Lumencraft video game Developed by 2Dynamic Games

Developed by 2Dynamic Games

Lumencraft is a top-down action shooter with tower defense elements. Emerge into a fully destructible environment where light and shadow play key roles. Build your base, dig some tunnels and find lumen - humanity's only chance for survival.



The year 2221: More than two centuries ago, the surface of the planet became uninhabitable. The remnants of humanity struggle to survive without electricity and light. Dreams of a better future died long ago, but a recently discovered mineral has brought a spark of hope. Lumen, a crystal with high energy potency, may be the last chance for a struggling civilization. Scouts, brave miners, have been sent underground to a settlement near the Lumen deposits. New scouts continue to join this mission, but so far, no one has returned. It seems that the darkness of the underground holds more than just natural riches...


Fight for your survival. Enemies are going to raid your base so be careful and leave some turrets on the watch.

Defending the underground settlement by direct combat and the use of diversified turrets.

Highly efficient and satisfying digging mechanics.

Explosive weapons. Yes, we have dynamite.


With a lot of effort and a set of original algorithms, 2Dynamic Games have transformed the open-source Godot Engine into a completely new tool. This allows every bit of terrain (pixel, as we used to call them) to be destroyed, and maps can be painted as if in a drawing program. Whats more?

Dynamic lights and pixel-perfect interaction with the fully destructible terrain.

Dread atmosphere created through the impactful sound design and a unique 2Dynamic lighting system.

Realistic simulations. Just look at the lava!

Play with your friends in co-op mode either using Steam Remote Play or locally on shared screen :)


Easily create stunning maps with moldable terrain and many of objects to choose from. Then, invite your friends to play in your custom map!

Map editor allows to create many game types (e.g. tower defense, action, survival or mix of them), define starting technologiesupgrades and of course the goals. We hope that the community will fill in the Steam Workshop with many great maps.


The game already allows for tens of hours of gameplay with first maps provided (grouped in sandbox, adventure and challenge categories) with all of the core features complete.

Lumencraft is now in the Early Access stage, which means we are still adding new features and polishing already implemented ideas.

Early Access offers multiple maps without progression between them and a map editor allowing to create own levels.

The full version will offer a progression system through nonlinear missions (campaign mode), which is not available yet.

For the full release we are also considering procedural maps and other multiplayer options.

Please look at the DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP section above to check our plans for the next months.

Developed by Knifish Studio and published by Knifish Games


The Infernal Return' is an adventure-type role-playing game developed by Knifish Studio. The design of the game scene is based on the underworld division in ancient Chinese myths and legends. But only this time, we broke the stereotypical impression. Presented to the players is the rich experience of box court exploration, interesting game interactions, and immersive plot scenes.


Koward is a timid guy who doesn't dare reveal his feeling to his girlfriend Mangostina. In order to complete the indicators given by the king of hell Yama, the two hell messengers Black Wuchang and White Wuchang (Wuchang means impermanence in Chinese language) abducted Koward with an excuse and brought him to the underworld. Koward's spirit was then imprisoned within Fengdu Ghost City. To escape and resurrect, Koward needs to collect enough elements and meet all the necessary conditions. As Koward, the player will explore the netherworld and vibe with some ghosts and monsters and cheat the death Yama with fantastic tricks.

Key features

Novel interactive systemThe hero needs to constantly collect wine to fill the 'wine spring' so as to prevent the devastating moment after the king of hell wakes up. In addition, the hero can get stuff from his relatives and friends in the mortal world by dream messaging and the cross-world delivery services. The psychic medium undertaking this operation is borne by the famed Bank of Heaven and Earth.Classic but not exhausting box court explorationThere are always some collection elements on the bright side. Still, with your desire for more of them, you will find that you are good at discovering those hidden elements in quirky corners and obtaining the sense of achievement in a professional manner. Pay attention to those luminous, missing and regularly arranged places! And do revisit the places you have been to for new discoveries! There are little ghosts who like to whine and cry! You will need to constantly adjust the lens angle flexibly while playing the game to find hidden elements.There is a casino in the underworld! Compete against ghosts with fantastic leisure gamesAfter thousands of years of ghostly work, White Impermanence, a righteous ghost officer, nowadays patronises the Oblivion Casino because of boredom. Believe it or not, chips of the casino in the underworld can be souls if only you dare!More gameplays under developmentJoin the hell disco, check out the dungeons and mazes, and meet the most powerful being in the underworld - the Great Emperor of Fengdu!Operating instructionsIn the process of the game exploration, you will often use the [Q][E][R][F] key to adjust the lens angle, use the [K] key to reset the lens, use [C][V] to zoom in and out, and use Bto switch the first and third person.
