A cave-in has separated Simon, the highly prepared archaeologist, from his equipment. With nothing but a head lamp and his wits, Simon would very much like to stay alive long enough to return his notes to The Academy for study.

He must get creative with his hat as he discovers hostile creatures, ancient locks, and hints of a terrible monster lurking in the depths. After such a treacherous journey, a promotion wouldn't hurt either.


  • Over 150 challenging levels
  • Classic platforming with a novel approach to headgear
  • Story-centric level design
  • Unlockable secrets
  • Many, many ways to lose your hat

Enroll as an explorer for The Academy and become the first to discover this Steam Greenlighted treasure! (Steam release planned for July 2016. Purchase now and get a Steam key on release.)

Why a Super Secret Soft Launch?

Adventure Lamp has been in development for just over a year now. Because I am not a marketer or a business guru, the stakes are fairly high to get the game launch right the first time. I decided Itch was a great place to get some practice launching the game and receive some feedback. If anything was amiss, I wouldn't be throwing a year's worth of work out the window.

For exploring this early and being just generally awesome, I am giving the game to you for only $5, which is at least 50% off the full launch price.

Why a secret though? Because holy moley are secrets fun!
