Most online games of Lux Alliance have a 24-hour or longer timer, which allows you to take 1 turn a day in an ongoing strategic war. Look out for some faster-turn rapid-pace online games coming in early June as well.

New Lux Alliance Map: Civil War - Pea Ridge:
The Battle of Pea Ridge was an early conflict in the American Civil War. Re-enact this historical battle for Arkansas and Missouri as a 2v2 team map for Lux Alliance.
Find this new map in the Map Manager inside Lux Alliance.

LUX Capture The Flag
February 18, 2017
Lux Alliance version 1.5 is now available to download. This update includes a Capture The Flag game mode! When flags are in play, if 1 team captures all the flags they win the game.
This release also includes 3 CTF map variants:
American Civil War - CTF, World War II - CTF, and World War 2 Europe - CTF.
Your feedback on CTF mode is welcomed. We have some fresh CTF focused maps coming up as well. We are also working on more collaborative AI as well as other tweaks, as we approach a release of Lux Alliance onto the Steam platform, targeted for the end of March...
Lux Alliance is our follow-up game to Lux Delux, involving team-strategy and simultaneous turns.
yours in domination,
PS: Quasar's indie band has just released a new environmental rock song Praise to the Water (feat. MC Save The Whales). Give it a listen :)

-- Lux DLX Mobile Updates --
We have just released updates to both the iOS version and Android version of Lux DLX. It now features enhanced maps, tweaks to fit modern devices, and Biohazard game mode on all platforms, to nuke out random countries on the map each game! We'll be continueing to tweak the mobile versions going forward, please let us know if you encounter any issues.
-- Italian Unification map --
Italian Unification is a newly available map, created by our beloved cartographer Mark Bauer. You can find it inside the map download area of Lux!
"After Napoleon's defeat, the Congress of Vienna returned Italy to a patchwork of kingdoms ruled over by the prevailing European powers. Nationalism begins to rise across the countryside as cries for a Risorgimento intensify. Revolutionary movements take hold and soon the entire peninsula is at war, each faction with their own visions of a new unifed Italy."
PS: You can always retrieve your old registration code here if need be.
Hope to see you online during this year's Luxtoberfest!
