Base-building, tower defense and digging — Lumencraft has it all

By - | Views: 23,396

Lumencraft is a pretty gorgeous top-down blending of base-building, where you need to set up defensive towers and a whole lot of digging. Developed with full Linux and Steam Deck support using Godot Engine, it's easily one of my indie favourites from this year and it just left Early Access as a full game.

Imagine a bit of Deep Rock Galactic top-down with base-building, and that sort-of sums up the kind of experience to expect from it. Honestly it's good, and you can end up seemingly just blinking and hours have gone by while you're playing. The new update to the full release also brings with it a full single-player campaign with various missions, a new hub area between missions and lots more.

Oh, I played the demo for this at a recent Next Fest. It didn't quite grab me, I think I just don't really like top-down perspective or something. It seemed a decent-quality game other than that.

Oh, it's released now? Nice. I already purchased it from GOG during development. Woot!
