While the details are not shared by the team yet, we can understand that the new game won’t disappoint and would be a thrilling experience for gamers such as the previous titles on Steam.
Red Candle Games got their success with the past two titles, namely Devotion and Detention. Needless to say, Red Candle will share the details soon, too, as what the Taiwanese game developers will offer soon.
The two old titles have been nominated to be a part of Harvard-Yenching Library.
So honored that both #Devotion and #Detention are now part of collection at the Harvard-Yenching Library. Meanwhile, for the past year we're sorry for making you worried. Rest assured we'll keep develop games with the same passion. And thank you to all who still believe in us. pic.twitter.com/qdGEODab8F

The team has officially said that their inactivity has caused concerns for many fans for the past few years.
The team asks for support as they are in talks to make horror video games like the usual ones.
Both the games faced controversy and backlash
Both the games, Detention and Devotion, released in 2017 and 2019, respectively, faced a lot of backlash and critique banning the games.
Red Candle Games’ recent game, Devotion, was met with many negative remarks before Steam removed it from their service.
The Taiwanese game developer officially stated that the game suffered “technical issues,” but also cited an “Art Material Incident,” alluding to the outcry surrounding its supposed mocking of China’s President, Xi Jin Ping.
However, the horror game survived the backlash and had a physical release, but it is only available in Taiwan.
Since the game discussed issues happening with Taiwan’s modern history, these games were not a taste for all.
Developers have said that the Detention game is now on Google Play, and players can download and play anytime they want.
