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

  1. Warming and funny
    by niezapomiinajka, Poland - Nov 10th 2013

    It's different. Hilarious and satirical. I've never played such a game but I don't regret it! I love the way you have to think to combine items to make combos. It was really challenging sometimes :) I would put this game into the category of games that I will always remember and recall with pleasure :)

  2. Pros and cons
    by NorthernSpruce, Canada - May 8th 2013

    Premise:
    You buy offbeat stuff from a catalogue and burn it in a fireplace. If you burn certain things together (you have to figure out the exact combinations) it provides a bonus. That's it. There is a story underlying it all but it doesn't really affect gameplay. Everything ends with a twist of sorts.

    Pros:
    - Exquisitely drawn, super creatively executed
    - An endearing secondary character
    - Entertaining special effects

    Cons:
    - Quite a few objects scream cartoonishly when you burn them
    - The premise is not convincing
    - Good for about 2.5 hours of play
    - The only challenge is figuring out the combinations

    Obviously some people loved it, and I like certain things about it, but I wouldn't play it again and I wouldn't recommend it.
