Building Little Inferno

Little Inferno info illuminating soon

For what seems like a very long time, we (the two Kyles and Allan) have been locked away working on a strange new game. We’re starting to see flickers of life, and they are getting brighter. So we thought this might be a good time to start sharing.

We just overhauled and updated this site to become our work-in-progress dev ‘log from here on out, to track the progress of our new game Little Inferno, leading up to a release by this winter on multiple platforms.

Little Inferno Diskette

We’ve been quiet about this game so far to avoid being another lost adorable indie game that never materializes – but now we’re almost done! And we’ll post some first bits of real info on Little Inferno in a few days. So keep an eye on this space if you’re curious to track/participate in the development of Little Inferno, with RSS or something. Does anyone use RSS anymore? Ham radio? Or is it social face places now? Can my Netscape Navigator do that?

Important survey question: What would you most like to set on fire?

    I would like to set on fire a mountain made of rolls of toilet paper.

  2. John says:

    Anything Kyle G. touches is gold. He touched me once… ok, so we hugged, but I felt myself Midas-ized then and there. To answer the question, nothing. The fire still burns.

  3. HOLY CRAP HECK YEAH!

    You totally made my day. Or week. Or life. Or whatever. TAKE MY MONEY ALREADY. Oh, wait, this winter, you say? That’s like… tomorrow!

    Awesome, dudes. I totally understand the development non-wanting-to-be-in-limbo-stuff. But “Almost done”!!! OHMAN I think I can die peacefully now.

  4. Kyle, I’m a huge fan since WoG and I was itching to know what you guys were up to! I’ve been looking into your blog every once in a while (even inspired our blog’s design on some degree – http://www.pixelcows.com). Keep the news coming! Congratulations to you, and to Kyle Gray and Allan as well, best of luck guys!

    I’m just sad you removed the Gablerish little guys and the building base, it rocked so much… :)

    Anyway, we’re aspiring indie game designers from Brazil, hope I have the chance to know you guys in the next IGF or something! Congrats once again

  5. Oh, and to answer the question: Fuse Goo Balls. Or Bit Goo Balls; they explode nicely. Basically anything with a burntime, detonateforce, detonateradius, and explosionparticles set. Or maybe a building full of fireworks. That’d be pretty sweet too.

    Kylessss:
    Its winter in Argentina Babies.
    Gimme game.

  7. Maikel says:

    Finally! I’ve been regularly watching this site, only to be disappointed about the lack of updates every time. I can’t wait for more information, and for the release of the game. This winter… That seems so soon!

  8. Nick says:

    I like to set fire on stuff that goes “Boom”.

  9. Pekuja says:

    I would like to set fire to a slinky going down an escalator. That has to look cool.

  12. Betty Martin says:

    I would like to set on the fire the time between now and release day.

  13. Drew says:

    Nice job fellas!

    I quite enjoy lighting farts on fire. But that’s neither hear nor there.

    Congrats on reaching to the finish-line guys! I can’t wait to get my greazzyy mits on your game.

    Enjoy your world tour Kyle Gr. I hope to tag-a-long with you guys at some point. If the mood strikes, come up to Vancouver.

    All my best!
    -Drew

  14. Joshua says:

    I’d like to burn some bridges. But if that sounds too misanthropic, I’d settle for setting fire to the dance floor.

  16. Sempiternity says:

    All I have to say is, “We didn’t start the fire.”

    But what to burn? How ’bout toilet paper soaked in kerosene, especially if it’s in a carved pumpkin.

  17. cogzwell says:

    I once saw a piece of artwork a student did at my sister’s college made completely out of matches, and all I could think was…. “Man…. that would be so cool to set on fire.”

  19. Auster says:

    I just want to start a flame in your heart.

  20. One can always set fire to the rain, which is very trendy these days… And yeah, I used to set fire to 1 meter pieces of toilet paper and let it fly out of the window from the 15th floor of my granma’s apartment. It was so cool, some kind of beautiful and sad sacrifice kite, a fiery dragon who’s as brilliant as brief… Oh, the poetics of toilet paper and fire!

  21. Tumbleworld says:

    I would love to set the collected politicians of the world on fire. Really. LOVE to. :)

  22. Zergman says:

    The world is in danger!!! The sun has gone out and we must ignite it before the world freezes and everyone dies!

    Also the toilet paper, politicians, mountains of fireworks and some days my work desk would be nice.

  23. Zergman says:

    Oh just a few more, a Giant Marshmellow so I can make a giant S’more, some times I wish the golf ball I’m using would burst into flames. Stupid ball won’t go in the hole!! OH and light those dumb small Indie teams on fire. WTH they thinking trying to compete with the HUGEEE TomorrowCorporation Indie conglomerate.

    The following is a story :)
    Our intrepid adventurer is going through the jungle. He comes across some ancient ruins. He discovers a secret passage and enters the temple. Inside he burns spider webs (stupid spiders no one likes you), obstacles, torches and other goodies as he searches. Eventually he finds “The Torch of Never Ending Flames”!!! What could go wrong with never ending flames M I Right?!? He lights the torch. The torch comes alive and goes out of control lighting things all around the world on fire. Eventually the dumb torch lights the icecaps on fire and the world is submerged in water. The few remaining survivors travel the world in ships searching for dry land and petrol…hmm that last part seem familiar, anyway…hope you liked my story..love WOG can’t wait for awesome games from the crew.

    I’d like to set a fire on fire. Can you make this dream of mine a reality?

  25. Tomorrow Corporation PR says:

    YAY ^^
    I luv u so much you´re my indie game idols :)
    I luv u Kyles and Allan ^^
    By the way, can you post just 1 more picture of you baby, Allan? He´s sooooo cute ^^ :D

  26. TheCube says:

    I would set on fire some sort of rubric’s contraption, such as a string covered in kerosene wrapped around a candle, which then lights and floats its own hot air balloon. The balloon turns a wheel which spins a tube so the ball inside drops onto a lighter. The lighter sets off a firework which shoots into the air.

    So uh, is this what the game looks like?

  27. JamesOfGoo says:

    WOO!

    I can’t wait for this game to come out! I’m so excited! I don’t even have any idea what it looks like! All these exclamation points!

    Oh, and what would I like to see on fire? Giant monsters (On fire or made out of it?). Maybe pumpkins and such, iunno, something odd on fire! Maybe a robot giraffe riding through a storm cloud on a jet ski!

  28. ruddy says:

    So excited to see this come to life at last.

    I most want to set my shadow on fire.

  30. lucas says:

    I would love to set on fire all of my economics books from high school and make a barbecue with them. In fact, i think i am going to do that right away :D !!!

  31. Victor says:

    Cars

  32. Fel says:

    I want to burn the jack o lantern by making the bottom of the candle explosive!!! So you never know exactly when it’ll blow!

  33. Fel says:

    AND ALSO BURN DOWN A SPACE STATION

    ZERO GRAVITY INFERNO!!!!! orbs of fire everywhere! I’m guessing that’s not how it really works…

    Set fire to the moon, fool everybody into thinking it’s the sun

  34. alireza says:

    I would like to set on fire a goo ball

  35. DEFE says:

    Hooray! Ah, I’m so excited for more news. Wonderful to hear that things are coming along well for all of you. I hope everything has been going swimmingly with Liam. As for what I would set on fire, perhaps a boat or a toy plane? That could be fun, getting some mobility in.

  36. Alex says:

    I want to burn photos in the microwave

  37. Max says:

    Set giant wooden Eiffel Tower on fire would be great

  38. Vitalik says:

    I’d like to burn all around us.

  39. puggsoy says:

    YESH. FINALLY. AWESHUM.

    What would I like to set on fire? The hair of the beauty-powered generator in WoG. That’d look pretty cool.

  40. Jens says:

    Somehow I always end up with a flame-thrower in hand if a game has one and everything around me ablaze. Obviously I was not alone. I silently cheer you on my fellow pyromaniacs.

    I’d like to see fire stop an alien invasion of Earth. If the world’s burning, there’s less reason to invade … although, it would probably be better if the aliens caught flame as well.

  41. It would be neat if it’s a physics game where you can burn ropes to fuel a oven.

  42. Tomorrow Corporation PR says:

    Oh I forgot to answer the question!
    I´d like to set Justin Bieber on fire and then, when he dies, I´d kill myself, I´d go to hell, I´d kill him again in hell, and repeat this 1000000000000000000000 times, so I could see him die OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! X) BWAHAAHAHAAH!!
    I luv U guys, you are my game idols :) :D
    I cant wait to Little Inferno´s release :)

  43. TiTi says:

  55. Broccoli says:

    I have a bunch of stocks from a big game company that are practically ashes already, but I’d love to light those f*ckers up!

  56. Adam Starks says:

    I once accidentally got super excited at GDC 2009 and jumped out and startled Kyle Gabler with my largish Nordic frame. I guess he thought that I was security coming to attack him or something? If he remembers that, I apologize!

    If I could set something on fire, it would have to be a nice, heaping plate of binary. The 1’s and 0’s caramelize real nicely. Just remember put them out before they burn.

  57. I would like to set the empire state building with the Eiffel tower and the chiseler building stacked on top of each other so it would make a great fire >)

  67. momo1526 says:

    Oh boy, can’t wait, big fan of WoG! What I burn most are fuse gooballs, bombs and tnt. Actually I use fire and deodorant to make a flame thrower, very fun to melt plastic… I must be a pyromaniac…
