Luminous is an Estonian indie game company founded by developer Mihkel Trei. He’s been developing games since 2002 and got the idea of Circle Empires from a famous graphic designer who said “Always start a design by drawing a circle”.
In 2016, Luminous partnered with Edvin Aedma, a developer on the Estonian indie hit Teleglitch: Die More Edition. Together, they decided to involve two more Estonian indie dev companies run by Edvin: Interactive Fate, to create a complete overhaul of all Circle Empires graphics, and Playtest Games, to ensure smooth production of the entire project.
