We are beyond excited to announce our upcoming game, Lumari! As we're still in the early stages of development, we want to share with you a glimpse of the world we're creating and the progress we've made so far.
What is Lumari, you ask?
It's a social sandbox adventure game that revolves around the bond between players and their Lumari - spirit creatures that are reflections of the world they inhabit. Our team has focused on four primary ideas:
Lumari at the center: Our spirit companions are the heart and soul of the game. We're exploring ways to deepen the bonds you form with your Lumari, allowing them to not only shape your adventures but also evolve and grow in their own ways. We’re thinking about persistence - what if your Lumari could journey alongside you for a lifetime?
An expansive and richly simulated world: We're crafting a world that feels authentic and alive, where Lumari exhibit distinct needs and desires, living in harmony with their surroundings, nefarious creatures, and impacts created by the players. Get ready to dive into a realm teeming with life!
Home is where the heart is: We want your relationships with your Lumari to feel just as warm and nurturing as those with your real-life family and pets. Whether it's gardening together, sharing playful moments, or building the ultimate sanctuary, your Lumari's presence should evoke a sense of coziness and belonging.
Social play at its finest: We firmly believe that human-driven narratives are the cornerstone of unforgettable experiences. With Lumari, players can come together to build, explore, and share in thrilling adventures, all while accompanied by their Lumari companions.
If this vision excites you as much as it does us, we'd love for you to join us on this journey. You can follow us on Twitter, sign up for our newsletter to stay updated on our progress, and even apply to be a part of our first playtest.
We can't wait to share more with you, and we hope to see you in the Lumari world soon!
