A vibrant and poetic new launch trailer details Lumote’s epic adventure as it takes on a quest like never before to overthrow the mighty Mastermote. Introducing more of the world’s inhabitants found deep within The Great Depths, the lullaby-like trailer features all-new gameplay as Lumote solves the intricate puzzles found throughout its monumental journey.
Lumote: The Mastermote Chronicles sees players squish, bop and bounce through the Great Depths - an aquatic world filled with Motes; bioluminescent creatures who spend their lives deep in the Bioverse, living on the rhythms of an electronica soundscape.
The game expands upon the early access PC prototype, Lumote - delivering a complete version of the critically-acclaimed release, featuring a whole new game world in which players take control of the Mastermote to tackle 15 new head scratching puzzles, new gold collectable artefacts to find and general bug fixes and graphical improvements.

“The journey of Lumote has been long and incredibly fulfilling; the team here has poured its heart and soul into bringing its vibrant vision to life, and we can’t wait for players to meet our squishy hero.” said Kyle Rocha, co-founder at Luminawesome Games. “Working with Wired on the game has been an absolute dream.”
