From developer Spotlightor Interactive and publisher indienova comes Candleman, a 3D platformer leaping onto Nintendo Switch next month.
Candleman doesn't look quite like your usual platform game, with its pretty art style and use of lighting helping it to grab our attention right off the bat. In fact, the lighting acts as the game's main mechanic and players will need to use Candleman's flame to guide them on their journey.
The titular character isn't the strongest of protagonists, though, and can only burn for ten seconds at a time. You'll need to light up the environment around you to overcome the world's challenges and obstacles, all while managing your limited skill as best you can. We've got a selection of screenshots for you to check out below.
- Unique low-light gameplay;
- Beautiful, dynamic lighting effects;
- Challenging levels with a smooth difficulty curve;
- An immersive fairytale that highlights everyday issues.
The game is scheduled to launch on Switch on 3rd October, with pricing set at $14.99. You'll be able to download it directly from the Switch eShop.
