'Candleman: The Complete Journey' (ALL) Gets PC Date - Screens & Trailer

Candleman is a puzzle platformer where you control a little candle and are tasked with finding the way through each dark adventure with only 10 seconds of candlelight per level.

In Candleman, players travel through nine chapters of awe-inspiring and mythical adventures, a total of 36 levels that become increasingly difficult to explore and navigate. They must beware of dangers in the dark beyond deadly falls and running out of candlelight - Candleman will need to surpass raving furnaces, bottomless depths, menacing ghosts, massive machinery and more throughout his journey to find the distant light. While Candleman drips precious candlewax on the floor from illuminating his wick, he gains one major advantage - the decreased weight allows him greater maneuverability and jumping height to leap over obstacles.

Candleman features lush environments, dynamic lighting and fantastical challenges that respond to the introduction of candlelight in the ever-oppressive darkness. The premise is elegantly simple: help a small candle find his way through the dark with only 10 seconds of candlelight available per level.

This new edition of the game, which first launched to critical praise on Xbox One in 2017, includes the previously released “Lost Light” DLC, a new time challenge mode, enhanced performance and framerate optimizations, and 4K resolution support.

“The game’s positive reception from press and players overwhelmed us for the whole year after its debut on Xbox One,” said Gao Ming, creator of Candleman. “We are extremely proud to see the game we created at Ludum Dare 27 be recognized by so many, and we’re incredibly excited to bring this journey to PC players later this month.”

Key Features:

  • Play as an unconventional flawed protagonist: a little candle who can only illuminate for 10 seconds.
  • Face unexpected and challenging obstacles which rely on light and shadow play.
  • Experience an immersive perilous gameplay environment.

Candleman: The Complete Journey will arrive on PC via Steam on Jan. 31 for $14.99.
