A Colder Light

A Colder Light

The last light has gone. The stars are coming out in the black sea above. Many are hidden by ice-fingered winds. My father is still not returned and the fire is almost gone.

But this is how life is: always an edge. A thin sheet on a diving-deep pool.

I hope he will return soon. I cannot summon him.

A Colder Light is now available to play online.


The game is short, 30 mins or so, with a gentle puzzle mechanic and no way to die. It’s also unusual in being a text adventure in which there’s no typing: all your input is done with on-screen buttons.

Try it out, and let me know what you think!
