I know this is only 30% off but it is one of my favourite indie games and worth every penny. It has an 80 on OpenCritic and a game not many people know about.

Heated, nice to see an indie game get some limelight instead of AAAs all the time! I'm going to get this one.

You won't be disappointed as it really is a special little game
The one thing that puts me off is the idea that it could end up being on games with gold. That said... it's good to support an indie developer so have some heat. Looks good.
Is this on the same lines as inside and little nightmares?

In terms of being a atmospheric puzzle platformer with accessible controls yeah I would compare it to those two games.
Worth pointing out that there is some free DLC for this game too that adds some more levels and achievements. So don't forget to pick that up too.

This is great as it extended the ending and it should hopefully be added as an update for everyone that owns the game without the need to seek it out.

Thanks, Will be getting it as I love them type of games.
Played the first three chapters and I like it a lot, though wasn't sure at first. IMHO the first level doesn't really give the best impression of the game, you have to persevere with it a bit, the total darkness, a necessary mechanic admittedly, makes those early stages feel a bit cramped and constricted. At first I could not believe how quickly the candle burns out - it lasts less than a match would burn for, but again all necessary as conserving your wax is a big part of the challenge. Very fun and unique game once you get into it and the lighting effects, as one would hope in a game about light, are fantastic.

Only thing is I think personally chapters one and two should be reversed as I found the second chapter actually much easier and more forgiving than the first and is not in total darkness so would make a gentler introduction, but a minor point overall...
