NOMINEE INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION
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.
The game was developed by: Teku Studios
About Teku Studios
Teku Studios, based in Teruel, Spain, has been founded in 2012 by two students with a passion for video games. The indie team focuses on motives created with traditional media: all visuals are painted carefully with watercolors by hand. The goal here is to not only create an engaging game, but also an enthralling visual experience in virtual worlds. Their artistic skills and a knack for creating individual gameplay show very clearly in their first game: Candle.
