Description

This point-and-click adventure game is the successor to Dark Fall: The Journal but is not a sequel as such, since Lights Out! has completely different locations, story and characters.

Take on the role of Benjamin Parker, a cartographer, who has been commissioned to map the treacherous shores and waters of Trewarthen, England. Over the centuries, many ships and fishing vessels have gone down there, claiming countless lives beneath the Fetch Rock Lighthouse. It is hoped that his maps will help navigation through the fog in that area.

Upon arriving, Parker is given little to go on by his employer except that the light from the lighthouse has suddenly gone out without explanation and he should go investigate. Why him? Why now .. in the middle of the night?

Making his way to the dark Fetch Rock Lighthouse, he soon discovers that the 3 lighthouse keepers have disappeared without a trace! Sifting through information left behind, Parker finds evidence of another presence - something (or someone) else is here! Is the lighthouse haunted? What happened to the three men? Why did the lights go out? And, what is the real reason he was asked to come here?

To find those answers, Parker will be mystically transported to different periods in the lighthouse's time-line. Exploring in first person "Myst-like" style, interact with objects, reading materials and puzzles. Ambient sound effects, moody shadows and eerie music add to the immersion factor.
