Update #21

Candle confirmed for Wii U

You may have noticed a little slow down on our Update pace these days. Turns out, we've been really busy!! We really want to take Candle to Next-Gen consoles, so we immediately talked to Nintendo and showed them our precious game. They loved what we are doing at Teku Studios and have already confirmed us to be official Wii U developers! We have already requested the DevKits and should arrive anytime soon, so you can totally say that Wii U is officially a release platform for Candle. Yay!

We love Nintendo platforms since our childhood has been full of them, so it was natural for us to go for it. We are already thinking about dedicated gameplay on Wii U - we are not doing any kind of quick port. We will designe specific gameplay features for its gamepad: all the menus, inventory and minigames will be tactile-controled on the touchscreen, as well as other unique actions concerning Teku's candle. We will talk more deeply about this when we start developing all that stuff.

But what does this means in terms of stretch goals? Well, the Wii U one will still remain until the end of the campaign. This is a dedicated development, and so we need extra time and effort to do it correctly with the all-new features. If we could fund it, we would hire some extra professionals and make this a day-1 version, but if we don't reach it we can't promise this one to be a launch day version, unfortunately. It may take us some additional weeks.

Anyway, this is great news! Candle is now expanded into new, exciting Next-Gen platforms. Share your impressions with us!

Cheers,

-Mike

      Exacto, ¡todos juntos para hacer de Candle el mejor juego posible! Mientras más plataformas disfruten de Candle, mejor para Teku y para su siguiente proyecto.

      Bueno, bueno, ¡haya paz! Lo importante es que las grandes compañías apoyen a los estudios indies, y parece que así está siendo.

      @Antonio García repito, infórmate, no es que no cuesten dinero, es que Sony los esta ofreciendo gratis a muchos índies con proyectos interesantes, que por cierto muchos de ellos menos interesantes que este.

      @kuppy: You can get a copy of Candle either on Wii U or for PC, but not for both, with your current pledge. If you want multiple copies, you can up your pledge to one of the tiers that will reward you with more than one copy of the game.

      This is awesome.
      Do we have claim for the Wii U version with our normal pledges? I would have no problem higher my pledge to get the Wii U version.

      Btw. that picture uses the E3 2011 Wii U gamepad, not the final one.

      @VkBest: Al contrario, los kits no son gratis ni para Wii U ni para PS4. Y las unidades son vendidas, no distribuidas.

      Esperemos a que llegue Enero del 2014 y podremos ver cuales han sido las ventas totales de las 3 consolas.

      También te recuerdo que Europa no es todo el mundo, y existe un GRAN mercado para Candle en el resto del planeta.

      @antonio García, 3 millones y medio de unidades distribuidas que no vendidas,una consola que vende 10000 unidades en Europa en 3 meses esta muerta os pongáis como os pongáis, PS4 o XBOX one la van a superar en unidades en apenas 2 meses, si es que no les da la producción para hacerlo de salida. Y en cuanto a los kits de desarrollo infórmate que Sony también los da gratis.

      @VkBest: Considerando que la Wii U tiene 3.6 millones de unidades vendidas a nivel mundial contar cero unidades de la PS4 (y del XBO), además de todos los títulos de Nintendo a ser lanzados mes tras mes hasta mediados del 2014 los cuales ayudarán a incrementar el número de consolas de Wii U vendidas, no veo el problema de lanzar Candle en la Wii U.

      Agrega que el Kit de desarrollo no es caro, y que Nintendo REGALA una licencia de Unity Pro a los desarrolladores indie que realizan sus lanzamientos para la Wii U, y todo tiene sentido.

      @VkBest Wii U dista mucho de estar muerta, a nuestro juicio. Sobre PS4, echa un vistazo a nuestros stretch goals, verás que también tenemos intención de ello, en un futuro.

      Que hay de PS4? No entiendo esa manía de apostar por una plataforma muerta, sobre todo en Europa.

      @FreedGames We want to have Off-TV support, but we cannot confirm that since we still have to test it before we can announce that feature.

      @Raül We still don't know the details. But we want to offer the choice between computers (Windows, Linux or Mac) and console. We can't confirm it yet, unfortunately.

      Be we definitely want to do it, yes!

      You guys are amazing!! I've pledged for THE FULL DIGITAL PACKAGE, and my question is: when the time comes for the Wii U version to be ready, will you update the pledge options so that we can add this version to our current pledge? If not, I'll be enjoying the iOS version anyway. Warm regards from Barcelona!
