    Hi,

    Lumena is a no-nonsense rhythm game coming to the iPhone and iPad. It features an original electronic soundtrack by our super talented friend Modbom. Check out some of his music here.

    Updated 5/2/14
    It's an arcade game that will release May 8th on the App Store.

    Best Parts
    - Minimal
    - Twitch Gameplay
    - Challenges reflexes & concentration
    - Amazing original electronic music


    History
    Lumena was created out of our love for minimal games and frustratingly hard games. Pixel perfect precision and lighting fast reflexes are a must. The idea of bringing those aspects to a rhythm game got us really excited. As a design challenge we chose to focus on minimalism. Reducing the game to its core essence kept us focused and our energy levels high through development.

    Thanks! The price will be $2.99, but we will be launching with a sale price of $1.99 to celebrate. I'm not sure we're doing more beta testers at this time, but I'll talk it over with the team.

    First, a big thank you to everyone in the forum that contacted me about beta testing. This community is great.

    Second, its a big week for us—Friday we will submit Lumena to the app store!

    Third, we recently finished the icon. What do you think?

    Lumena is still waiting for review, but we're hard at work on an official release trailer as well as some other level preview videos. You can expect the trailer either today or tomorrow.

    Thanks! We wanted to make a very challenging game. We love games like Super Hexagon and WaveWave and we think gamers who enjoy those types of games will like Lumena.
