How Little Inferno's burning desire to state a message got lost in the smoke

That was the takeaway from today's Independent Games Summit session at GDC on Tomorrow Games' quirky fireplace simulator Little Inferno. Kyle Gray, one of the game's designers, walked attendees through "the many mistakes" the team made during development. "If you have a message in your game, the chances are people aren't going to get it," he said. "A lot of people thought Little Inferno was about global warming or a critical commentary on freemium games, but it wasn't." In Little Inferno, which was an indie launch title for Wii U and has since been ported to Windows PC, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS, players order goods from an Amazon-like catalog and then toss them in a fireplace. Items and combinations of items give up different effects in the fire. But the story unfolds into a...

Playing with fire: How Tomorrow Corporation's IGF-nominated Little Inferno came to be

In a world gone cold and demanding heat, Tomorrow Corporation's game equips players with the Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace and tasks them with burning some of their favorite things to survive. Polygon interviewed the developers of the 2013 Independent Games Festival-nominated Little Inferno to learn about the company, the game and the unexpected controversy that arose when the National Fire Protection Association condemned it. It's been almost 10 years since Allan Blomquist, Kyle Gabler and Kyle Gray met. At Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center, the trio collaborated on projects like a virtual reality version of Pong and organizing the Experimental Gameplay Project, a "friendly competition" that continues to reward indie developers who create innovative games...

Little Inferno coming to iPad Jan. 31

Little Inferno, a game about children burning their toys for warmth, is coming to iPad on Thursday Jan. 31 after originally releasing on the Wii U and PC, the developers announced on the game's website. The result of a collaboration between the developers of World of Goo and Henry Hatsworth, Little Inferno tasks players with throwing their most prized possessions into a fireplace in order to stay warm on a planet that is freezing over. Developer Kyle Gabler said back in December that the game was inspired by the Yule Log TV program, which is the burning log that can be found on TV during winter time in hotel rooms. "We thought, ‘Man, that's a super boring game that some awful company will make for the Wii or smartphones.' And then, ‘Wait, We could be that awful company! I wonder if...
