Little Inferno is a puzzle/sandbox game by an independant game developer named Tomorrow Corporation. The entire point of the game is to just burn stuff in a fireplace, get money for it, buy more stuff, burn it, and get more money than what you paid for it. I saw it on the Steam holiday sale and didn't think much of it but after watching a video on it it actually seemed pretty fun so I bought it. It doesn't look like much of a game, mostly because it isn't, but the game actually is fun and funny. The way that certain things burn up, freeze, or even explode can be pretty hilarious. There are also 99 different combinations of things to burn that will unlock for you and the only thing to go by is their name and maybe some hints in the description of the items. I am only half way done the combos so I don't know what happens when you get them all but I also don't want to look it up and spoil any surprise that may happen.
There is also a slight story to the game but I really won't go into much detail because I'm really not sure what would constitute a spoiler for this game.
The art of the game is absolutely amazing. Everything seems so cute and nice as you burn it to ashes. The darkness to everything but the fireplace seems to add a bit of a mystery especially with the letters you get as you progress.
If you are a fan of indie games and love games that have humor in it than I highly recommend this game to you.
