Lantern is an indie game inspired by East Asian nature and architecture. The game is being developed by Storm in a Teacup and published by 1C. Lantern is designed to evoke a general sensation of positivity. It achieves this with a laid-back pace, mellow gameplay, and pleasing visuals, fostered by an ambient East Asian soundtrack.
