Candleman Will Soon Bring Limited Light And Dripping Wax To The Xbox One

Illumination will be the key to progression, when Candleman soon makes its way to Microsoft’s Xbox One.

Through this design, players are only given ten seconds of light for each level, and must use it sparingly in order to progress through the game’s darkened and challenging environments. Why just ten seconds? Well, it just so happens that this game emerged from the 48 hour-long gam jam, Ludum Dare, where developers were tasked with incorporating a ten second time limit into their projects.
