Description

Red Candle Games is formed by a group of game enthusiasts from Taiwan. We are passionate about crafting the most immersive gaming experiences through both storytelling and innovative gameplay.

History

History

Founded in September 2015 by six individuals from various backgrounds. At first, the team was united because of one game, Detention, and the goal was to create a game that enable us to illustrate Taiwanese culture and history. As the project progressed, and as more team members started to devote full time to the development, we realized our passion for game making has lead us to the establishment of a game company.

Detention

The team's first major title, Detention, a 2D survival horror game for PC, Mac and Linux, released on January 2017. The game is based in Taiwanese/Chinese culture and mythology, resulting in some unique graphics and gameplay.
