Team: Youchun, Luqi

The Lamplighter is a single-player expressive game. The game is about the repetitiveness and boredom of life. We are inspired by the story of Sisyphus, in which the absurd hero is punished to endure an eternity of hopeless struggle. However, even in this endless repetition, we can still get the joy from the randomness in life.

Throughout the game, the player plays the role of a lamplighter who has to light up and put out the lights every day based on the time. This game tries to guide the user to explore a similar situation as Sisyphus and emphasize on the meaninglessness.
