Lumote is a Mote different from others; inquisitive, and with an “eye” on power. When the shift causes the Great Depths to turn red, Lumote sets out on an epic quest to return the world to blue. To do so, Lumote must learn to take control of the Great Depths inhabitants and gain mastery of it’s puzzles in order to defeat the greatest Mote of them all… the Mastermote!
Squish, bop and bounce through the world around you. Lumote is extremely curious, highly inquisitive and adorable! You might start the game for the puzzles, but you’ll stay for the beyond cute Lumote, who manages to deliver an emotional connection to players through non-verbal expressions!
The world Lumote lives in is a single, massive environment with numerous puzzles separated into towers. Each tower marks your mastery of a specific Mote and unlocks a new set of puzzles to explore as you descend, heading deeper into the Great Depths. After mastering all the motes from the first world, players will be put to the test in a masterclass, taking control of the Mastermote in a different world!
Set in a 3D world full of puzzles and adventure, clever and logical level design eases players in the role of Lumote, and its connection with the world, whilst increasing the complexity with each Mote you meet. The entire world and every puzzle are visible at all times.
A stunning score accompanies you on a majestical electronica journey, as The Great Depths communicates through music to inform you of key moments and the emotional states of Lumote.
