Hard to believe, but Tomorrow Corporation’s Little Inferno is being released this week. It almost seems like yesterday that they revealed it. Where did the time go? Man, I’m getting old.
Releasing a game in which nobody even knows the genre or style of play is a terrible idea, so I guess the The World of Goo and Henry Hatsworth developers had to have released something before their fiery creation launches. Even with the gameplay right in front of me, I’m still not entirely sure what is going on. It’s a puzzle game, no doubt, but it seems that toys are just bought for the sake of being burned. The ashes also regard the chimney as a kind of holy destination, creating a dark and poetic sense of humor unmistakably similar to World of Goo.
Regardless of whether or not any of this makes any sense at all, World of Goo was loads of fun, and I’ll most likely be throwing money at this new game as well.
Little Inferno will be released on March 18th for the PC and as one of the launch games for the Wii U’s new online eShop. Currently, the game is available through Steam at $13.49 with instant access to the game’s beta.
