The main protagonist of the game is Miles Fordham – a private detective with experience of a police investigator, who is trying to solve the mysterious murder of his former partner, who in turn talks to Miles from beyond the grave.

When working on the game, the developers drew their inspirations from the works of both Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe.

The story campaign has been divided into five diverse cases. Each one is filled with false evidence and potential suspects. Player's decisions might have certain long-term consequences and lead to different story endings. The gameplay mechanics featured in Lamplight City for PC does not deviate much from the standards players know from other adventure games. The clear and intuitive interface is accompanied by the absence of the inventory menu, in which one usually stores the evidence – instead, the both the pieces of information and clues are saved in the special notepad.

The gameplay revolves around exploring the streets and houses located in the titular city, questioning the witnesses, and collecting pieces of evidence. A player is encouraged to explore numerous locations by the diverse styles of particular districts: the rich area of Gascoigne is inspired by the French Quarter in New Orleans, while the Worcester is inhabited by the working class.

Technical aspects

Lamplight City for PC stands out from similar games with its unique retro visuals following the pixel-art style. Despite its simplicity, both the elements of the environment and the character models are rich with details.
