A new kind of game from the developer of Machinaero, Lyxo is playing with light, reflecting and refracting against lines of glass that you can draw with your finger. It’s a puzzle game where you start with a predominately dark room with a small string of light breaking through the black depth, and you have the ability to manipulate the light so that you can fill an orb of light.

Drawing various white lines, which represent glass, will then allow you to reflect the light across the screen. You can make your lines straight or curved, and move them after they are drawn. At first, the light you need to reflect is white, but over time you will find other colours of light to refract, and you’ll need to get these specific lightwaves to orbs of the same colour. If you don’t want one of the lines you have drawn, you can simply tap them and they will disappear.
Along with the general vibe of the game being quite relaxing, if you turn on the sound, you will hear how gentle and calm it is. The resting sound is simple, quiet, and each time light bounces across the line you have created, a note will play, adding slightly to the general soundscape. This note just is hit once - it’s not continued as a part of a greater song - and feels quite relaxing to listen too.
