Luxuria Superbia is a “simple game of touch, pleasure and joy.” It’s a multi-sense experience with music, touch-based play and beautiful visuals.As a player, you try to cultivate flowers of various colors in a garden.

It’s a story exploration game that follows Kaitlin, who’s returned home after a year abroad to an empty house.
