A downloadable game for Windows


Lucerna Tenebris is a fantasy RPG set in a world where Deities and Demons fought, consequently altering numbers of animals into monsters and humans into demi-humans. In response to humanity's treatment of demi-humans, they united themselves to survive against human tyranny, while humans created a guild of adventurers to repel both monsters and demi-humans.

Currently, the game is in the early prototype, tailored to suit the maximum of 1 hour judging play time for the Indie Game Making Contest 2018, mainly showcasing the plot outline and featured battle system.


  • Fight enemies on grid-based Active Time Battle system!
  • The game re-introduces Grandia's ability system - where you learn specific weapon skills through equipping certain type of weapons - as Mastery system.
  • Learn more skills through class system called Forte.
  • Beat monsters by customizing Masteries and Fortes you've gained!

Not sure why it was, but there was a slight delay to the cursor movements when selecting options with the keyboard. Couldn't tell if the game as a whole was laggy or just that aspect. Wasn't bad enough to where I couldn't complete the demo though.

The differing mindsets between Rex and Regina seems like a promising spark for some character arcs. 

I'd recommend making the character icons on the turn timeline bar stand out a little more. Their face in the small diamond shape could be a little hard to distinguish sometimes.

Best of luck with the progress on this!

Thank you for the bug report and the suggestion!
We'll see how we can work on it.


It's been 3 years when will the next update come?

Hey I love Eroge!
Sorry for the late reply, but hopefully the big update will come this year!

Please wait for the next announcement

the fighting mechanics remind me of Princess of light

Interesting, I don't actually know about Princess of Light though

What kind of game is it?

its a turn based rpg that is like a 2d platformer in a way it has the same type of attack timeline. the dialouge is all rhymes, kind of like a storybook, and you recruit all types of characters while roaming a fantasy like world

your teamates arent humans, more like things straight out of a fairytale

Wait, isn't that Child Of Light then? I mean, she's basically a princess, so I see the confusion.

YESSS! thank you thank you. 

Im so suprised that i misremembered the title, i played that game like it was the only thing that existed.

Oh that's interesting! Sounds really nea

it is, I recommend it, it's on the switch

Nice-looking game, but I can't run it on my gaming PC with Windows 11.

Hey, all_zebest, mind telling me more about it? Is there an error window or something you can screenshot?

Thank you

Hi, dev. Thanks for your answer. I just have a black window, then le screen becomes black for one second and everything disapears. I've tried compatibility mode and installing on different HD, but nothing worked.

There's no warning or anything then? It's just disappeared?
Ok, thank you for the information. I'll try to look at what might be the problem.

If you'd like to, you can join our Discord and tell me more about it: https://discord.gg/NTCq2fY
Or maybe check out our other games.

I finally could play the game and I joined the Discord.

Thank you, Anwynn, for trying the prototype!
