Tales from Candleforth from Feardemic and Under the Bed Games is a folk horror adventure game on PS5. Learn more in our Tales from Candleforth review!


Tales from Candleforth from Feardemic and Under the Bed Games is a folk horror adventure game on PlayStation 5. For this one, you’ll be exploring a series of tales about magic that have been written down in a forbidden compendium that is now acting weirdly. You’ll be told that every time someone reads one of the tales from the book, it will end up changing, which is not how tales usually work! The book also has a test to present to each person who picks it up, and the test will be different for you or for me… or so it seems. As you can notice from the trailer in our Tales from Candleforth review,

Your journey will start at the library, which will act as the game’s tutorial section. You will move a cursor around the screen with the left analog stick or the right analog stick and will interact as needed by pressing the X button. This can be done to grab an object, remove an obstacle, take a look at something, and so on. You’ll be presented with a short puzzle of sorts to put this into action. By clicking on the blinking lamp at the top-right corner of the screen, you’ll notice a book that falls from the shelf. If you pick it up and keep the X button pressed, you can drag it into its former place. This will unlock the bookshelf so that you can drag it out of the way. Remove some dirty spiderwebs, and you’ll be able to reach the room at the top of the revealed stairs.

After completing this short puzzle, you’ll be introduced to Khal, a character with a large pumpkin for a head. Khal will ask that you look at the objects collected after many trips, and it’s then that you will find the titular Tales from Candleforth book. In the first story, you’ll learn about how the items you grab are added to your inventory on the icon on the right, and you can grab them when needed. This is shown by adding a letter to the inventory and then asking you to open your inventory to drag the letter into an envelope. It’s really that simple!

If you want to add another Platinum to your collection, then this one is a good option. It has a full list with 4 Bronze trophies, 12 Silver trophies, and 6 Gold trophies. Several of the trophies will pop when you progress through the story and complete the prologue and each of the story chapters. There are also some missable trophies you will have to work on as you complete puzzles, so be sure to keep your eyes open, pay attention to every detail, and try to complete puzzles without making any mistakes.

Tales from Candleforth is a folk horror adventure game. After interacting with the titular book, you’ll end up taking on a series of short stories where things get weirder and weirder. You can get an idea by looking at the game’s trailer of why this one gets a Rated T for Teen rating. Tales from Candleforth is available on PlayStation 5 with a $11.99 price.
