Star Drifters and 2Dynamic Games have announced that the roguelite Lumencraft (which has been available in early access on PC) will be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime next year, alongside their latest update.
Take a look at the trailer below:
The year is 2221. The planet’s surface became uninhabitable over a century ago. Today the remains of humanity struggle to survive without electricity and light. Dreams of a better future had withered a long time ago, but a recently discovered mineral brought a spark of hope. Lumen, a crystal of high energy potency, can be the last chance for a struggling civilization. This mineral can drastically increase humanity’s odds of survival.
A team of Scouts, highly specialized miners, has ventured deep below the ground. It’s almost impossible to survive there. They established a settlement near the estimated deposits of Lumen. Their mission objective is seemingly simple: excavate and collect the precious mineral. However, getting back with it to the surface alive is another story altogether. And no one has lived to tell that tale yet… Impossibly hostile caverns have proven to be a nearly impenetrable barrier so far, but they hold the key to rejuvenating the fading civilization.
Players can now experience Lumencrafts` tunnels like never before with roguelike procedurally generated maps, offering unique playthroughs and endless replayability. You would never know what great fortune or great danger lies ahead of you, with each level including tunnels, ore patches, enemy waves, and treasures. Luckily enough, your regular robust arsenal has been extended with a new powerful weapon, Lumenal Discharger, launching an unstoppable lightning beam that consumes Lumen ammo. The Giga Update is the best occasion to date for all scouts, veterans, and newcomers to test their skills in Lumencraft!
Key features of the Giga Update:
- Procedural maps: from baked handcrafted maps to 100% procedurally generated roguelike levels!
- New weapon: Lumenal Discharger – a dramatic armament charged with a lightning beam.
- New languages: the game is now available in French, Spanish and Russian.
- Improvements and fixes: various UI, VFX, and sound changes.
