Luminary is currently being developed by two female students in their last year of university, studying a Bachelor of Arts in Games Design and Art at the University of Southampton’s Winchester School of Art. Having started this project in October 2018, by researching into different topics before diving into research around Aztecs, Luminary was born and continued to be developed into a game since the end of January 2019.
