A candle to the unknown | A story of horror Logo


Here is a short list with some of the most frequently asked questions. However, if you have any doubts and want to contact us to solve it, you can send us your query from HERE.

Who we are?

We are a small creative group composed of two people who, despite not having the means that other companies dedicated to the development of video games have, this have the illusion and the desire to carry out their first project: A Candle to The Unknown.

What is A Candle to the Unknown?

A candle to the unknown is a graphic adventure of the 'Point & Click' genre with a pixelated aesthetic that it will immerse you in a story of horror, fantasy and mystery. Along the game, where you will go through a variety of sceneries, you will assume the role of Werther and other different characters embraced by a cloak of madness.

For what platforms is it available?

In principle, the prologue (the first functional demo) is only available for Windows and Mac plataforms. However, we want this game to appear, in addition to these two platforms, in Linux, Android and iOS .

In what languages is the game available?

It is currently only available in Spanish and English. However, if there are enough interest... who knows!, it may be possible to translate it into other languages.

How can I help it keeps moving forward?

The game is being developed by two people, who are in charge of designing the characters and scenarios, programming the content, composing the music and locating everything in two languages. That is why all help is welcome. If you want to collaborate in some way in concrete (making a translation to a specific language, contributing a donation, helping with the design...) you just have to contact us through info@acandletotheunknown.com. Also, if you want to provide some ideas, you can write us with this intention.
