Liberate the World from Darkness in Illuminaria, a Mesmerizing and Strategic
Resource Management Game


Control a swarm of intelligent robots, strategically build bases, mine for precious resources,
forge golems, and defend from darkness to bring back the light


Selva Interactive is pleased to introduce their new game, Illuminaria, along with the first official game trailer. In Illuminaria players will be tasked with bringing back light to a world overtaken by darkness. They’ll control a swarm of intelligent robots while mining precious resources, managing multiple caves simultaneously, forging golems, and fighting perolis enemies that stand in their way.

First Official Trailer: Youtu.be


“We wanted to create a game that felt more accessible than typical strategy or base-management games which can often be overwhelming to the player,” said Alhvi Balcarcel, co-founder of Selva Interactive. “One key way we accomplished this is through creating clear objectives with goal-oriented, engaging gameplay, as opposed to a typical sandbox setting.”

In Illuminaria, players need to be strategic as they explore ruins and regions where they’ll build warehouses and thoughtfully place resources. They’ll research new technologies, go on expeditions, and activate beacons to open up new pathways. Players will also build golems with the goal of being able to liberate the final cave from darkness. They’ll need to be on high alert and build a strong defense because darkness will fight back, sending enemies to steal resources and attack.

In addition, because players need to manage multiple bases simultaneously, it’s important for them to plan out which resources go where and consistently keep an eye out on their defense and enemies at large. They’ll alternate back-and-forth between their various bases ensuring resources continue getting produced without disruption.

Throughout the game, players will also uncover the lore behind how darkness took over and why it’s their job to bring back light. They’ll also delight as they command the robots who can perform complicated tasks with simple instructions, who do so in a dynamic and mesmerizing manner.

Illuminaria has been funded and made possible by WINGS. For more information about Illuminaria please visit the press kit at: Illuminariagame.com or their Steam page at: Store.steampowered.com
