Lumencraft is a top-down action shooter with tower defense elements. Emerge into a fully destructible environment where light and shadow play key roles. Build your base, dig some tunnels and find lumen - humanity's only chance for survival.


Lumencraft 6


The year 2221: More than two centuries ago, the surface of the planet became uninhabitable. The remnants of humanity struggle to survive without electricity and light. Dreams of a better future died long ago, but a recently discovered mineral has brought a spark of hope. Lumen, a crystal with high energy potency, may be the last chance for a struggling civilization. Scouts, brave miners, have been sent underground to a settlement near the Lumen deposits. New scouts continue to join this mission, but so far, no one has returned. It seems that the darkness of the underground holds more than just natural riches...


Fight for your survival. Enemies are going to raid your base so be careful and leave some turrets on the watch.

  • Defending the underground settlement by direct combat and the use of diversified turrets.
  • Highly efficient and satisfying digging mechanics.
  • Explosive weapons. Yes, we have dynamite.

Lumencraft 7


With a lot of effort and a set of original algorithms, 2Dynamic Games have transformed the open-source Godot Engine into a completely new tool. This allows every bit of terrain (pixel, as we used to call them) to be destroyed, and maps can be painted as if in a drawing program. What’s more?

  • Dynamic lights and pixel-perfect interaction with the fully destructible terrain.
  • Dread atmosphere created through the impactful sound design and a unique 2Dynamic lighting system.
  • Realistic simulations.

Lumencraft 3


Lumencraft will be in the Early Access stage, which means we will keep adding new features and polishing already implemented ideas. Stay tuned!

Is this game a further development of the Nocturnum concept?

Hi, not really. We didn't know about this project before you mentioned it :D But I think our concept is somewhat similar.

The reference of lumen made me think of the similarities. And the gameplay is also resembles the Nocturnum concept. Good luck to you! Looking forward playing your game!
