Lorn's Lure is an atmospheric narrative first-person platformer with novel climbing mechanics and modernized retro 3D graphics.

Leaving his home colony while tracking a mysterious glitch, an android finds himself in the midst of a vast and dangerous structure, completely hidden from his people's knowledge. Unable to go back, he must keep going to find out where he is being led... And why he left in the first place.


  • Dark foreboding atmosphere
  • Retro 90s PC graphics, with a modern flair.
  • Uncover mysterious lore as you travel into the depths.
  • Jump, climb, slide, and scan your way around difficult challenges, using simple mechanics.
  • No "Parkour Ledges". Climb almost any vertical wall face using your pickaxes!
  • It's a tough game, but not frustrating! Mistakes are not punished by redoing lengthy sections.
  • Play fast or slow. Take in the sights as you traverse, or play as fast as a speed runner.

Hello Climbers

I've been working on a new level, but I don't want to reveal too much about it, so I'll just tease it a bit and then skirt around to other topics...

Ready for the Teaser?

That's it. That's all you get.

A New World Record Speedrun Dropped!

You've gotta check out this very nice, sub 9 minute run by who?? from the Discord community:

What else has been happening?

More Holistic Progress Update

I'm about 50% of the way through developing the levels at alpha/beta quality (roughly the quality of the existing demo). Once I'm done, the next goal is to make a new demo that hopefully will drop in Feb.

After that it's just a home stretch fixing bugs and improving the quality of level design and 3D art.

Stay tuned for more!
