PRAGUE, Czech Republic, July 14th 2016 – 1C is happy to announce that it will be bringing peace and harmony to PC gamers with Lantern. Developed by Storm in a Teacup, this particular take on gaming in East Asian-inspired environments is designed to evoke a general sensation of positivity. It achieves this with a laid-back pace, mellow gameplay and pleasing visuals, fostered by an ambient East Asian soundtrack. Straightforward gameplay and simple controls go hand-in-hand with the game’s relaxing vibes, making it easy for players to just sit back and enjoy a few tranquil moments of stress-free gaming.

Lantern will be released on PC in November 2016, with support for both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, allowing players to further immerse themselves in its unique environment. A playable build will be available and presented at Gamescom 2016 in Cologne this August.

The lyrical story of Lantern takes us to an imaginary world, inspired by East Asian nature and architecture. A sad princess has spread a veil of anguish over the land, and all of the color and life has been drained away. But joy and love are slowly finding their way back, through a magical Red Lantern that roams the lands, gradually ridding them of sorrow and dreariness. The players’ task is to guide the lantern through the environment, spreading color and joy to everything in its path.

About the game

“Once upon a time, there was a very sad princess. She felt so unloved and unhappy that everything around her became grey and lifeless, and the entire land was deprived of color and joy. Our fable begins when a single, lonely lantern was lit in a faraway village…”

Be the wind and guide a beautiful sky lantern that spreads the powerful message of everlasting love, bringing life and color back to the world around you. Enjoy four beautiful East Asian-inspired worlds, each with a different theme, nature and architecture. Fly the magical red lantern as it spreads vibrant, happy colors throughout these sad, grey lands.

The influence of the lantern’s light not only changes the color of the world, but also has various other effects, such as igniting other lamps, restoring animals to life, and making windmills start spinning. Ultimately success will come once the kingdom is full of color and happiness has returned to the land.

  • Bring the powerful message of everlasting love to four East Asian-inspired worlds
  • Create wonderful lantern festivals, spreading warmth and joy
  • Restful music and peaceful sounds will accompany you on your journey
  • Immerse yourself in a relaxing experience – a virtual coloring book with an aesthetic atmosphere
  • Virtual Reality support (Oculus Rift and HTC Vive)
