Ludum Dare 46: Firekeeper

“Firekeeper” by Thomas Olsson & Justin Ma.

“Keep the flames alive and hold the shadows at bay.”

In “Firekeeper”, the shadow creatures feel protected by the nightly gloom. So it is no promise that they want to see the small bonfire dead for good. However, these flames are something special, even supernatural – and you are their guardian. With the help of your mighty fists you can crush the black monsters of the darkness into dust, but that is not your only task, as the fire wants to grow.

Collect logs and crystals to offer them as a gift to your gleaming fosterling. As it becomes stronger, your powers will reach their full potential as well. Soon you can summon fireballs, which will not only burn the shadows, but also the trees around you. The stunning view on an evolving gout of flame makes “Firekeeper” to one of the most ambient rampage games that I ever played in my life. For sure it is a flickering light in the overwhelming sea of Ludum Dare 46 submissions. >>PLAY
