Inspired both by 'walking-sim' games like Firewatch and What Remains of Edith Finch and point-and-click adventure games from the 90s, Keeper lets the player explore a retro lighthouse that is powered by a Native American fire spirit. Players will move through the captivating environments of the lighthouse and perform maintenance tasks to make sure everything is operational with only their trusty clipboard to guide them.

From here, players will have to complete a night shift of watching the bay for roaming earth spirits in a "missile control" like mini-game. Use the mouse to control the lighthouse's beam to banish wandering spirits before they sink any of the ships!
