Welcome to Oriens Lumina, where you will journey into the magical land of Xu Forest, a rich world inspired by traditional Chinese tales, characters and themes.

Meet Mang, the Guardian of the Sun, who warns you of a strange darkness that has begun to spread. Venture into the Five Realms, where you will encounter many strange phenomena and beautiful creatures. And catch a glimpse, along the way, of the five precious sources of energy that will help restore the lost light.

Let yourself be transported through the forest, along a surreal nighttime adventure, where light installations, video projections and original music highlight the beauty of the natural setting and bring this contemporary story to life.


It is said that centuries ago, in the magical land of Xu Forest, a strange darkness began to spread, which prevented the sun from rising. The Guardian of the Sun, a small but brave demigod called Mang, set off into this mysterious place, eager to restore the light.

As Mang travelled through the Five Realms, he encountered many surreal phenomena. His path held many twists and turns, and as he explored, he came across five luminous sources of energy that each embodied one of the Five Elements--Water, Wood, Fire, Metal and Earth.

As he activated each one, their energy strengthened the sun, allowing it to rise again, stronger and brighter than ever.

Now, the legend repeats itself, and darkness is spreading.
Venture into the Five Realms of Xu Forest, and you may also discover the five precious lights to bring back the sun.

  • FIRE
  • WOOD
    These five hidden sources of energy await discovery. Their powerful essence will bring back the sun, and you can find them all along your journey. Watch, as their light comes to life!
    Meet the brave and bird-like Guardian of the Sun, who will lead you on a journey through Xu Forest. A spirit of springtime, he is called from the darkness to revive the light.
    Companions of Mang, along his journey, these three friends are playful and curious. Watch and listen for their antics as you discover Xu Forest, and look out for their attempt to fish for the moon!
    These futuristic birds are closely associated with Mang’s identity as a winged guardian. Feel the special magic they bring into the experience, as they fly in large flocks.
    Searching constantly for anything that emanates light, the evil force seeks to capture luminous energy. At its core, a black void takes the shape of an eye, gazing upon the forest like a predator.
    Marvel at the appearance of these mythical creatures, whose luminous presence is a beacon of hope. Shimmering in and out of the forest, they offer an omen of good things to come.
    Behold the beauty and magnificence of this magical tree, waiting to come alive once again. The powerful Magnolia is a symbol of the light that returns to Xu Forest.
