Curator review

Most base building games make you farm materials by building a factory and then waiting until the resources build up but not this game, in this game you have a drill so that you can farm your own.

Full review

Lumencraft is an innovative combination of a top-down shooter and a base-building game with tower defense elements. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity struggles to survive without electricity and light, players embark on a mission to find Lumen, a crystal that holds the key to mankind's survival.

The game offers unique gameplay mechanics that set it apart from other base building games. Instead of waiting for resources to accumulate in a factory, Lumencraft allows players to use drills to farm materials and dig tunnels in the underground environment. This adds an exciting element of exploration as you navigate through dark caves and face off against swarms of enemies.

One impressive aspect of Lumencraft is its fully destructible environment. The developers have utilized original algorithms within the Godot Engine, transforming it into an incredible tool that allows every pixel of terrain to be destroyed. This level of interactivity makes for immersive gameplay as you strategically blast walls or illuminate tunnels with weapons and turrets.

In terms of game modes, Lumencraft offers various options tailored to different play styles. The 27-mission campaign provides an engaging narrative experience while procedurally generated maps offer roguelike challenges. Additionally, there is a map editor feature where players can create their own custom levels complete with moldable terrain and objects.

Whether playing solo or cooperatively with friends using Steam Remote Play or local shared screen mode, Lumencraft provides hours of thrilling gameplay accompanied by impactful sound design and atmospheric lighting effects created by 2Dynamic Games' unique lighting system.

If you're tired of traditional resource farming methods found in other base building games, I highly recommend giving Lumencraft a try. Its refreshing approach combining drill mechanics with intense shooting action creates an enjoyable gaming experience like no other!
