Wick is a beautifully animated and very tense Little Nightmares-esque stealth horror platforming adventure where a cute little candle tries to light up a huge cathedral while being hunted by a demonic nun.
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer during the Beta Sign Up, Wick is a stealth horror adventure created by a group of students at Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy. In the game you control a little candle (called Jean Wick) who has been dropped on the floor after the monk that was carrying him succumbed to a deadly plague. You must now complete the dead monk’s mission to light up the cathedral, but you also have to deal with giant insects that sap your wax and a demonic nun who is keen to extinguish your flame.
Taking around 25 minutes to play through, Wick is a beautifully crafted little adventure with an incredibly high level of polish and a very tense atmosphere. The audio and visual design is superb and the nun really instils you with a sense of fear as she stalks you in the oppressive darkness. It’s the little things that really make the game feel special though – such as the pitter-patter of Jean’s little feet, the way the shadows move as your flame passes objects and the extremely your flame dances across the candles as it lights them up. A beautifully crafted nightmare well worth shining a light on. Highly recommended.
