Get some closure

Kotaku has been running a really good feature on indie games. Their most recent entry on Closure has pointed me to a game that is extremely original and atmospheric.

In it, you are a character that can only see by the light he carries. But Closure gives you a good reason to be afraid of the dark - you see (or don't see - ha ha), whereever the light isn't is where you can fall to your death. Mix a stylish scratchy art style with a moody soundtrack and you have a sinisterly clever puzzle game. It reminded me of the old Mac classic Dark Castle. (and that's a good thing!)

Worth playing!

I played this game when you first made this post. I thought it was pretty fun, and got quite challenging later on. Little did I know that it is actually made by a current sophomore at my school, DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Washington! I just thought that was just too cool not to share :)
