Lumino City is a puzzle-adventure video game developed by State of Play Games and a sequel to 2011 title Lume.

Art style and plot

The game follows Lumi, a simple girl that lives with her grandad. One day the grandad gets kidnaped, and now she must go to the nearby Lumino City to find him.
The game is notable for its paper cut-out art style. While the main character is CGI, all of the environments are crafted by developers using cardboard, paper, wood, and other crafts materials.


Lumino City is a point-and-click adventure game with heavy emphasis on puzzle solving. The game uses a mouse to control Lumi and interact with objects. Her backpack serves the role of in-game inventory and fits many items required to solve in-game puzzles.
The game consists of several levels, each of them usually takes two-to-three screens. Some of them revolve around interacting with Lumino City’s townsfolks that asks Lumi for help in exchange for opening her way to the next level. Most of the game takes place in the city, so houses and streets are natural environments in the game. Aside from solving puzzles, some of which incorporate minigames in the vein of Machinarium or Samorost, some swinging and climbing sections require clicking certain objects at the right time.

Lumino City reviews and comments

Microsoft from French
---Français---I do not think of being made very far in the game but I wanted to write a criticism, so this review has to be taken as it because I do not have played to the game in its entirety Lumino city is a world where everything is in color , with its zones of lights and its part of darkness. You'Ve to resolve some riddles, there're not so hard, neither so easy. Generally, you've to help each other to move forward in the history and to understand what happen in their life. I'm quite surprised that despite his "innocent" drawing, the history even if it seems simple, really own some kind of matureness and intelligence. We havee to thank the authors for it:) Decorations were created in the hand then filmed from all angles to create a city miniaturized. A real esthetic success. We have almost the sensation of touch and feel the paper, the cardboard used for the constructions and to smell the odors of paints of decorations. The artists of State of play takes away us from computer generated images to return us in a reality of material where thing are built. A walk in an imagination centred towards the not violence and the reassurance. The game is enjoyable and visually pleasing. He does not shock the spirit and it is I believe one of its ambitions; to be restful. The city is perceived under various angles as we could see the world as well as the characters. It helps intuitively approach the riddles under various angles. Which enjoyment and which satisfaction to disentangle the intrigues in helper the characters to understand their situation and then to leave the light heart in definitive, a game skillfully builds which proposes an adventure which aims to be simple, with a character and a personality different from what I found generally in point'n ' click games. A playful experiment which offer you spending a good moment, solving logical riddles and which knows... It can be a beautiful adventure and of good memories. ---French---I don't think I'm going far in history but what I saw made me want to write this little criticism. She is therefore to take such as she since I have not played the game in her. Lumino city is a world of color, with its zones of light and its shadow parts. It's a game like point'n'click or you have to solve puzzles and other puzzles. They're not too hard or too easy. You have to have the eye because nothing indicates or click on the décor. Generally, you have to help each other to advance in history and understand what is happening in the city. I was quite surprised to see that under its aesthetic appearance quite "naive", the game even if the story seems simple, really possesses a maturity and a personal intelligence. We must thank the authors:) The decorations were created by hand and filmed from all angles to obtain a miniaturized city. A true aesthetic success one has the sensation of almost touching and smelling the paper and cardboard used for the constructions and smelling the smells of paintings of the decorations. State of play artists take us away from the worlds of synthesis to bring us back into a real or things are built of materials, a walk in an imaginary focused on non-violence and appeasement. The game is nice and visually pleasing. It does not shock the mind and it is I believe one of its ambitions; to be restful. The city is perceived from different angles as one could see the world as well as the characters. This intuitively helps to tackle puzzles from different angles. What joy and satisfaction to untangle the intrigues by helping the characters to understand their situation to leave then the light heart. In final, a skillfully built game that offers an adventure that is meant to be simple, with a character and a personality different from what I generally found in games of the genre point'n'click. A playful video experience that offers you to spend a good time, solve logical puzzles and who knows... can be a great adventure and fond memories.

What to say: to call it a mere game of harmlessness. A work of art! From the finely detailed graphics (and beautiful) to the connected stories that enliven the background theme, to the challenging puzzles at the right point, everything suggests the laborious commitment that underlies it. Nothing left to chance, everything makes sense. Finally the duration of the right game: I played many similar games and all unfortunately ended too soon, but this I completed after quite a few days. Really congratulations to the whole team!

Luckily I waited for it to be on offer and I pay just over 2, for non intuitive, unfortunately for most things we need the help of the book because some puzzles have no logic. If you play with the iPhone, the reduced screen turns out to be impractical because the touch screen is not precise, better to play with the iPad. The controls could be improved. I did the 4 chapters of the room without problems, with this after some level I got bored because of the inaccurate commands and the illogicity of certain puzzles .. I uninstalled the app.

I'm very excited, a game without violence, to think and even learn, nice graphics and if you need it, a very interesting reference book. From me 5 stars, because you can really use it for relaxed, frustration-free games. The only thing I find a little pity is that the font in the manual is sometimes very small and not easy to read. But in this game I have - which does not happen often - even looked at the entire credits, because this is actually the beginning of the story told, wonderful. A big thank you and praise the developers!

There are not many games made so well that you can imagine the love that they put into making it. Every detail taken care of in a wonderful way and if you look for information on the internet to understand the way in which this type of graphic and animation was created, you will understand that a very meticulous and not at all simple work has been done. But beyond the beautiful graphic appearance, what moved me was the atmosphere of serenity that transmitted me from beginning to end. Lumino City a world made simplicity and love for small things and playing with it often made me want to live in a world like this. Even the puzzles are not bad at all, since they are not at all obvious and often you have to think a little before getting there. I really hope they will make another one. Just wonderful.
