What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access means that we're developing the game live. It's not finished yet, but perfectly playable. Early Access an excellent way for us to receive feedback, and for the community to steer our work through the shadows and mantraps of game creation. Also: we did this before with Sir, You Are Being Hunted - to great success! - so we're looking forward to doing so again.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early access will continue for around six months, with our target launch being around March 2019.”

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

“The full version will include more environments, more enemies, more biomes, more detail, more moor. We'll introduce and layer up new systems during the Early Access period, with a target of fortnightly updates.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A large, fully-playable slice of the game, including the bunker (your large, explorable base) and early outside environments in which you can take on the machines. So basically a few hours of well-developed game, with more to come.”

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

“We're not planning any discounts for the Early Access period.”

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

“Our community and encouraged to provide ideas, feedback, bug reports, and all that good stuff which helps the game blossom into a rich and rewarding experience for everyone. We'll be reviewing all commentary as we go! Join us!”

THE LIGHT KEEPS US SAFE - New Big Robot game coming in October 2018!

THE LIGHT KEEPS US SAFE is a stealth and survival game from Big Robot Ltd, and it's coming in October 2018!

Watch the trailer!

The sky has flickered and gone out. Only The Light can keep us safe.

You can't stay down there in the depths of the bunker. The food is gone and the power can't last much longer, either. Those things out there in the dark will only take so long to find their way in... It's time to go outside and face what's waiting for you out there. Maybe then you can go into The Light, like the others.


THE LIGHT KEEPS US SAFE is a procedurally-generated apocalypse in which only The Light can save us. Use stealth and evasion to avoid terrifying machines that patrol the desolate world, and employ the powers of Light to unpick their deadly traps.

Featuring these terrifying and entertainingly bleak things:

  • Unique light-based interactions and challenges!
  • A sprawling world of stealth, survival, and exploration from the makers of SIR, YOU ARE BEING HUNTED and THE SIGNAL FROM TÖLVA.
  • Horrifying and aggressive alien-machine enemies!
  • Fiendish traps and disturbing hostile environments.
  • A procedurally-generated environment, different for each playthrough.
  • A grim sense of existential threat (because we're good at that sort of thing...)
  • No crafting though, because we find that a bit dull tbh. Sorry!
  • A tremendous sense of satisfaction in overcoming certain doom. You want that feeling, don't you? It's a good feeling.

Wishlist for a warm glow and regular updates!

About This Game

The sky has flickered and gone out. The food is gone and the power can't last much longer. You can’t stay down here, cowering in the bunker. Those things out there in the dark will only take so long to find their way in... It's time to go outside and face what's waiting for you out there. Maybe then you can go into The Light, like the others...

Only The Light Can Keep Us Safe.


THE LIGHT KEEPS US SAFE is a procedurally-generated apocalypse in which you must master light to survive. Use stealth and evasion to avoid terrifying machines that patrol the desolate world, and employ the powers of Light to unpick their deadly traps.

Featuring these terrifying and entertainingly bleak things:
  • A sprawling world of stealth, survival, and exploration from the makers of SIR, YOU ARE BEING HUNTED and THE SIGNAL FROM TÖLVA.
  • Horrifying and aggressive alien-machine enemies! Run, hide, and stave off death at the hands of a nightmarish cast of evil machines. Fight your instincts as you hide from light-fearing enemies in plain sight, in spotlights, under streetlamps, or even among the failing, flickering illuminations of burned out factories and railway yards.
  • Unique light-based puzzles and challenges. Upgrade your modular flashlight to discover hidden structures, charge up light-sensitive machines, dazzle and overload enemies!
  • Fiendish traps and disturbing hostile environments! Discover a grim world of pitfalls, poison, tripwires, booby-traps and hallucinations.
  • A dark and disorentating procedurally-generated environment, different for each playthrough!
  • A grim sense of existential threat (because we're good at that sort of thing...)
  • No crafting though, because we find that a bit dull.
  • A tremendous sense of satisfaction in overcoming certain doom. You want that feeling, don't you? It's a good feeling.
