LightBreak is a story-focused musical game, as in you infer the story from its music. While out on an adventure, Ava comes across the Saaz: a magical artifact that plays through the soul of the person who carries it.  The Saaz can connect with the emotions of its player, and visualizes their memories when they play it. 

In the game's story, Ava meets with a powerful Mage during one of her adventures. The mage takes Ava's voice when he casts a powerful spell. Devastated, She goes back home to Mother, to tell her what happened through the music of the Saaz and to seek an answer. She wants her voice back.

Every level of the game is a vignette, showcasing an aspect of her adventure.  All the vignettes are connected in a grand narrative and they paint a bigger picture as you complete each vignette.

The game play is a novel narrative-driven fusion of audio and puzzle elements. Each face of the magical instrument represents a "track" in the overall mix. Sometimes, your instrument is out of tune, and you need to tune it to play the music in harmony. Eventually, players will enter a creative flow state as they essentially play music by fixing up each track of the music.  When they find the correct tune, the environment changes drastically as the instrument will render the music and show the visual representation of Ava's memories connected to that song.

How to Play:


  • Pick a face to tune, then rotate the instrument by clicking on the 3 Rings and pick a comfortable angle
    • alternatively, you can click on a note and the game will automatically arrange and zoom in for you.
  • Click on a Note to zoom into it
  • The game will play a Note. you need to replicate this note by rotating the tuning peg. 
  • You can hear the note again as many times as you want by clicking the middle disc on the tuning peg. 
  • Turn  the tuning peg, and listen to the audio Pitch. Try looking for the correct pitch. 


  • listen to the music and make sure the notes are in the right order.
  • Switch the order of the notes to Match the music you hear.
    • drag and drop notes to rearrange their order.

Point & Click:

  • Find objects of interest in the narrative tableau & click on them to advance.


In the game settings, you can turn on visual cues to help you solve the puzzles more easily.

Any plans for a Linux demo build?

Deleted 2 years ago

At the moment I can play by downloading from a browser but no download options show up in the client. Can you look into this?


will do. I will reply once i have a solution.

Actually looking at it myself I believe the fix is to simply upload an unzipped folder. Please do if you can.

Got it

what does getting this version of the game get you? (updates to game as they come? full version when it is released?)

(1 edit)

We put this version on sale just to get some exposure. You can grab the Earlybird deal on the KS Campaign right now for $15, and get the full version when its ready (Steam/DRM-free PC & Mac & Linux) plus some Kickstarter goodies!

so if someone had bought this at full price, they wouldn't be getting anything in the future (if so, maybe put a disclaimer on the page)

This version is a demo and will remain 100% off forever :)
