Developer: The Hermit Collective
“If it sees you, hide twice”
A third person narrative adventure with behavioral, cerebral, and philosophical puzzles
In Lampblack you are the prey and there are nameless forms amongst the trees and mist laying in wait. Hunting. Searching. Luring. Calling.
Equipped only with the Sacred Texts, a lamp, a compass, and a walkie talkie, you must memorize the rules and survive.
The dangers might not be what you think. There are dangers everywhere. You will be used against yourself and your curiosity will lead to your downfall.
Lampblack is a macabre journey through a beautiful and surreal world where your choices and actions never result in permadeath, but in an internally consistent narrative that reflects your gameplay choices. If you fail a mission or objective the world keeps turning and you’re left to reflect on the consequences.
Our current cast for LampBlack, backed by a WIP of orchestral arrangement. It's bizarre to see this taking shape so fast— The Hermits (@LampsBlack) February 19, 2020
