What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Being in early access gives us a chance to bring features out gradually and develop along side the community. We feel this is the best way for us to deliver a quality game that people will enjoy. This also helps us early on with a bit of funding to continue growing the game and our studio.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At this stage we’re anticipating we’ll be in Early access with Lightsmith for roughly 12 months. We hope over that time we can get some great feedback from the community and really elevate this little game of ours.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access state of the game offers basic town management, crafting and questing. The full version will have much more features including:

  • More complex crafting tree
  • A wider variety of NPCs to interact with
  • Lots more story content
  • Tons more quests
  • Improved graphics
  • More quality of life features

Those that purchase in Early Access will get to watch and be part of the game’s evolution. What we see as a final version is honing in on what the community enjoys most and expanding those areas to create a game you enjoy and we’re proud to have made possible.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access state of the game offers basic town management, crafting and questing. You can meet many of the townsfolk from Gloomsdale, explore the surrounding region and build up your factory.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We will increase the price once we come out of early access. Joining in early gives you a chance to get the game at a cheaper price no matter how large it grows.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“During the development we will be working with community on the steam forums and our Discord to see what people like the most/least and adjust our roadmap accordingly to get the best game possible!”

About This Game

The world has been plunged into eternal night, blanketed in darkness by eerie creatures that cannot survive in the light. Despite the gloom there is still hope as a rare source of light that grows from the ground has emerged, and a gifted few are able to manipulate it to their will; the Lightsmiths.

You are one of the rare individuals able to craft with light, and it’s up to you to keep your settlement running. Gather your materials, craft light sources in your forge, and help your fellow villagers survive. Slowly grow your settlement into a self-sustaining village that welcomes newcomers and stands as a beacon of hope in this dark and gloomy world, keeping the creatures of darkness at bay.

And whatever you do, don’t let the light go out.

Game Features
  • A world of darkness, use your light to find your way
  • Build up your factory
  • Manage your town and where the light goes
