AND

Lumino City – the 2015’s BAFTA winner for the PC, AND and iOS game – is a sequel to Lume from 2011. Both games were developed by the British studio State of Play Games – the fathers of the game KAMI and various animations, such as the anti-AIDS production called Stigmatisation.

Plot

The action kicks off where the firsts part ends. Lumi – the original’s heroine – does not get to enjoy her grandfather’s rescue for too long, as once again he gets abducted. Without much thinking, she sets off on yet another dangerous journey during which she will have to fight against the odds in order to get her grandpa back.

Mechanics

This is an adventure title emphasising logic elements. During gameplay, you travel through a strange city and solve various puzzles. For example, in order to push the story forward, you need to find a button responsible for turning a house upside down, manipulate a mechanism which controls an elevator, or repair a broken device using the items you have. The title features not only the city, but also some other fantastic locations, such as a flying garden or a mansion carved in stone.

Technical aspects

Lumino City released on PC, AND and iOS is different from other titles because of its visuals. Working for about three years, the creators crafted models of characters and buildings from paper and glue, and then transferred them to the virtual world. In the end, the title features unique 2,5D graphics.

"Playability matters, not graphics" is often the justification for poor visuals. Graphics, however, can be much more than beautiful or ugly. It can also be ingenious, intriguing, and unusual, and these are the examples of the most unique games.
