Watch six minutes of Hot Lava, Klei's scorching parkour game

A beloved childhood game has been given a deadly facelift in Hot Lava, Klei's first-person parkour game where the floor is made of literal, non-imaginary lava. The developer, best known for Don't Starve and Mark of the Ninja, calls it "a game of dexterity and ingenuity." We call it "Sort of like Mirror's Edge except wow, is there ever a lot of lava everywhere."

In this six minute gameplay clip, watch as the player leaps, climbs and swings between desks, sporting equipment and lockers as they attempt to navigate a school where both education and fiery death lurk around every corner. And on the floors. And the hallways. There's honestly just a whole lot of lava.

If you like what you see, you can head over to the game's official website to sign up for a beta version of Hot Lava. You'll find more info on the Windows PC game at its Steam listing.
