The Lighthouse

Press Release:

Kavcom Ltd announces The Lighthouse.  Initially for iOS

Tuesday 4 th October 2011: Digital publisher Kavcom Ltd has announced a licensing deal to develop and publish The Lighthouse, an original game by veteran games designer, Stuart Burrows.

The Lighthouse will be Kavcom’s third major licensing agreement following the release of Burn Zombie Burn and The Bitmap Brothers Game Z in June. The Lighthouse is being developed by the Bradford based developer Four Door Lemon

The Lighthouse is a unique 3D collision avoidance game, featuring cutting edge visuals that push the iPad2 to its limits, to create a highly atmospheric and evocative environment.  When darkness falls, only the sentinel lighthouse with its guiding light, stand between your vessels and the raging elements, razor edged rocks and fearsome creatures of the deep. The Lighthouse takes the genre to the next level. Forget the line-drawing games of the past and follow the light .

 “Working with Stuart and Simon’s team at FDL on the development of Kavcom’s first original game, The Lighthouse has been a great experience," said Managing Director of Kavcom Ltd, Tony Kavanagh. The game has really come together well. It’s a highly original take on a well established and much loved genre and there is nothing quite like it on the App Store. The incredible 3D and animation, combined with cinematic music and sound effects, create a gameplay experience with real atmosphere and tension.

“We’re really pleased with the way The Lighthouse has come together through its development, as a group we wanted to push what is typically done in an iOS title in terms of graphics and audio as well as having great addictive ‘one more time’ gameplay elements” added Simon Barratt, Director of Four Door Lemon
