Description

Lightmatter is an atmospheric first-person puzzle game where shadows kill you. Imagine "the floor is lava", but with shadows instead. Players have to use different light sources to their advantage. The game tells a sci-fi story about a maniac inventor who has created the ultimate power source called "Lightmatter". As a player, you are investigating his facility to try and understand what's going on. The game includes full voice-acting by David Bateson (known as the bald assassin in another famous Danish game).

History

Lightmatter originally started out as a university project where a group of Medialogy students wanted to explore lights and shadows as a the primary gameplay mechanic in a puzzle game. They created a 15-minute prototype and uploaded it as a free download on Reddit. The game became an overnight success with thousands of downloads. Furthermore, the student prototype won multiple awards at game conferences and expos (such as "Most Innovative Game" at Casual Connect in Amsterdam). The students wanted to to pursue the light/shadow concept concept further and created the company Tunnel Vision Games to turn it into a fully-fledged game. They have been working on Lightmatter since 2016 and plan to release it late 2019.
