Beautiful Spanish adventure game, Candle, raising $40,000 on Kickstarter
I’m not a huge fan of backing Kickstarter games, as I prefer to support an indie game developer once the game is finished, but there is a gorgeous Spanish adventure game, Candle, that’s currently trying to raise $40,000 on Kickstarter and I’ll definitely be backing it.
Candle is being developed by Spanish developer Teku Studios and is quite a long way already towards being finished, as the game has been in development for a couple of years with everyone on it working without pay.
Now they’re asking for just $40,000 to pay for final bills and costs and to possibly add some extra content, so that they can stay ‘independent’ and so that the game will be completely ready for its January, 2014 release.
As for the adventure game itself, Candle is completely created with hand-painted watercolors and, thus, is absolutely gorgeous. A real little gem.
That’s why, if you’re looking for a quick Kickstarter to fund, I highly recommend Candle.
It looks stunning, the developers are Spanish (and God knows, we all know how bad the economy is in Spain, so wouldn’t it be nice to help fund some young Spanish game developers?) and, for only 10 bucks (if you’re fast before the $10 level is completely sold out), you’ll get a digital copy of the game when it releases.
For more information on Candle, watch Teku Studios Kickstarter presentation below. Now isn’t that a lovely game?
EDIT: August 7th, 2013 — All the $10 Early Bird levels have now been backed, but there are still plenty of $15 levels available. Plus, for the extra 5 bucks you get a digital comic that tells all about the story of Teku. What ARE you waiting for?
