SMALL ISLAND WOES: Solve the Problems of a Lighthouse on a Small Island in this Horror Game

Smalls Island Woes is an indie simulation and horror game produced by davidrodmad and published on April 14, 2020, on the indie gaming platform In the game, you try to solve the problems of a lighthouse located on a small island. There you interact with its inhabitants, enter the lighthouse and do your job. However, as the weeks go by, both the inhabitants and the island begin to act strangely, but despite that, it is up to you to continue your work, no matter what kind of bizarre situation may happen there.

The game itself presents an atmospheric horror: it does not use jump scares to scare the player, but audio content, physical manifestations of the inhabitants, conversations with them and even changes inside the lighthouse. The graphics are in a more retro style, more precisely in the 32-bit style with simple polygons and low resolution, which strongly resembles the visual style of the PSX, the famous Sony console. The gameplay is simple, but it goes well with this style of play, more focused on simulation and immersion.
