Note: This game is meant for mature players

The Lighthouse was born back in 2014 at Global Game Jam as a 2D point-and-click thriller. It was created in less than 48 hours, which necessitated a limited scope and vision.

The game is currently being re-imagined and rebuilt from the ground up with Unreal 4 as a fully-featured video game.

The Lighthouse takes place in Maine in 1964 and tells the story of Irvine (that’s you), a private eye called in to investigate a young girl’s disappearance. As you explore and interact with the gameworld, you become caught up in horror inspired by the best classics.

I may be wrong, but I suspect Shadow Knights Studio wants to scare you. Particularly if you play the game in VR.

If you enjoy being frightened, please consider backing The Lighthouse on Kickstarter. The game has been Greenlit and will be released in Q4 2017 for Windows, Mac and VR.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
