During the PC Gaming Show, Hello Games confirmed that The Last Campfire, the studio’s new family-friendly platformer, will be coming out summer 2020. In contrast to the expansive space sim No Man’s Sky, The Last Campfire is a solitary experience, involving solving puzzles on a spiritual quest.
A trailer accompanied the announcement, giving us a little more footage of the beautiful world our “lost ember” will be exploring. It’s similar to thatgamecompany’s Journey, featuring a cute, nameless protagonist making their way through a landscape full of beauty, peril, and the occasional rather large pig.
The Last Campfire was announced back in December 2018, and updates have been rare since then. The project involves the creative minds behind LostWinds, too – a 2008 platformer that was released for the Wii by Frontier Developments. The two games have a lot in common at first glance, from the cartoony fantasy levels, and simple approach to platforming and puzzling. LostWinds was ported to PC in 2016 and is available on Steam, if you want to play a spiritual prequel of sorts.
