Reviews

"A beautiful masterpiece that everyone should try ... it might be the most compelling and beautiful indie game I’ve played all year."

- Alex Faciane, Gamezone
"The creepy atmosphere, the single-minded focus on extremely minimal actions, and the mocking self-awareness all contribute to a deft statement on games and how we play them."

- Garrett Martin, Joystiq
"Should you play this game? YES. [...] The confused people wonder if Little Inferno is even a game. The impressed people write about how, as they finished the game, they got choked up."

- Stephen Totilo, Kotaku

Little Inferno is a game I can remember very well because there isn't much too it. But little inferno is a fun game you get to burn things! Yeah that's right the whole game is about burning things. Well that's not all the game but that's the main part of the game. You get mail from your weird neighbor and the weather man and some weird lady. I can't give anything important away so that's all I can really say. When you purchase the game you also get its music in the Music section on steam. The game has a surprising amount of story to it and as you burn things more of the story will come. It's a cool game but you'll go through it relatively quickly I beat the game in 2hrs. So just know that you beat it quickly but you can still burn things at the end of the game if you want. :)

One of the best games I've played in a while. The gameplay simple but engaging and the story is humerous but also very atmospheric. This game has a lot of heart and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun little game to play.

"Little Inferno" has been out for a few years now, but I only just encountered it as part of the Steam 2016 summer sale. It's quirky, weird, and oddly engrossing. You're a kid with not much, but you do have a magic fireplace and a directive to burn stuff because it's apparently been snowing forever outside. Everything given to you can (and should) be set on fire, and fortunately you can do this just by pointing at it (holding down controller or mouse button as appropriate).

I'll be honest and admit it was the two preview videos on the Steam store page which caused me to have to buy the game. I just couldn't not. It's like being inside an episode of Ren & Stimpy.

As you burn stuff, it produces coins which you can then use to purchase more items to burn, and as you buy more items, it unlocks more catalogs of stuff to buy. (Bit of a consumerism message in there, I should think.) The only real challenge sometimes is figuring out all of the various combinations of items which, when burned together, produce bonuses and little achievement messages. (I'll give you one obvious combo: Pirate toy + boat.) At times, you receive letters from people -- Miss Nancy, who apparently runs the Little Inferno program. A girl in the same predicament as you. And a weather guy in a balloon. (Yes, you burn their letters, too.)

After you've burned everything you can burn... well, let's just say the ending is pretty good. Not so sure the game is worth the original list price unless you have more than one person in your household, but it is absolutely worth the price when on sale. At least I thought so.

Burning stuff is fun!

* Alchemy game.
You have to guess what combines with what.
* Dark humor.
Wish it was a bit less depressing...
* Story that unfolds.
That actually caught me by surprise.
* Not too long.
Those days I'm grateful for short games that I can actually finish.

To this day it amazes me, how conclusive the ending turned out to be for this simple smartphone screen tapping simulator. Way more epic, than anybody would rightfully expect for the game of such caliber.
Plus, it's a ton of fun to burn things for us, pyromaniacs!

Thank you for making this game, Tomorrow Corp. guys

I found this game really good. All you do is Burn things, Shop, And find combos...But this game is really fun!


Now i don't know about 10 dollars for the game, but i got the game for around 5 dollars myself!

But i have no reason not to recommend this game.

It's fun.

You get to burn random items! (Including stuffed animals, food, Credit cards, Tiki torches, THE DARN SUN!XD)

Alot of combos...

Though there is a con or two like the music in this game can be really loud! and it cost 10 dollars for the game.

But i enjoy it infact i beat the game in about 1 one day!

But i reccommend buying this game ESPECIALLY when it's on sale!
