Too poor to call a generic RPG character to do the job

Another game for the SPOOKATHON coming right up! You think walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night was bad? How about trying to get to the basement of a drafty old house? An old drafty house that has been absolutely infested by little supernatural horrors? Kind of a step up in difficulty. That's the premise behind Candles, released March 10th of 2011.  Have a trailer.
A letter of warning tells you that while you were gone a bunch of hateful, territorial little imps took up residence in your house (Who let them in? Probably those scumbag neighborhood kids). That's bad. But you can kill them with light! That's good. Your house has no power. That's bad. But you can use, you guessed it, candles to make it to the basement to turn the power back on to get all of the lights back on. Have fun trying to get there.
Candles can be compared to Amnesia, from its first person perspective spookiness, and the monsters you have no real way to fight (aside from light). The graphics look great, especially for a game made by one person on the unity engine. There have been some fixes since the original release so they game should be solid, bug wise.
All that stands between you and painful death
If any of that sounds appealing to you, or you still need something to toughen you up so you can stop being afraid of the dark, or you like Amnesia, or maybe you'd like a job where you're a supernatural exterminator, but you want to practice because you don't think you're on the same level as the Ghostbusters yet, then you should give Candles a try.
You can't beat the Ghostbusters, I mean c'mon
