The Owl and Lighthouse is an idle story collection game featuring a set of dark fairy tales dedicated to the lonely and longing. Beginning in the depths of an expansive, old forest, a silent old man and a talkative owl live in a lighthouse where lost visitors pass by and share their adventurous stories. But you’ll soon come to realize these travelers share unexpected connections, with your in-game choices affecting their destinies.
During the game you must collect wood from the forest to produce wood carving, then bring it back to the lighthouse for visitors to collect the carvings. They’ll reciprocate by telling you a story from their adventures. Each loop takes only five minutes, and then you close the app until the next traveler arrives.
The Owl and Lighthouse is a tranquil, slower game than most. Instead of burning your brain on a difficult puzzle or breaking your fingers on a fast combo, you’re instead encouraged to embrace the idleness and randomness it presents to you, as the developer didn’t want to create a game that requires too much focus.
