I will admit that when the Jane Titor emailed me about her first commercial visual novel release, The Light at the End of the Ocean, I didn’t know what to expect. I was familiar enough with her blog, but I completely missed the fact that she was a game developer and had she not contacted me I might have missed out on a truly wonderful game—a sentiment I have expressed on more than one occasion.
In The Light at the End of the Ocean a young woman wakes up in a lighthouse with no memory of who she is or how she came to be there. The stoic lighthouse keeper informs her that she crashed her boat on the beach, but offers little else about the circumstances surrounding their meeting. The keeper does however, inform her that help will arrive soon and that she is free to explore the island in the meantime. But, the more the young woman learns about the island and it’s inhabitants, the more unsettling things become. What secrets does the island hold? Who is the mysterious lighthouse keeper? Will the young woman ever discover the truth?
