I think it's nice to take a break from the games that focus on war and conquest, that have you acting out pain and suffering on a global or galactic scale. Every now and then you just want something a little different. A little, shall we say, tranquil? Relaxing? Peaceful. Unfortunately, I can only think of a handful of games that fit the bill for what I'm looking to experience, it's very much a niche market at the moment, and At $6.99 on Steam the game is pretty reasonably priced considering what is being offered.
This is where Lantern comes in. Released on November 15th, published by a company called 1C and developed by another company named Storm in a Teacup it's an incredibly simple concept with equally simple gameplay mechanics. Bring color back to the world(s) as the wind guiding this little red lantern overhead while warmth and joy follow close behind.
This is not a challenging game. This is not a game that requires a great amount of thought or effort. But then, that's not the point of the game, and the people going in expecting some great and grand struggle to rid the world of some kind of 'darkness' will be disappointed. Lantern is a short 4-5 hour adventure that departs from the traditional routes in gaming to offer up something not often seen.
