Posted by on Jul 23, 2018

Hi! I’m José A. Gutiérrez, the Creative Director of a small Spanish indie developer called Teku Studios. I’d like to tell you about our first game, Candle: The Power of the Flame. It is a 2D adventure and we’ve been working on it for a few years now. I’m so excited that PS4 gamers will finally be able to enjoy it.
