March Update!

Hi Knights,

The team has been working hard this month getting ready for GDC! The Lighthouse has it’s own booth in the North Hall and we will also be demoing the game at the ID@Xbox booth on the 21st between 2pm-4pm.

We’ve also been getting some great feedback from our Beta Knights and have been implementing some great fixes/updates based on their feedback.

This months update is very small because there has been so much preparation for our booth, but here it goes. :D

Soundtracks are Here!!

We received the physical soundtracks and Mimi has been personally signing each one. We hope to get these out to you soon.




If you still want to purchase the soundtrack, you can do that HERE

We only have a limited number of these left so get it while supplies last.

Beta Testing

Beta testing for the prologue has been going great and we’re so thankful for the Beta Knights for playing the prologue dozens of times to help us find every bug and for giving us great feedback to help make it a better experience.

Based on the feedback, we have a solid grasp of things we need to update and feel that we can move on to Beta testing Act 01. We will be posting a sign up sheet for anyone who is interested in Beta testing and that’s in an early access Kickstarter or Indiegogo tier after we get back from GDC.

For all of you Knights that are currently in the Beta test we will be dropping one last build for you this weekend.

Development Updates

We're feeling really good about the progress on The Lighthouse and we're working hard to make sure that everything is polished and working well. The upcoming Beta test will help us polish even further and make sure that we are catching all of the bugs that may be present and working to improve pacing/mood/gameplay feel, etc...

We're currently tackling our largest environment which is the inside of the Wescott Manor. All of the placeholder assets that you saw in the original alpha demo have been replaced with brand new custom assets. This has added to the development time but we believe it's necessary and makes the experience and atmosphere unique to The Lighthouse.

GDC 2018

The team is preparing for the Game Developers Conference (GDC) next month! We will have a booth @GDC Play for the entire expo and we will be showing off the game at the ID@Xbox booth on Wednesday March 21st at 2PM! The team is very excited to be given this opportunity to display The Lighthouse at GDC.



If you're going to be at GDC next month, let us know we would love to see you! :D


Thank you all for your continued support. You all are the best Knights ever!

About This Game

The Lighthouse is a uniquely crafted thriller with glimpses into psychotic, alternate dimensions. Private Investigator James Irvine finds himself lured into a haunting, neo-noir world in search of a missing young woman, named Lily Beaumont. Traverse the abandoned property of Maine’s wealthiest family, the Wescotts, as you search for the truth.

Gameplay


The Lighthouse is a first person thriller.

Your objective is to find Lily Beaumont by overcoming environmental obstacles and puzzles while also avoiding a dangerous presence following you. Use the light from The Lighthouse, along with your flashlight, to guide your way.

Environments


Explore through multiple environments with environmental specific puzzles and obstacles. While building the project, we knew that we wanted The Lighthouse's environments to be unique and memorable. We also wanted to make sure puzzles and obstacles were tangible and seemed grounded in the 1960’s, when technology wasn't as accessible as it is today.

The Story


The Lighthouse takes place on February 19, 1964. You play as James Irvine, a former detective turned private investigator in the state of Maine. Irvine is a man who solves the problems that the city doesn't have the inclination to follow-up on, little less solve. Many of the lucrative cases that come to his office are from locals with various requests, from spouses looking to expose infidelity in their relationships to business owners looking to gather enough evidence to incriminate their partners.


February 19, 1964 is an important anniversary for Pt. Irvine as it’s the day he lost his first born, Lily, to cancer 7 years prior. Every year he visits her, placing a yellow lily and lit candle on her gravestone before watching it burn until extinguished. This tradition had never been broken - until today. As he packs to leave his office, candle in hand, he notices a letter slide under his door, the envelope marked: ‘Irvine.’
He opens it and reads:

Mr. Irvine,

My daughter hasn't come home for 2 years, 4 months and 9 days. You see, she's missing. She was involved in the old lighthouse incident, you may remember her name - Lily. I've asked the local authorities to look for her, but they haven't got a clue. They tell me horrible things that no parent should hear. They tell me to accept that she may have died. Worst, they tell me they can't help. I can't sleep until I know where she is, if she's safe, if she's scared, and if she's trying to come home but can't find home. Help me find her. Look for her at the Lighthouse, as that was her last known location.

-Elizabeth Beaumont

Inside the envelope he finds an address and a single, yellow lily.
