Talkin’ About Little Inferno

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Title Screen

I gave a talk about the things we learned while making Little Inferno at GDC this year,but completely forgot to post it here. There were some difficulties with sound during the presentation, so I ended up singing half of the lyrics of the jingle on stage. With no back up audio. In front of 600 or so people.

Despite the technical difficulties, the talk went pretty well! If you’re interested in learning about the story behind Little Inferno, it’s worth a gander. Just please ignore my bad singing.

Something Else is Burning

In other news, we’ve been quietly prototyping a few different game ideas for a little while now. Nothing new to report just yet, but it has been nice to go back to our roots. Strange to think we wrote that paper almost 9 years ago!

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!



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
