A downloadable visual novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Demo only. Full release coming soon!

A young woman wakes up in a lighthouse with a head injury and no memory of the shipwreck that brought her there—or anything else, for that matter. A stone-faced, stoic Lighthouse Keeper assures her that help will arrive soon, but seems unwilling or unable to help her figure out whom or where she is. Help the Lighthouse Keeper’s Guest uncover the mysteries of the island and its inhabitants in this point-and-click visual novel about unlikely friendship and loss of identity.

This demo is approximately 15 minutes long. You might want to play it twice, since there are two different scenes you can unlock with your choices during the point-and-click segment!

The Light at the End of the Ocean deals with themes of mental illness. The demo only briefly touches on those themes, but the full version will address them in a bit more detail, and I'll add corresponding content warnings once it's released.

Full credits and more information on the game's website.

A great looking demo, I'm intrigued where the story will go from there. Looking forward to the full release! :)


The character art is very nice, and the scene images, particularly the one are the mirror, look really stunning. I'm looking forward to seeing more of it when it's done!

Just played. It was short but intriguing. The artwork is lovely, I love the Guest's sprite art. 

My only issue was that the sound of the rain is connected to the music, so I couldn't turn down the rain SFX without turning down the music as well. 

Other than that, I can't wait to see what else you do with this game! =D
