Lux DLX Android update and more
May 24, 2016

Lux DLX for Android has been updated, now with better compatibility for Android 6 Marshmallow devices. We have also added the Biohazard game mode, available from the game options menu. Biohazard nukes out a random selection of countries, for a different map each game. You can download Lux DLX for Android devices here:


The Back To Classic online event for Lux Delux is happening this month!

The Classic map holds the key to a lot of the strategy required to win in Lux Delux. We are hosting a Classic event to honor the time-tested map of the world that started it all.

Come on out on Thursday May 26th and Tuesday May 31st to join me for the Back to Classic qualifying games. Finals will be held in early June. Full details in the forums here:


Lux Alliance continues to receive new maps. The first map in a series of the United States Civil War is now available from inside the game. Here's an image of the Civil War - Wilderness map:

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.
