Lumen Section

Lumen Section is a french studio created in 2018 by the passion of 3 friends. It is the result of seven years of suffering and tenacity, and the start of many more. We draw our inspiration from old school games to create modern games focusing on fun mechanism and colorful universes.

Description

Citrouille is an arcade platformer featuring adorable little witches on a quest for candy. Despite the childish appearance, the gameplay is merciless. There is no jump, you have to rely on your magic ladders, spells and power ups to get through. Brave the danger, face your nemesis, cover the world with flowers and claim the treats you deserve!

History

After failing to complete an ambitious project, the Lumen Section team had to pull themselves together. In 2016 the development of Citrouille was started out of the desire to create a simple but complete project and to learn from it. The aim was to revamp some old arcade games from our childhood – especially from Amiga – and to offer a modernized tribute. The game was named Citrouille, French for Pumpkin, because it draws inspiration from Halloween imagery.

Game Modes

Story Mode:
Play as Praline or Vanille, the two main characters, through 50+ levels within 5+ unique worlds. If going through the quest on your own feels too hard, you can cooperate with a friend on a shared screen. But beware, for both players share the same life counter. Also, your spells and weapons make no difference between friends and foes.

Versus Mode:
Two to four players can face each others on a shared screen. Anis and Reglisse, the two antagonists, are joining the fray to claim their share. There are two different modes with 5 unique arenas for each:
