Lume delivers a unique experience, with great visuals and atmosphere, but very poor in content.
  5. Mar 5, 2012
    A good technical sector and a great artistic direction is not supported by an adequate length and gameplay balancing. Lume fails to grab the player's attention.

    LUME is a unique puzzle experience that should delight adventure and puzzle fans. It's unique style and puzzle variety is only detracted by its constant crashing and relatively short game length.

    Lume shows signs of excellence but is over far too quickly.
