Devotion Developer Red Candle Games Teases New Release
Red Candle Games, the developer behind the controversial and critically lauded horror game Devotion, has revealed its next game.
In a short video posted to the studio's Twitter account, Red Candle showed off what appears to be a 2D, side-scrolling action game. The studio did not share a name for the new game, saying only that it was a work in progress.
Further details about the game remain under wraps.
Devotion initially sparked interest in 2019 as one of the most highly praised horror games in recent memory, but an asset found to compare Chinese president Xi Jinping to Winnie the Pooh sparked a firestorm that included the closure of Red Candle's Weibo account, the withdrawal of Chinese distributors, the removal of the game from Steam in China, and Red Candle's ultimate decision to pull the game from Steam internationally.
Devotion remained inaccessible until Red Candle made the game available to purchase through its website Tuesday.
