Tomorrow Corporation Announces Little Inferno

By Jim Rossignol on June 29th, 2012 at 5:00 pm.

Matches, like angry twigs.
The gentlemen of Tomorrow Corporation (Kyle “World Of Goo” Gabler, Allan “Worked At EA” Blomquist, Kyle “Henry Hatsworth” Gray) have announced their game will be called Little Inferno. Look, that’s the clever logo up there, where the i is a match, and there are fingers are holding the match. Could that be the player’s own fingers? Possibly, because the cryptic clues that TC have revealed about their new game is that it will be “strange”, that they are aiming for a Winter release, and that it’s about burning stuff. How do we know that last bit? Well, because they close their announcement with a series of questions, the last of which is this: “What would you most like to set on fire?”

Oh, now there’s a question.

    Xbox 360. BURN IT TO THE GROUND!

    Outdated hardware controlling the majority of the games industry is NOT COOL!

    Also, David Cameron… and his Xbox :P

    I have been wondering what the 2D Boys were doing all this time quite often. Does this mean that they have broken up? Either way, I’m very curious about this game…

    If you ever watched FLCL (pronounced Foolie Coolie) you may remember that one of the female characters was obsessed with a TOTALLY NOT A GBA game that was set with the premise of you being a ‘freedom fighter’ in a demonic city that continually grew, swallowing up the earth. Your (unwinnable because the game never ended) task was to return the city to nature by burning down buildings, sabotaging the fire men, and evading the police until you inevitably got captured.

    Man, I wish that was a real game.

    MY PYROMANIA HAS HIGH HOPES FOR THIS.

      You have problems.
      Can we be friends?

    • ZamFear says:

      Firestarter was unwinnable because actually destroying the whole city was a lose condition. “Remember, if you burn everything down, there will be no place for you to live.”

    What i want to burn, huh? I think what i would like to burn is a huge banner with Joseph Stalin on it. Publically. Smack in the middle of the Red Square. And with no repercussions.

    • CaspianRoach says:

      I think no one would give a fuck about it being a banner of Stalin, but you could get an administrative fine for burning down stuff in public places.

      • Kollega says:

        No, i’m preeeeeetty sure that certain individuals would get all antsy-in-their-pantsy if i did that.

        But then again, i actually live in Kazakhstan, not in Russia, so maybe i underestimate how apathetic people there are. Maybe they just seem lively and political because here everything is even more stale :P

    Humanity as a whole I guess. But carned meat doesn’t burn well I’m sure.

    • ZamFear says:

      Everything burns. You just need to make the fire hot enough.

      • RakeShark says:

        And even if it doesn’t burn, it’ll usually turn into something super pulpy white goddamned hot you can put into a jar and then put on something else, causing that thing to burn.

  10. MistyMike says:

    Will this be based on S. King’s ‘Firestarter’? That would seem appropriate.

  11. MichaelPalin says:

    I guess 2D Boy run out of platforms to port World of Goo to.

    I’d burn teasers, definitely teasers.

    Henry Hatsworth is aaaammmmaaazzzing! Tea Time!

  15. TaroYamada says:

    The game has been called Little Inferno for nearly two years http://tomorrowcorporation.com/posts/shocking-updates, this is the first thing we’ve seen out of them though. Even if it is just a logo.

  16. ColOfNature says:

    The world.

  17. Delicious Narwhal says:

    Scrolling past this on the front page, I thought for a fraction of a second that somebody was remaking “Little Nemo: Dream Master”. I would enjoy setting that game on fire.

  18. Jasoco says:

    Color me impressed. I loved World of Goo so much I bought it on three different platforms. Looking forward to seeing what it is.
