Before you ask, what is Candleman? Well that’s a great question to ask. Candleman, published by E-Home Entertainment and developed by Spotlightor Interactive, is a puzzle platformer that will place players in control of a little candle tasked with finding the way through each dark adventure with only 10 seconds of candlelight per level.
Players embark on each in-game level with a full-size Candleman equipped with the ability to produce 10 full seconds of candlelight. Beware the darkness and those dangers that inhabit it, but know that each use of candlelight results in melted candlewax, generating a lighter and more maneuverable Candleman. Take care to safeguard your remaining candlelight; should you use your 10 seconds entirely, you’ll surely perish in the darkness.
“Candleman represents a concept that anyone can understand – seeking light in darkness – and creates an intriguing platformer around that core idea,” said E-Home Entertainment’s Marketing Director, ManQiao Wang. “The simplicity of the game combined with the intrigue of Candleman’s story and the worlds he must travel through are what distinguish the experience. Working with Microsoft and Spotlightor to bring Candleman to the world is an incredibly rewarding project for our team.”
