THE LIGHTHOUSE HD

Press release for immediate release

London, UK / January 20 / The Lighthouse: A shining example of time management gameplay set to light up the iPad from Thursday

Digital publisher, Kavcom, in partnership with industry veteran, Stuart Burrows, and independent developer, Four Door Lemon, are beaming with the release of atmospheric time management game, The Lighthouse on Apple’s iPad from Thursday, January 19.

As darkness falls, the storm rages, and the fog closes in. Only you can save your ships from the night. The Lighthouse is a beautifully crafted 3D action / time management game set against the chilling backdrop of inhospitable darkness and crashing waves. The intensely addictive collision avoidance gameplay will test a players guile, nerve and strategy.

The ocean is a forbidding place. Fearsome fogs, forgotten mines, treacherous whirlpools, killer sharks and siren song lure the unwary. Use the welcoming beam of The Lighthouse to guide your vessels to safety. Speedboats, yachts, cruisers and tankers all need your protection. Forget line-drawing and embrace the power of the light. Drive back the menacing fog before it envelops everything in its sight.

Use flares, fog-horns and buoys to fend off unrelenting attacks from hostile sea monsters – including the huge Megalodon sharks, to the fearsome colossal squid and other creatures that lurk in the deep.

With its breathtaking visual style, complemented by stunning animations brining monsters of the deep to life, as well as the authentic motion of unrelenting waves, The Lighthouse is pioneering unchartered waters for compelling gameplay on the iPad.
