Beautiful adventure game Candle seeking Kickstarter, Greenlight approval

Spanish developer Teku Studios is hard at work on its introductory game Candle, and is seeking $40,000 on Kickstarter by Friday, August 16 to pay for development costs. Candle is a platformer-meets-adventure game in which players guide a "shaman pupil" named Teku, rescuing fellow survivors of his village following an attack from a rival tribe.

Teku Studios' project video shows off some of the hand-painted watercolor backdrops for Candle, and discusses the "dynamic graphic adventure" style inspired by games like Out of this World and platforming elements from games such as Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. Teku Studios has raised $14,944 so far in its crowdfunding efforts, and is hoping to bring Candle to Steam through Greenlight. The developer plans to launch the game in January 2014 on PC.
