The year is 2012 and a severe environmental upheaval has decimated humankind by the billions and left Earth uninhabitable. A three-person crew has been sent on the spaceship Prometheus to explore the Cydonia Mensae region of Mars for the prospect of human colonization and if possible terraform the landscape for human habitation. While commencing the landing sequence, a strange force field causes the spaceship to crash. You, as the only uninjured crew member, must explore the planet's surface to locate and eliminate the source of the force field. As your journey progresses, you will learn a new language and travel back to a time when life did exist on Mars.

the graphics for Lightbringer are a treat. The majority of the game takes place from a first-person, you-are-there perspective. Yet the cut scenes are always viewed from a third-person point-of-view. Granted, these cut scenes were gorgeous, but I found it disconcerting how the viewpoint changed during these pivotal scenes. It was as if I were no longer part of the story, but an outsider looking in. There is at times a graininess to some of the scenery, but this is easily overshadowed by the vibrant colors that are evident everywhere in the game. In fact, I do not think that I have ever seen such bright colors in a computer game. If you are going to build a sci-fi game around logic puzzles, then it never hurts that the eye-candy is top-notch....
....you wanted puzzles? Well, you got 'em. Situational puzzles, logic puzzles, time restraint puzzles, 3D puzzles--they're all in Lightbringer.....every type of puzzle you have ever seen. Language puzzles, auditory puzzles, diorama puzzles....
....game content is based on actual information gathered from the NASA and Russian space programs. The Martian landscape, the mission data and archives all play an integral role in the game and are, if you will, edutainment. Yes, you will learn while you play, but not in the heavy-handed manner we have come to expect from edutainment titles....
...Lightbringer is an excellent first effort for Aneiva Interactive. Their creative treatment of successfully merging gaming and education can only bode well for their future releases. Dreamcatcher is to be commended for having the foresight to distribute this game....
Final grade: B.
