About Lamplight City

Gamplay is a steampunk-ish detective adventure from the creator of A Golden Wake and Shardlight.
Can private investigator Miles Fordham find justice for his clients and track down his partner’s killer before his entire world comes apart?

Lamplight City is set in an alternate “Victorian” past. (Since it’s alternate history, that’s why “Victorian” is in quotes) The game is split up into 5 cases, but features one overarching narrative. Each case features multiple suspects, false leads, moral choices and lasting consequences. And the general atmosphere and tone of the game also takes inspiration from the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Dickens.
