It’s safe to say that the survival genre has gotten a bit saturated over the years, so it’s pretty special when a game that falls in that category happens to stand out. Xigma Games’ The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands could very well be one of those games. Pairing idle game elements (think A Dark Room) with traditional survival mechanics and some fantasy RPG flare, The Bonfire looks to be a streamlined practice in settlement building that’s made just for mobile. Gather wood, build an encampment for yourself, and construct defenses against the terrible monsters that prowl the snowy nights.
The game rewards players who are brave enough to get out and explore this wild, icy world, too. You’ll find dungeons full of weapons and treasure, temple ruins, and other mysteries ripe for discovery.
The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands is set to arrive in February. You’ll find it on iOS for $3.99.
