State of Play’s brilliant adventure game lets you journey through a spellbinding paper world that has to be seen to be believed. Created in a complex process that’s part origami and part stop motion, Lumino City’s highly polished environments come to life like nothing you’ve ever seen. But it’s not just the backdrops that captivate—this unique point-and-click adventure melds clever puzzles with a heartwarming story to powerful effect.

This game is visually and intellectually and artistically awe-inspiring. A tiny girl moves through an incredibly textured world using her wits and the manual given to her by her granddad. The world is so small, and it feels small, but it is also vast and filled with familiar mysteries.

The manual itself is a work of art, and it’s only a piece of the game. It makes it everything that it is. For any challenge, it gives instructions, a simple clue, or the whole solution. This means nothing is miserably tedious or too hard because the answers are built in— not just to the game, but to the narrative. Our hero is learning the ropes, after all. You can play the whole game just by following/working out the explicit directions in the manual, and you’d be well within the narrative to do so. Not cheating at all.

Absolutely immersive and challenging and mind boggling. I started to play it on my iPhone — not fun. Too small a screen. The whole thing changed for me when I tried it on my iPad. Finished the remainder of the game during a blizzard. Absolutely magical. Fully recommend to anyone and everyone.

Lumino City is a testament to the brilliance of “luminaries” such as Tesla, Archimedes, and Thomas Edison. The folks behind Lumino City have truly honored them by crafting puzzles that “illuminate” their brilliant inventions and discoveries. This is next level puzzle-making - because the puzzles are based on engineering concepts that we may take for granted in our daily lives - like lightbulbs, electricity, and engines to name just a few. Moreover, if one goes searching for answers, Lumino City has provided a manual does more than just provide answers. Indeed, the manual is a highly detailed engineering guide that can’t help but teach you a few scientific principles, if you are curious and love to learn about how things work, and prefer to have fun while doing so. Then there is the hand-crafted design of the entire city which captures one’s imagination and provides moments of awe and delight. I just can’t say enough. Thank you for the smiles and the joy your creativity provides!
