Lux Alliance Beta |
January 22, 2016
Sillysoft is pleased to release the Lux Alliance Beta!
Lux Alliance is a simultaneous-turns team-based strategy game. It is our follow-up to Lux Delux. Previously called "Castle Vox", we have re-named the game to better reflect its content and focus. We will continue to upgrade and improve the game as we get feedback from our beta playing contingent (That's you). You can download the beta here.
We welcome you to help shape the final version of Lux Alliance with your feedback! Already in the works are collaborative AIs that will follow your lead. What else would you like to see?
We are having our annual Lux Delux online Castles Tournament in February. Sign ups are now open. New players welcome! Old players welcome! (No, we are not saying you're old. You look great! )
Sign-up here in the forums for the 2016 Lux Delux online Castles Tournaments!
We just released a new wild-west castle style map called Hexwood Showdown. You can download it from inside the Lux Delux plugin manager. Here's a preview:
May some hot Luxin' keep you warm this winter,

Our team-alliance HQ based strategic wargame Castle Vox is getting a re-vamp. Expect an updated version soon! If you have any suggestions based on how it plays now, please let us know.
As part of the update, we would like to translate Castle Vox into more languages (right now it's just in English and German). If you can help translate Castle Vox into your language, thank you! Please download this text file for translators to use, with instructions inside.
Luxtoberfest was another excellent month of online tournaments and celebrations. Congratulations to all the award winners!
We have more tournaments on tap for Lux as well, including a "Pas de bioDeux" exploration of using the the Biohazard feature on different maps online, and new leadberdoards specifically tracking the Classic and Imperium maps, to allow map specific league champions to emerge! See the Current Tournaments and Events forum thread for more details.

Lux Delux is now available on the Steam gaming platform! Sillysoft Games is very excited to be bringing the game of universal domination to a new audience of gamers. We're launching with a 25%-off sale on steam, so now is a great time to share the game with your friends.
All previously registered Lux Delux users can get your steam key here. Thanks for all your support over the years Luxers!
Steam includes user-reviews of games. If you have a steam account, we would very much appreciate you reviewing the game.
Lux Delux has been updated to version 6.44 to co-incide with the steam release. The main changes are:
• The 2 expansion campaigns of Ancient Empires Lux and American History Lux are now included inside Lux Delux.
• An enhanced Record Book window, keeping track of more stats for you and displaying them better. Access it under the File menu.
• The map will now flash visually when your turn starts. You can turn this off in the Preferences if you don't like it.
Upgrade your Lux through steam, or from Sillysoft here.
We're also discounting the mobile versions of Lux DLX to just $1.99 this week, for both iOS and Android. Find them on the app stores inside your device.
Mayday online tournament events continue throughout the month of May. Come welcome our new steam users and destroy them with your skills!
The internet is a great big place. Please help us spread the news about Lux Delux on Steam far and wide, to twitter, facebook, reddit, and your friends. Luxtopia's next phase begins here!
