Tomorrow Corporation wants you to play their upcoming title Little Inferno before anyone else. A $15 pre-order on the game will land you a chance to take part in the its beta test.
Signing up today at the official webpage allows instant access to the game’s soundtrack and, eventually, the full game. Beta material will come in small batches and will slowly be when Tomorrow Corporation is ready to show it off. Windows users will be granted first access to all materials, with Mac and Linux versions to follow shortly after.
Not only to reward fans and get valuable feedback before the final product is released, the offer must also serve as an offset for pirating and guarantees a large number of sales right off the bat. The developers’ first indie title World of Goo suffered from a huge amount of theft, costing the pair a large sum of money.
In spite of that, Tomorrow Corporation is keeping their products 100% DRM free and playing the honor system with gamers. They admit that $15 might be a lot of money considering that they haven’t even announced the game’s genre, but they’re reputation of being gamer friendly is incredibly strong on the indie scene. Plus, World of Goo is a fantastic game. I’d trust them.
A new teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much about the game, outside of the similar art design. The developers blog claims the game will revolve around burning lots of things.
Burn flaming logs, screaming robots, credit cards, batteries, exploding fish, unstable nuclear devices, and tiny galaxies. An adventure that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace – about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall.
Enticing. Little Inferno is scheduled for release this winter on for the PC, Mac, and Wii U. Sign-ups for the beta are available now. World of Goo fans should make their way over and support the team’s next game.
