Humans tend to shy away from the dark and all that crawls within it, but philosophers and deep thinkers like to remind us that there cannot be light without the darkness.
That's all well and good, but let's be honest: when there are vampires stationed in the murk, you should do whatever's necessary to bring out the sun.
Lums, by Hyperbolic Magnetism, is a physics-based puzzle game that challenges you to light things up for the sake of your own survival.
They came in the night
The Lums are soft, sprite-like critters that glow with their own gentle light. They live in a dense forest that has only a few fingers of sunlight poking through the tree canopy.
Lums demonstrates that there's still some originality left in the dark corners of the physics-based puzzle genre
