Game Information

Available on:PCNov 11, 2016

Developers: Daedalic Entertainment, Teku Studios

Genre: Adventure

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.

8.5 / 10.0

Candle is a videogame that does not stay in its artistic beauty, but also has deep gameplay mechanics and a world full of details. One of the best surprises of the year.

Today is a day to enjoy a great adventure. The users of consoles have been dismissed very fortunate to be able to go to the end of the work of Teku Studios. Work that combines the best of the classic graphic adventures of the years with more action and more contemporary studies like Playdead or Amanita Design. An authentic jewel of those that do not abound and in which to get lost in these summer days.

Billed as a dynamic graphic adventure, Candle sure delivers on that claim.
