About

(Trailer music by Jamal Green)

Click here to see a better quality version of our video on YouTube.

Luman is a stylised, fast-paced platformer about an irritatingly cheerful, luminous lad and a bad, broken bayonet bulb. In the game you play as Luman, a jovial light bulb who unwittingly ends up with the difficult task of bringing the once proud Uncandescent to justice. You will meet amazingly deep two-dimensional characters and sentient light emitting objects, face psychotic broken bulbs, troubled celebrities and the most fearsome obstacle of all – the ordinary wall (seriously, you will die if you run into walls, you are made of glass!)

 If you’re a fan of light related puns this game is sure to crack you up!

 He suffers from mild psychosis, is unpredictable and very sensitive. The "Unconventional hero". Through Luman you will be able to experience his fragility and the fragility of all the Glowmosapiens that live in his world. 

 Will'O, your guidance through dark times. Listen closely, he might have something helpful to say. Will'O will function as our not so helpful tutorial/guide throughout the game.

What can one really say about a murderous, crazy and strange villain? Besides the fact that he is a complete psychopath,Uncadescent lost his bulb, this sent him into a murderous spree with an unknown objective. What will he do next?

We're on Greenlight! Please feel free to give us a like to further help our game develop. 

This is an early example the credits level where the names of all backers will be stored for all time.

Risks and challenges

Developing a game requires more than merely artistic ingenuity and technical insight. The Life&Dev team is aware of the fact that a game needs to meet the needs of the community or else it won’t survive. Luman is being developed very quickly and since the start of development, there hasn’t been much time for the team to generate the ideal amount of public interest on social media. We really want to get our game on Android and iOS and achieving this stretch-goal may require more effort than we originally anticipated.

Life&Dev is a relatively young team and the gaming market is very competitive. We’re hoping that we can compete well with the other developers and that our Kickstarter page reflects the quality and integrity of our company.

On the positive side, our team is quite effective and doing very well. We have years of experience in gaming and media and are confident in our ability to create a game people will love!
