  • "It could easily have been some intellectual erotic essay, some lofty treatise on libidinous imagery. It isn't, it's fun, and challenging and kind of raunchy." — Keith Stuart, The Guardian[theguardian.com]
  • "Luxuria Superbia is a bright, vibrant game that will make you smile as much as it will make you blush." — Andrew Webster, The Verge[theverge.com]
  • "Like many a human partner, it offers very little explicit instruction on how it wants to be caressed, but plenty of feedback to learn from." — Leigh Alexander, Slate[slate.com]
  • "What if Georgia O’Keefe and Claude Monet had a videogame love-child?”" — Chris Bateman, ihobo[blog.ihobo.com]
  • "I really like Luxuria Superbia, even though I can't quite nail down why." — Andy Chalk, The Escapist
  • "On the face of it, Luxuria Superbia is an abstract, flower-themed game that involves venturing through a tunnel. To actually play it, however, affords a much more tactile and sensual experience." — Kris Ligman, Gamasutra (interview)[gamasutra.com]
  • "Luxuria Superbia’s subversion is to present an easily obtainable objective, but to reward delayed gratification." — James Carter, Cane and Rinse[caneandrinse.com]
  • "It’s fantastic for both of you." — Chris Priestman, IndieStatik[indiestatik.com]
  • "a game crafted by Tale of Tales isn’t about clear endings or high scores, it’s about the journey a user pursues." — Bogar Alonso, The Creators Project (interview)[thecreatorsproject.vice.com]

I N T R O

Luxuria Superbia has been designed for fingers on tablets and joysticks on PCs. It's the same game but a different experience. Both interesting, we think. Two people can play together, each controlling the two joysticks on a gamepad (like the XBox 360 controller).

The game was released in November for Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, Android and OUYA.


P L A Y I N G

It’s all about the experience and the interaction.

The game consists of twelve tunnels, called flowers, and a hub, the garden. In the garden, you select a flower by turning the dial. When you complete a flower with a high score the next flower is unlocked. A flower starts out white and blank. When you touch the little buds on the tunnel wall of a flower, the color changes. To increase your score, try to stay in the flower as long as possible. The more color, the faster your score will increase. The flower likes to be colored. You can sense this. The game is very responsive. The way you get a high score is by playing slowly and gently. Just pushing through as fast as you can will result in failure. The game wants you to take it easy and really play with it.

The color you give to a flower colors the garden too. Each flower is represented by a column of the Temple of Love in the garden. Time spent in a colored flower makes its column grow. The garden starts white and through your play it becomes saturated with color.

M U S I C

The music was composed by Walter Hus, who also made music for our previous IGF-nominated title Bientôt l’été. Luxuria Superbia is actually a very musical game. The music responds continuously to your interactions.

If you buy the game now, you will get a Steam key later!

We set the minimum version of iOS to 6 to prevent people with older devices (like the iPad 1) from buying the game and then finding that their device isn't fast enough to run the game.

It's sad, that it's requires iOS 6 minimum, because of some developing features, I guess. I'm glad to support it here, thank you.

I'm little bit afraid of photo seizure, but I will be happy to buy this game. I want to play it on my touch laptop.
