LUMEN: Lost Passages is a beautifully animated 2D metroidvania adventure that draws from Christian and Greek mythology and follows a Soul Warden who sets out to investigate why souls have stopped flowing into the Underworld.
Currently in development by Buttery Games, LUMEN: Lost Passages puts you in the shoes of a Soul Warden – a young demigod and one of the 12 apostles of Hades, who is tasked with making sure that souls make their way from the mortal realm to the Underworld. However, one day the flow of souls mysteriously stops, and while investigating, you discover that a group of Underworld monsters have united to break the cycle of life and death, with an aim of plunging the universe into a chaotic primordial state.
The monsters ganged up on you, stripped you of your powers and sent you to the mortal real to die. You now need to relight the seven flame passages, travel back to the Underworld and put an end to the chaos.
LUMEN: Lost Passages features fast paced combat that allows you to use a combination of weapons, spells and abilities to fight your way back into the Underworld. There are three classes of weapons (light, medium and heavy) and there are 10 unique spells to choose from, all of which can be enhanced by powerful relics. You’ll use your abilities as you explore the game’s large non-linear world, full of passageways to unlock and secrets to discover.
