Big Robot – developer of Sir, You Are Being Hunted and The Signal from Tölva – has released The Light Keeps Us Safe for PC through Steam.
Stealth, evasion, and manipulation of light sources are your weapons against the alien machines hunting in the dark. No time for crafting: only clever use of your surroundings will keep you alive!
The Light Keeps Us safe is a bleak stealth game where you must creep through a desolate landscape, using stealth and cunning in a world where darkness means death. Where many stealth games have you stalking through the shadows, here you must seek out the light, taking refuge under street lamps, car headlights, and even in the failing, flickering glow of burned out factories.
The sky has gone out. The food is gone and the power won’t last much longer. You can’t stay down here, cowering in the bunker – those things will find their way in. It’s time to go outside and face the horrors lurking in the blackness. Only the light can keep us safe.
Using your modular flashlight, you must dazzle and overload these mechanised nightmares, uncovering mysterious structures hidden in the darkness. Peel back the dark and discover its secrets.
Stumble into traps as you run, poison burning at your lungs, and cower as dancing shadows materialise into horrific hallucinations. How long can you last in this procedural hellscape? Fight your instincts to step into the light!
Head of Big Robot, Jim Rossignol, said: “The Light Keeps Us Safe continues our journey into first-person frighteners that began with Sir, You Are Being Hunted, and builds robustly upon the talent for sci-fi atmospherics that we developed for The Signal From Tölva. It’s been a fast and fascinating process and we’re delighted to return to early access work for this timely October release.”
