Candleman burns brightly and exclusively on Xbox One

News Xbox One

The year hasn’t started too well for Xbox One. There’s a real lack of exclusive titles winging their way to the platform, but it’s not all doom and gloom, especially when indie developer Spotlightor Interactive is lighting the way with Candleman, an Xbox exclusive title, which pits you as candle (yes, a candle) that must find its way through each level before the light it can burn dies out – that’s 10 seconds of light.

Sounds weird right? Well check out the teaser below because it looks great, and let’s remember… It’s exclusive to Xbox One!

The puzzle element comes into play with the ability to choose when to burn your candlelight, but with only 10 seconds of light you can burn too quick too fast.

“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.”

Candleman hits Xbox One on February 1, 2017.
