An action-horror puzzle game, LIT puts players in the role of Jake, a typical high school underachiever. When Jake's school is overrun by dark creatures resembling the school's faculty, it's up to him to find his way through the darkness in order to defeat them and find his girlfriend, Rachael. The only way to stay alive is to stay in the light. Taking full advantage of the Nintendo Wii™ hardware, players use a variety of light-based objects to get through each classroom, including lamps, oscillating fans, computers, televisions, broken windows, and motion sensor lights. It's up to the player to figure out how to bridge Jake's way across each classroom as he inches closer to discovering Rachael’s ultimate fate.
