Hi there

My name is Vincent Yang, Co-Founder of Red Candle Game, an indie game developer based in Taiwan. We have recently released a playable Demo to our latest production, Detention.

Detention is a unique 2D survival horror game heavily influenced by Taiwanese/East Asian culture (Taoism and Buddhism references) based on the 1960s Taiwan under martial law, providing the original art style and a spine-chilling atmosphere.
