Teku Studios‘ puzzle adventure convinces through unique design.

Check out the trailer here.

Quote:
Hamburg, February 25 th 2016. Daedalic Entertainment releases the puzzle adventure Candle with Teku Studios.
Candle challenges players with sophisticated puzzles and traps. What makes this adventure special is not only its challenge rating, though, but also its distinctive visual style: The game’s backgrounds and characters were not painted digitally, but instead are hand-made and based on watercolor paintings, imbuing the game with a very unique style. Candle will be released in Q2 of 2016 for PC, Mac and Linux.

About Candle:
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 darkplaces.

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.

Features:
è Pay close attention to all details to solve the challenging puzzles
è Players will be able to tap into the power of the flame
è Remarkable visual style: hand-painted watercolor images will make the game a vivid painting
è Beautiful soundtrack with South American flaire


Happy Gaming!

It is different Mad and has some platformer qualities but it does look good! I like the graphics a lot!

By "platformer qualities," do you mean timed stuff, jumping and arcade stuff?

Thanks, that is what I suspected. I don't have the reflexes or desire for that kind of play. I'm one of those noodle around and solve puzzles types. lol

Totally agree guys. Daedalic have made some of the best 3pp point & click adventures over the last few years but I don't like their current direction. Silence was THE most frustrating game with balancing games and stupid dot to dot puzzles! Aaaaaagh!
Please Daedalic, we don't want jumping and quick time stuff. Go back to what you do best. Games like Deponia, Anna's Quest, Night of the Rabbit etc.

Daedalic is a publisher as well as a developer. The developer of this game is Teku Studios. Daedalic also publishes lots of DarkSide games that are very popular. There are lots of platformer lovers, it is a popular genre. They will continue to develop adventures and on the same note, they will publish an assortment of other genres.

Thanks Ana. I appreciate Daedalic publish other genres. As they are probably the most prolific of only a handful of developers making "pure" adventure games, I got overly excited!!!!
