Survive the night.

As a SAR officer, you’re no stranger to remote areas. After a freak blizzard strands two people in a remote cabin, you’ve been sent to help. Play tandem stories of past and present to survive, all while being hunted by a malevolent being of winter and primal hunger in this story-driven survival horror.

First Light is a first-person survival psychological horror game tinted with body horror, set in a remote cabin in the dead of winter. Explore the cabin and its surroundings, examining items and collecting cassettes to piece together events of the story. Told from two perspectives of the past and the present, you need to know both to survive the powerful forces hunting you.

Play as the SAR officer, Eli, sent to rescue a distress call sent three days ago. Live the past events as Ben, while his fiancee Julia searches for her grandfather, whom she hasn’t heard from in weeks. Meanwhile, an ancient creature of famine and gluttony stalks silently in the wind and snow.

The fates of all involved unfold throughout the night, while Eli must prepare to escape at the first touch of dawn.
