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

Does what it says on the tin. Burn things, earn coins, buy more things to burn. Repeat.
Game is charming, fairly relaxing, and at times maybe a bit creepy.

Why? Why do I always keep buying these innocent-looking games and find that there's a much darker pretense to it?

... (Sigh)... Well, might as well get on with the review. Little Inferno is a simple game with a simple premise and simple gameplay: Burn things in your Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace. All that you do is buy stuff from catalogues, stick them in the fireplace and burn them. Seems simple, right? (laughs maniacally) YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S HIDING BEHIND THE CUTSEY EXTERIOR!

If you've played other games by this developer, like World of Goo, you know that there's more than meets the eye, and it WILL make you uncomfortable and almost emotional. Not that I'm saying it's a BAD thing, it's just... Holy crap, the twists and turns this game takes are just... wow.

I'll highly recommend this game to you at a whopping 9/10, for flaming fun and incredibly brilliant writing. Now, sing with me.

Hey, kids! Do you like toys? Know what`s more fun then play with toys? SETTING THEM ON FIRE!!

I have passed this game 4 times. All catalogs was completed for gold and all combos was found.

So, In this game you can burn everything, that you wanted to burn. Starting with credit cards, ending up stars and planets. Every of this you can burn and find combos to unlock next catalog.

Personally, I liked the sounds in this game, there realy good.

If you feel the story of main character - little boy, which burns everything, this game will leave you with positive memories for a long time. Final of this game is realy great (without spoilers)
This game is definitely worth this $5. Thank you, Tomorrow corporation, for this great indie game.

There's a lot more to Little Inferno than meets the eye, but let's start with the basics. Do you like to burn things? If, like me, your answer is YES!, then the Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace is for you! Additionally, if the idea of squashing and/or burning spiders appeals, then this product is also for you. If neither of these hold long term appeal, never fear - you can collect coins and purchase products (to burn and begin the process again). Everyone enjoys purchasing digital junk! Not you? Well, what about progressing through catalgoues and collecting GOLD STARS? And COMBOS. What about combos? Everyone likes combos!

It's this commentary that makes Little Inferno great - it has something to say about the state of games, about itself, about you. Yes, it is a ridiculous game, but you'll get more than you bargained for from it - or at least you should.

So, how does Little Inferno actually play?

Well, it's best described in three easy steps:
Step 1: Burn items.
Step 2: Collect coins.
Step 3: Purchase items.
Rinse and repeat.

But I'm not a pyromaniac. What's the point?

The point is to burn your way through catalogues of items to unlock new catalogues of items to burn. If you're a completionist, you can get gold stars on all of your catalogues. If this (understandably) isn't enough, there's combos - these are likely what you'll spend most of your play time on. These are Little Inferno's puzzle aspect. From the title of the combo, you have to work out which items to burn together to achieve the combo. This gets a bit trickier towards the end when you have multiple catalogues of items to choose from. That's about it for Little Inferno's gameplay. As for the /point/, well, you'll have to find that out for yourself.

But, as much as there is more to this game...

10/10 - would spend a day burning fake items in a fake fireplace again
