    Join Lumi in a puzzle adventure to find her Grandfather in Lumino City. Meet interesting characters and solve clever puzzles to go from one part of the city to the other. Everything you see and interact with is made of real cardboard and cleverly animated with Flash.

    Conclusion:
    Lumino City ran perfectly with Wine 3.6 and my GeForce GTX 1060. Initially it was "windowed" but you can click a fullscreen icon in the top right to fill the screen. Everything played perfectly as you can see in the video below. I'm very impressed with Wine's capability to play Flash SWF files without issue. Some day Flash will no longer be compatible in any operating system just like phones, but Wine will still play these older games.
