Lucas the Game is an independent video game developed by Timothy Courtney. Lucas the Game was released for PC and Mac OS X on July 1, 2015.[1] Players control Lucas, a boy who wears a red shirt and blue jeans, as he attempts to save all citizens. Upon birth, Lucas learns the world is completely corrupt, and all citizens have been affected by strong cultural programming. They can no longer tell fact from fiction. It's up to Lucas to find the King Cables and deliver them to The Snowman, a rogue media mogul.[2]

Player success relies on split-second decision making, and accurate control of Lucas. Player's control Lucas to run and jump across platforms, gaps, enemies, and other obstacles. Lucas must get to the end of each level in order to advance to the next. Each level, known as a realm, consists of a different setting and has a unique theme. Some realms contain locked doors, for which the player must find the key before being able to exit. The player cannot complete a realm until all cables contained within that realm are collected. Many realms feature unique enemies and obstacles, not seen in other parts of the game.

Development of the game began in January 2014, and was announced by the developer in May 2014.[3] Courtney worked on character creation, level design, and enemy ai. The game was tested by immediate family. Courtney would not allow anyone to see a level, until he felt it was complete. After play tests, adjustments to design would be made. The soundtrack for the game was created by Matt Clark (State Seal Media), a member of Austin based band Ola Podrida.

Lucas' goal is to deliver the documents at the end of the game to a rogue media mogul, known as The Snowman. Gameplay is considered difficult, and similar in style to Super Mario Bros.
