Selva Interactive has announced that their innovative and welcoming resource management game, Illuminaria, is coming to Steam on August 4th. In Illuminaria players will be tasked with bringing back light to a world overtaken by darkness. They’ll control a swarm of intelligent robots while mining resources, managing and defending multiple bases, going on expeditions, and fighting perilous enemies that stand in their way.
In Illuminaria the mechanics are simplified in a unique way. Building and gathering resources take only a few clicks from the user. The player controls a swarm of robots who are smart enough to decide which task to do next based on the swarm’s intelligence and the player’s input. The game combines several genres in the strategy spectrum, like tower defense, auto battlers, and base-building, straightforwardly and engagingly.
“We wanted to create a game that felt more accessible than typical strategy or base-building games which can sometimes be overwhelming to the player.”
“One key way we accomplished this is through creating clear objectives with goal-oriented gameplay, as opposed to a typical sandbox setting.”
Alhvi Balcarcel – Co-Founder of Selva Interactive
Throughout the game, players will uncover the lore behind how darkness took over and why it’s their job to bring back light
