Steam title card.

Little Inferno is a sandbox puzzle game created by Tomorrow Corporation and first released on Windows in 2012, then ported to several other platforms. The game takes a past time that many people enjoy, setting fire to things you're not supposed to burn because you're bored, and makes a game out of it.

I got this game as part of a Humble Indie Bundle, and very much enjoyed it. By itself, it was worth the cost of the bundle.

Status

I own this game and have beaten it, though just shy of 100% completion.
