Happy Burnsday: Little Inferno Release Date

If I were Tomorrow Corporation, I would have released Little Inferno on Robert Burns Day, but that's in January and the World of Goo creators' new game is a launch title for the Wii U so it must come out earlier. That's a good thing though because the PC release will be at the same time: November 18th. As the teaser trailer showed, it's a game about burning things. All the things. Maybe it'll be a little like Trash Panic or maybe it'll be nothing like Trash Panic. It'll almost certainly involve burning things. Little things. Also expect some sort of playing around with physics, fire physics, and, hopefully, a delightful soundtrack.

Pre-orders are available and will provide "access to the full game a week or so before the official release" for Windows users, with the Mac and Linux coming later. Beta testers may also be selected from the list or preorderers as needed. Remind me never to write 'preorderers' ever again. I just tried saying it as well and for some reason it felt natural to assume some sort of feeble attempt at an Irish accent. This is my life.

It wouldn't surprise me if Little Inferno ended up having a story that made me go 'oooohhh', 'ahhhhhh' and *sniff*, just like World of Goo did. This line suggests sorrow: "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."
