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 my first released game since 2009’s Make It Good and The Shadow in the Cathedral. This one is considerably shorter and easier than both of those. It’s also my first text adventure to use no keyboard input. It’s a short tale of magic, courage, animism and ice.
No save is implemented, although the game is short enough that you shouldn’t need it.
The game doesn’t work nicely on phones,
but should play okay and runs dog-slow on an iPad.
