The year is somewhere in the 1950s. For reasons you can't entirely remember, you have been locked away from society. In this place, your memories are not your own. Your past, your present, and your future bleed together, and with the ever-present threat of electroshock therapy, none of them belong to you.

Loosely inspired by Janet Frame's work, this is a game about memory and time, and about how they are distorted by the claustrophobic, monotonous environment of a 1950s women's insane asylum in New Zealand.


This game is technically a sequel to Gaslight; however, you don't need to have played or be familiar with Gaslight to play.


Firelight is intended for female players. There are a couple of crew roles that can be filled by male players. (If you're non-binary it's up to you whether you feel comfortable playing, and I'm happy to discuss with you whether you'll fit in this game.)


Content warnings: Rape/sexual assault, child sexual abuse, some medical body horror
