Candle May Light Up Wii U If It Reaches Its Stretch Goal
Posted by Andy Green
Update: Will come to Wii U eventually should original goal be met
It's come to light that Candle will eventually be developed for Wii U should the original goal be reached, regardless of whether or not it meets the $85,000 stretch goal. Speaking to Nintendo Enthusiast Teku Studios co-founder Miguel Vallés said it would come to Nintendo's system "sooner or later" but it would be delayed while the studio picked up additional funding. It's not clear where this money would come from, perhaps from hopeful profits, but it seems this lovely-looking game may see the light of day on Wii U after all.
Teku Studios is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to get its upcoming adventure title Candle onto PC and it could make it to Wii U if it reaches the relevant stretch goal.
The most interesting feature in this one is the fact Teku, the protagonist, has a candle instead of a hand. This can be lit up in certain spots and the aim of the game is to prevent it from being extinguished as certain puzzles cannot be completed without it.
According to the Spanish developer, it's inspired by cinematic adventure games like Out of This World and Flashback, while the gameplay takes a leaf or two from classic platformers like Abe's Oddysee and Heart of Darkness.
In order to make it to Wii U, the campaign must obtain $85,000, which will require a massive surge in investment considering time is running out. At the time of writing it has $11,840 of its $40,000 goal with 19 days left to go. Realistically, it's pretty unlikely this aesthetically pleasing game will make it to Wii U, but stranger things have happened.
