Teku Studios


Candle is a 2D adventure game with challenging puzzles. Play as Teku, a young man on a dangerous journey to rescue his tribe's shaman from the evil tribe of the Wakcha. The way is littered with sinister traps and difficult obstacles: to master these challenges, you need to have keen eyes and a good sense for your environment, or your next step may be your last.

But Teku has a special gift: his left hand is a candle. Let it be a bright beacon to drive off your enemies or to shed light on dark places.

Gorgeous truly hand-painted watercolor visuals give Candle that special flair, as all backgrounds and characters for the entire game have been carefully drawn and painted using real watercolours, then scanned, picture after picture. The game consistently feels like a living painting.
