A candle to the unknown is an idea developed by a small creative group located in Seville (Spain). Despite we don't have the means that other video game development companies have, we are working hard to make our first Point & Click commercial adventure sees the light, taking care of the pixelated design we want to give it, the ambiental music that accompanies this and the story line that we hope it immerse you completely in this story of horror and madness.

If you like graphic adventures and mystery... please, help us to take this game forward!
