Lux is a chain reaction game. When you click on a pattern of light, it expands, and any other pattern of light in that range also expands, continuing in a chain reaction. You receive more points for longer chains. There are also lights which expand on their own and give you negative points unless you click them quickly, and there are special lights which give you extra points. There's also an online high score table. The game doesn't have very much depth, but it's pretty relaxing.

Damn it, there already _is_ a game called Lux, we know the developer! http://sillysoft.net/

People have got to start checking these things. Is it that hard to google?

This reminds me of that stupid movie "Crash" which for some reason was completely oblivious to the fact that there already WAS a perfectly good movie called "Crash". ARGH!

I agree that simple Google checking is a good idea and a lot of authors avoid that. When Orchard-L (author of Fedora Spade) started working on that game, it was originally a horror game called Neverwhere. Part way in production he learned that there was already a book by that name by Gaiman.

Why doesn't this review start with "Lux has been released"? :) Kinda makes it stand out in the list from Flywrench to Aquaria...

Ha, I didn't notice it. Though to defend that, Lux was released about a week ago, and all of the other ones were released within a day of when I posted them.
