Beautiful adventure games aren’t only developed but also published by Daedalic Entertainment, as can be seen in Teku Studios‘ puzzle platformer Candle.
Questioning if games could look like art shouldn’t be a concern anymore, and if one considers the hand-painted watercolor visuals of this title, it should be the final nail into the coffin of conservative anti-gaming thinking. The story about Teku, a young man who is out to rescue his tribe’s shaman from an evil clan, might be simple, but this shouldn’t be a major concern when playing a game this beautiful with a South-American soundtrack that is just as impressively different from other titles.
Using Teku’s left hand that is a candle to drive away enemies or shine light into dark corners of a level already shows that this isn’t your typical point-and-click adventure game. It might have lots of puzzles, but it also has a few tricky platformer sections, so people who can’t cope with frustration should better be prepared. Still, it would be shame to skip a title with such vibrant levels full of small details, as each screen is very similar to an amazing painting.
The game is now available on PC with a 10% discount that will last until November 18, 6:59 PM UTC. Of course there’s also the German retail version to buy as well.
