Daedalic and Teku Studios say
let's light this candle
as they announce the release of Candle
, a puzzle game for Windows, Linux, and OS
X. This is available on
, where they also offer an artbook and the game's soundtrack as DLC.
They shed more light on this in the
Candle release trailer
which shows off gameplay, and here's word:
Candle is a puzzle adventure
with demanding puzzles. Players take on the role of Teku, a young man bound to
rescue his tribe’s shaman from the vile Wakcha Clan. But the way is spiked with
traps and many trials. To master the way ahead, Teku has to pay close attention
to his suroundings and make good use of his deductive skills – or his journey
will come to an early end.
But Teku has a special gift: His left hand is a candle. He can use it as a torch
to fend off enemies or as a bright beacon to light dark places.
Candle’s unique charm comes from the beautifully hand-drawn watercolor visuals,
as all backgrounds, characters and objects have been individually painted and
scanned for the game. Every minute of Candle feels like a living painting.
