Little Inferno is an indie videogame developed by Tomorrow Corporation (creators of World of Goo) and published by Experimental Gameplay Group. Released for PC, console and mobile platforms, the premise of this game is quite simple; you just have to burn all types of items. It is the perfect cure for pyromaniacs since you can burn anything, from stuffed toys, little cute dolls to nauseating cockroaches and spiders without any consequences. After all, you are playing a game.
It is the perfect cure for pyromaniacs
Everything has a steampunk aesthetic. Every item seems to be made of gears, steam, metal and rust. Even the toys are a little creepy as they have half a head made out of metal and the other half made of fur. In addition, every item reacts in a different way when they are burned and it is one of the most entertaining features of Little Inferno. Do not think that they stay still while they are being burned. Some of them explode, such as the corn, others try to flee, such as the ones with wheels, and others simply scream and yell, such as the bus full of kids.
Even though you will become a cruel pyromaniac when playing, the music and the graphics of this adventure are relaxing. You will be able to watch the flames (behaving in a very realistic way) for hours while you burn things. The music will sound in the background the whole time, and it sounds just like the lobby of a nice hotel or the waiting rooms of an hospital.
Burn in flames! Burn!
Once you download it, you are at home, when you receive a letter from your neighbor that insists you to burn things in your fireplace. At first, you will get a free item to burn, and also you can burn the letter. Every time you burn something in your fireplace, you will collect coins. Those coins serve to buy more items to burn. You will have default catalog to purchase items, and once you collect more coins, you can buy more catalogs with more objects. Indeed, the currency is just so you have something to do since when you burn an item, it provides you with more coins than what the item cost, so you will always receive benefits. In addition, if you run out of coins, you can burn the little spiders that randomly appear, and they will provide you with more coins.
When you buy an item, it takes some seconds or minutes to arrive, since you have order it by mail. You can collect stamps to make the items arrive sooner. Stamps are collected by making combos. You will have a list of combos that will increase as you buy more catalogs. The first combos you have belong to the items from the first catalog. When you buy the second one, the combos list becomes longer, and you can make combos with the items from the first and second catalogs, and so on until you buy the last catalog.
Combinations (combos) are not easy to figure out. They are like riddles you have to solve to know which items to choose. For example, the name of the combo can be "Poet Inspiration", and you must guess what items serve for the combo, for instance (and it is just an example), Absinth and Window. Some of them are easier than others, but I can assure you that you will have to think hard about the most difficult ones in Little Inferno.

When I downloaded Little Inferno and started playing, I think that I would uninstall the game in the next five minutes. However, surprisingly, it caught me. In fact, it is unexpectedly addictive. You have to burn thing to create combos. You don't really are rewarded with nothing but coins and stamps, and you will have a lot of them, believe me. Nevertheless, you will be playing for hours to solve all the challenging puzzles the game offers you. Some combos are simple to solve, but you will have to struggle a lot to solve others.
Another impressive thing about Little Inferno are the graphics. As it is mentioned in the review, everything has an incredibly beautiful Steampunk aesthetic. The atmosphere it creates is calm, and the music (quiet and slow-paced) supports this atmosphere. The sound of the flames crackling is quite realistic, and also the behavior of the fire itself is true-to-life. You will never run out or coins, you can endlessly play if it is your wish.
- Coins will never run out
- Lots of items to burn
- It is a challenge to solve the puzzles
- Steampunk graphics are quite amazing
- There is not variety in the gameplay
- The game is not free
