The Keeper – Game Jam Build Download

The Keeper is a beautiful PS1 styled horror game that tells a tragic ghost story as you explore a mysterious abandoned lighthouse.

Created for the HPS1 Summer of Shivers game jam, The Keeper is a short PS1 styled horror game that follows a fisherman who crashes his boat on a small island with a lighthouse. As you explore the island you see ghosts of the past and discover clues and notes left behind that give you hints about the tragic past of the inhabitants of the island.

Taking around 15 minutes to play through, it’s a beautifully told little story with a touching narrative and some excellent audio and visual design. The PS1 styled visuals work well and the voice acting is rather good (once you get used to the fisherman’s accent). Particularly enjoyable are all the little easter eggs (book titles, object descriptions, etc) that either contain nods to classic horror games or hint at what’s really going on in the island. Highly recommended.
