A few weeks ago the newly formed Tomorrow Corporation announced their first title, Little Inferno. Not much was known at the time, but they’ve released a teaser as well as details for an early access beta.
The teaser is a tad more morbid than you might expect, but considering the pedigree behind Little Inferno, it makes sense. The latest blog post over on Tomorrow Corporation’s site gives a few more details about Little Inferno, but the core mechanics are still vague. What we do know is it will have the “Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace,” and you’ll “burn flaming logs, screaming robots, credit cards, batteries, exploding fish, unstable nuclear devices, and tiny galaxies,” in “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.” It’s also great so see it will be both DRM and IAP free.
The beta is a bit of an experiment for the folks at Tomorrow Corporation, so they do have a few caveats. To get into the beta, you will have to pre-order the game for $15. This will get you instant access to an early version of the soundtrack, but you’ll have to wait for beta access. Invites will roll out in small batches, and will mostly be decided on a first-come, first-serve basis. Access to the beta is not guaranteed, but considering the launch window is this winter, you won’t have long to wait no matter what happens.
