Hello Games, the English studio behind No Man’s Sky and Joe Danger, announced The Last Campfire tonight. While they’re still working on No Man’s Sky, this is a game they classify as a “Hello Games Short”, a wee side-project made by two of their team. Those two worked on LostWinds, the colourful platformer about controlling the wind, so they know a thing or two about cute adventures. Here, have a peek in the announcement trailer.

The Last Campfire

Hello Games has unveiled The Last Campfire, the studio's first new project since its space exploration sim No Man's Sky launched in 2016.

The Last Campfire is predominantly the work of two people within Hello Games - Steven Burgess and Chris Symonds, respectively the lead designer and lead artist on Frontier Developments' fondly remembered Wii platform adventure LostWinds.
