Lumo is an isometric, arcade adventure game, of the same ilk as revered 8Bit classics such as Head Over Heels, Knightlore, Alien 8 and Solstice. You play the part of a young wizard, lost in the depths of his own castle. Explore more than 100 rooms during your adventure, solve puzzles, collect runes and spells, and work your way back to the safety of your own bedroom. Lumo is being developed with the Unity game engine and is targetting release for Mac, PC & Linux toward the end of 2014.
I've been too quiet lately. Sorry, I know I should have posted more. The end of September was spent polishing up the first section of the game; fixing bugs, adding audio, and getting some playtest feedback, before it was sent off to some VIPs that are interested in helping me get Lumo out. Unfortunately that meant that not a lot of new stuff was happening.
October's been a different story, I've had 3 weeks of just putting together new rooms for the "Fantasy Zone" section in the middle of the game. Most of these are homages to some popular Isometric games from the past, and I've had a lot of fun making them. But each is effectively it's own little game, so there's been a lot of work involved.
Here're a few example screenies from that section of the game:

Finally got the Nvidia drivers working on my old MBP under Linux. Now have a baseline machine to test how well Lumo runs on Ubuntu.

@evilpaul_atebit you don't have to mark every beat unless it's drifing all over the shop

@evilpaul_atebit it'll change warp dims of the track to the end without the marker remaining and you can scrub to the next drift and mark

@evilpaul_atebit in general I clear all the warp markers, drop one at the start check alignment and drop marker where it drifts, then remove
