Little Inferno for Android

Toasty robots, type in your unlock codes! Swype across your parallaxing desktop! And ask Google’s permission to begin downloading your brand new Little Inferno for Android! It’s rolling out right now, worldwide at a launch discount of $2.99 (normally $4.99).

All reasonably recent devices should be able to handle the game just fine -  requiring Android OS 4.1 (JellyBean) or higher, 1GB RAM or higher, and 1GHz processor speed or higher. Any older device that is not compatible will be immediately incinerated.

Load Your DisketteThanks for your patience, everyone, while we put this together. And thanks to the folks at Apportable for making this happen. Let us know below how it works for you, and we’ll try and be quick about updates!

 

UPDATE AVAILABLE!

An update has just launched, version 1.2, on Google Play and Humble Store. Update on Amazon coming shortly after some more QA.

  • There should be better performance overall.
  • Less battery usage.
  • Rounded icon corners! (A highly requested feature.)

For those who have encountered a crash when using the My Pictures item to load photos, our Android experts think this can be solved with a device setting, “Every device has a setting that closes an activity as soon as the device switches to another activity.  So basically, as soon as the phone pulls up the Photo Gallery, it closes Little Inferno.  If we enable that setting, then play Little Inferno, we see the exact same behavior users are describing.  All you have to do to fix this is turn off that setting.” For those who are seeing this crash, does this help?

Note: The Android folks are still looking into NVidia Shield and TegraNote devices. If you’re still encountering any issues, the quickest way to get tech support is to contact our Android folks at Apportable by emailing here: androidsupport at tomorrowcorporation.com

Little Inferno iPad Release Date Friends

BREAKING WEATHER REPORT! Tomorrow Corporation has just learned that Little Inferno for iPad will be available beginning this Thursday, January 31. It will joyfully melt screens of all iPad versions from iPad2 and up. Up up up.

We’ve also been informed that Fire Safety Spokesperson and cartoon dog named Sparky is calling for Little Inferno to be removed from the eShop. Video games these days can be dangerous! But weirdly, when I think of Little Inferno and the ideas it tries to ignite, setting things on fire is never the first thing to pop into my head. (Warning spoilers!) Also kitties.

UPDATE 1: As with the Wii U and PC versions, the iPad version will also ship in English, Spanish, French, Dutch, and German. Updates for Brazilian Portuguese and Italian will be coming soon for all platforms. Thanks again to our volunteer translators!

UPDATE 2: There will be GameCenter achievements available for those that choose to connect to GameCenter.

UPDATE 3: Just like the other versions of the game, Little Inferno on iPad is still 100% free of in app purchases, ads, spam, etc. You’ll get Just The Game and nothing else!

IGF Nominations for Little Inferno

Little Inferno IGF Nominations

The IGF Finalists were posted last week – and I suppose we’ve been kindof speechless about it until now – Little Inferno was recognized in 5 of the 7 categories, with three nominations including the Grand Prize, and two honorable mentions. After expecting a big fat zero for an admittedly strange and controversial game, we’re kindof astonished. So thanks judges, and congrats to all the other nominees – looks like we’ll see you at GDC in March!

Up Up Up the Wii U eShop (to #2!)

Up Up Up Nintendo Wii U eShop

A Christmas miracle! Against all expectations, Little Inferno, the weird-little-game-that-could, has been steadily moving up the American Wii U charts, up to slot #3 #2 as of today – just ahead of New Super Mario, amazingly. What’s up there anyway? We hope to find out…!

Nintendo Life has just posted some of our initial thoughts on Nintendo’s Wii U eShop, and you can read similar thoughts from other developers here. To summarize, though, indie developers have good things to say about the service, and (my favorite thing) the MiiVerse seems to be well loved. The new year should bring even more indie games, including Runner 2.
