What's Little Inferno? I really don't know, but it's creepy as hell, it's part-developed by Kyle 'World of Goo' Gabler, and there's an unsettling teaser trailer below that involves children cheerily burning their toys while outside the planet freezes. Some sort of nuclear wintry overtones? Undertones? I can never remember where the tones go. Little Inferno is sure to be interesting all the same, take a look.
The blurb reads: "Burn flaming logs, screaming robots, credit cards, batteries, exploding fish, unstable nuclear devices, and tiny galaxies. 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."
Anybody suitably intrigued by the concept can pre-purchase the game now for $15, with first-comers gaining access to the early beta as it rolls out. Despite the game being almost entirely still under wraps, Kyle's previous work on World of Goo and other Kyle's previous work on Henry Hatsworth is just about enough reason to consider supporting it. The Tomorrow Corporation website is rather special too.
