'The Light Keeps Us Safe' Comes To Steam Early Access - Screens & Trailer

The Light Keeps Us Safe is a procedurally-generated apocalypse in which you use stealth and evasion to avoid terrifying machines that patrol the desolate world, and employ the powers of Light to unpick their deadly traps.

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

And 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 will be coming to Steam Early Access on Oct 11, 2018, and will be for aprox. 6 months so the community can provide ideas, feedback, bug reports, and all that good stuff which helps the game blossom into a rich and rewarding experience for everyone.

“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.”

“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.”

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.

The Light Keeps Us Safe is in development for PC, scheduled for launch in March 2019.
