The Switch eShop continues to bring us a whole host of new and interesting games. Coming up in July is Candle: The Power of the Flame, which is an action-adventure game presented in glorious watercolour. Published by Merge Games, this game was developed by Spanish indie developer Teku Studios, and it certainly looks promising.
Here's a bit about the game from the press release:
Teku is a “Light-Guide” in the service of Yaqa, the Tumaykú tribe’s shaman. However, the honour bestowed upon Teku came at a price - the removal of one of his hands and its replacement with a magical candle that would never run down. The fate of the Tumaykú tribe is now in the balance. An attack by the hated Wakcha clan has left the village in flames and, worse still, Yaqa is nowhere to be seen! Sworn to protect his master, Teku must venture forth and right the wrongs of the Wakcha, save his master and protect his candle’s flame at all costs.
Candle: The Power of the Flame’s visuals are presented as beautiful hand-drawn watercolour images - all the layered backgrounds, characters and objects have been individually painted and scanned into the game. It feels as though you are playing a living painting. Candle: The Power of the Flame is an action adventure with an emphasis on solving puzzles and surviving a hostile environment. The combination of the remarkable graphics, simple yet testing gameplay and beautiful South American flavoured soundtrack all conspire to make Candle: The Power of the Flame and experience you won’t forget.
Candle: The Power of the Flame is set for release on the Switch eShop at the end of July 2018 – priced at (£14.99, €19.99, $19.99). A Switch retail version of the game will follow at the end of August (priced £24.99, €29.99, $29.99).
