Game description:

Lightmatter is a first-person puzzle game where shadows kill you. Imagine "the floor is lava" but with shadows. 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 draws inspiration from classics such as The Talos Principle, Portal, The Turing Test and Antichamber.
