Editors’ Notes

Made by the creators of Horn, The Path to Luma is an impressive puzzler with an environmentally conscious angle. Featuring clever challenges and a clean design, the game tasks you with navigating tiny planets and finding their sustainable energy. While the puzzles are straightforward, the gorgeous visuals and poignant music make each stage feel as much like an educational meditation as a puzzle. 


Great puzzles amidst a snorefest of inactivity

This game was surprisingly good for the first few hours. A new device is introduced every couple of levels, adding a large amount of possibilities to the puzzles. Each puzzle is extremely well thought out, giving a great feeling of accomplishment once you finally discover the correct sequence of events for the solution. I have to commend the game for the great puzzle designs.

Despite all that, I chose not to finish this game. I quit after level 18 of 23. So why did I abandon the game? Several reasons...

The puzzles just seem to drag on. It just feels like you're doing the same thing over and over again with the only difference being that each level is more complicated than the last. There are also way too many levels that force you to walk back and forth across the level several times, and your character moves very slowly. There is also a 1 to 3 second animation every time you interact with something, and you interact with things a lot. So the game basically devolves from something enjoyable into a snorefest of constantly waiting for the game to allow you to progress.

Absolutely Stunning!

I recently finished this game and I am in awe. The graphics are gorgeous, the sounds are beautiful, and most importantly, the message behind the game is so important, making the story inspiring. The puzzles are challenging, but not frustrating; it's one of those games that you pick up and can't put down, but it's because it's thoroughly interesting. I could honestly not be happier with this game. Overall, there were no major issues with gameplay as well; everything ran beautifully for me. I would love to see more levels in this game or a sequel to it. Thank you to everyone that participated in creating The Path to Luma; as a aspiring video game creator and Conservation major in college, this game took the two things I'm most passionate about and harmonized them. It has inspired me in so many ways.
