Really nice game! There is so much to explore and the movement with the candle was realistic! Keep it up!

I'm sure the game is great but I couldn't get very far. The candle kept going out and I'd get reset if I moved even slightly too quickly. It would be a cool mechanic but both the candle and the controls are way too sensitive. It was very frustrating to play. I didn't even get into the building.  


This game has a very high sensibility so is very hard to play it and is very baffling; you dont know what you should do, why you die...

true the sensitivity is high you got that right

It's definitely unique but the flame going out when you move too quick makes the game a bit tedious, other than that it was really great and had a very strange and spooky atmosphere. 


The player moves too slow...

There’s nothing more important than losing time =)


cute character

The game is very interesting as it makes you care alot about your candle and what the npc is saying. I only wish that turning around didn't put out your candle so quickly.

Really enjoyed this, was not what I was expecting. The dialogue really got me thinking too

Its a very strange walk through a very strange road.

so strange creepy


I am an insanely big fan of this game. No idea whats going on at any point. Love it. 

I have no idea what to do in this game :) i keep being respawned when trying to light my candle? i dont know.

Sorry about that, you might’ve hit a bug (or a balancing issue we are currently trying to fix). Can you actually light the candle up? Or do you respawn immediately after going through bonfire? What platform is this?

I think I can light it up, but i respawn after i hit the fire, and spawn different places too sometimes. Im on windows

I am encountering the same issue. Cool game though.

No .exe file in the game how to run?

What platform was this?


You have to extract the .zip and then run the unity file titled "vela". It should have its own image on the icon.
