Lux DLX 3.0 - iOS world domination marches forward
November 01, 2013

Lux DLX version 3.0 is now out on the iOS app store. Your favourite mobile game of world domination keeps getting better! Version 3 includes:

- Faster animations!

- Quick-buttons for Auto-Advance and All-Attack modes.

- Larger iPhone5 screen size supported.

- More maps use Retina quality graphics.

You can update through the app store on your iOS device, or here's the app store link for Lux DLX:

If the new version doesn't start properly, please try deleting it from your device and then re-installing fresh.

The free iOS app Lux Touch has also been updated to version 3.0, with improvements of its own.

We've released some brand new maps today as well, to accompany Lux DLX 3:

- ‘Opium Wars’ for iPads throws you into an ancient drug war in the Orient. Use the map starting scenario for the full historical recreation!

- ‘Battle For DC’ for iPhones brings political warfare to a new level. Capture the monuments of the US capital city, no filibusters required!

You can install new maps directly from inside Lux DLX. At the main menu select Map, then the "Download More Maps..." link at the bottom. We'll continue to release more fresh maps for iDevices from here. Please let us know if there's a specific map you would like to see.

Help Lux Delux get greenlit
March 22, 2013

Lux Delux needs your help to get greenlit onto the Steam gaming network.

Show your support and vote up Lux Delux in Steam Greenlight!
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=133112577

Steam is the largest digital distribution network and store for PC games (they support Mac and Linux now too). Their service is quite excellent, with many games at great prices. They use a player-voting system to decide which games they add, called greenlight. Getting greenlight would mean many more players in Lux, and a wider spread!

Lux needs your help! Please vote for Lux Delux in the steam greenlight system. Click on the "Yes" button with the thumbs-up (you'll need a steam account), and share with your friends.

New Maps are Here!

The 9th annual Luxtoberfest tournament and celebration is nearly here!
September 17, 2012

Luxtoberfest is the yearly festival celebrating the world domination computer game Lux Delux.

2012 is promising another action-packed festival. October will be filled with multi-player tournaments, forum games, and the yearly Lux Awards.

You can find the full schedule of tournaments and forum games in the Luxtoberfest 9 forum:
http://sillysoft.net/forums/viewforum.php?f=16

Luxtober will also include the official launch of the RAW 2.0 rankings system on Saturday, September 29th. The improved formula has been developed by stats junkie paranoiarodeo and factors in a wider set of variables, including average game times for various maps and settings, how many kills you make, and how well you play all week long (not just on Sunday). Also, bot games will be scored differently, and the finish line for medals will be moved on a regular basis, so players across the globe will have more opportunities to compete. Come throw your Lux hat into the ring this October and see how high you rank in the new system!

Hope to see you online during the festivities this October.

Sincerely,
Dustin Quasar,
Sillysoft Games
