About Candle

About this game

Candle is an adventure with challenging puzzles. Play as Teku, a young novice on a dangerous journey to rescue his tribe's shaman from the evil tribe of the Wakcha. But the way is littered with sinister traps and difficult obstacles. To master these challenges, you need to have keen eyes and a good sense for your environment, or your next step may be your last.

But Teku has a special gift: his left hand is a candle. Let it be a bright beacon to drive off your enemies or to shed light on dark places.
Gorgeous hand-painted watercolor visuals give Candle that special flair, as all backgrounds and characters have been carefully drawn and then scanned, picture after picture. The game consistently feels like a living painting.

Features:

  • Pay attention to all details to solve challenging puzzles
  • Always be on guard, the next trap lies in waiting
  • You hold the power of the flame in your hand
  • Hand-painted watercolor drawing, a painting coming to life
  • Gorgeous soundtrack with South-American Flair
