LuminoCity, State of Play, 2014, iOS, PC, Mac and Apple TV.
State of Play built an entire city out of real materials and filmed it as the backdrop for the game. Through this gorgeous environment weaves a clever, charming and puzzling adventure. Lumi’s grandfather, the caretaker of Lumino City, has been kidnapped. To find him, the player must explore the city and figure out the fascinating mechanisms that power this unique world. Everything on screen was made using paper, cardboard and glued miniature lights and motors. The process resulted in the building of a 10 foot high model city, using laser cutting plus miniature lights and motors to bring it to life. An entirely handmade city . State of Play collaborated with award-winning architects, fine-artists, prop-makers and animators, each discipline brought something unique to the design and execution of the finished game. We will be showing some of the original models and drawings that helped to bring life to this unique city.
