about Lumenox Games

Lumenox Games is an indie game developer currently working on their first title - an artistic teleportation platformer called Aaru's Awakening. We are a team of 8 men and women, with our HQ based in Iceland. Aaru's Awakening has been in development for almost a year and will be released Q1-Q2 this year. Our mission is to make Aaru's Awakening a truly memorable game for everyone, creating an experience unlike others with an unique art style and intuitive gameplay. Our aim as a company, is to keep making original games whilst staying indie.

Aaru's Awakening is a hand drawn 2D action platformer. The game requires players to make the most of Aaru's two mobile abilities - teleportation and charging - as he travels through the world of Lumenox to defeat an evil entity. These two abilities are at the heart of every level design throughout the game.

The world of Lumenox consists of a balance between Dawn, Day, Dusk and Night. But the balance is being compromised by a dark menace from the domain of Night. As a last hope Dawn sends out his champion, Aaru, to travel all the way to Night’s domain and restore the balance.

The game is created with a transcendent, dreamy art style that is drawn by hand - only colouring and animations are done with the help of computers. The music is carefully crafted to further enhance your experience with dreamy hymns, that capture the mood of the game. The storyline is expressed through cinematic cut scenes.
