Special Thanks to:
Hule Studios for making their Custom Text scripts free!
Rebecca for keeping me sane and supporting me throughout this 48 hour journey :) Also for making most of the art and the game-over music.
-Currently if you restart a room in which you've lit a torch the room stays lit no matter what.
-The text on the final level in bugged. It switches between black and white and changes size if you get a game over.
Thanks for playing!

Really interesting take on the theme, I loved it.
The game looks good and it's polished enough, all the ideas for a full game are here, it just lacks content.

I love the concept! The dual use of lighting the room and adjusting your size is very cool. I'd love to play more levels!
Very solid game and unique. Great job!

It's a big shame this is so short. I really liked the ideas behind the mechanics, but it felt like they didn't get enough time to be explored to their fullest. For what it is now, the graphics look great and help to generate a nice atmosphere. I really like the way Wicki shrinks as you use the light. The sound is a bit limited, but it works well enough.
Thank you so much for the feedback! Yes, I really wish I could've added more levels/concepts to the game. This was my first jam ever, and I spent the large majority of my time building out the framework, and almost none making levels. It was a great learning experience, and now I might see what I can do post-jam.

The concept is excellent and the mechanic is perfect for the theme.
Too bad is so short, I really liked. Are you planning to keep working on it?

I thought that was awesome, and did an excellent job of making a mechanic out of the theme! I thought the art, lighting effects, and the text worked really well to establish an atmosphere and style for the game. Perhaps a soft ambient background sound during the game, and maybe a quiet burning sound for when the candle is lit, would be a good addition? Great job!

Your concept of a candle melting to gain light is really cool (it's even realistic)! The execution was flawless and left me wanting to play more. If you make more levels and work more on sound effects and music, this game could be really fun (the game over music was great, by the way). Keep up the good work!
Adventure Byte Level 12
Wow, I really liked the concept and the execution. Well done! I enjoyed Wicki's changing hitbox and how you can light torches to help you along the way. I also like the title font, it fits the style of the game.
More levels to explore and complete would be nice but it was a cool game nonetheless!
Short and sweet! I would've liked to play a few more and longer levels.
