During the Inside Xbox broadcast, we got our first glimpse at what a small team within Hello Games has been working on, an adorable yet dark puzzle platformer by the name of The Last Campfire.
The game’s lead designer Steven Burgess gave gamers a walkthrough of the first few minutes of the game, describing the game as a passion project and noting that it had been in development for a few years now. He also noted the game has a lot of dark fantasy elements, likening it to The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.
As Ember, you push on through a beautiful and perilous world to free flames, reignite hope and solve riddles that tend to revolve around Ember’s penchant for creating light.
The Last Campfire is a quaint little game that looks more in line with the workings of an independent studio, straying far from the scope that No Man Sky promised before its disastrous launch.
The Last Campfire is set to release sometime this year for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC.
