It's hard to explain Little Inferno, it's more of an experience than a game. It's one of those " you either get it or you don't " type of video game experiences. It's funny, dark, sad, twisted but fun.. I'm not kidding when I say I find it somewhat therapeutic.
It really is fascinating watching the items in game burn. Tomorrow Corporation ( game devs ) put a lot of work into what I call the " burn engine ". The unique reactions of each individual item burning and a nice physics engine make for a very interesting video game toy. The story is sparse but it sucks you in..
Oh and what little music there is is great..
I like to refer people to this review/description - http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/wiiu-eshop/little_inferno
they do a nice job with the describing..
Is Little Inferno worth $14.99? It comes down to who's playing it. It certainly is not for everyone, but if you're like me it will be one of those unforgettable video game experiences.
It seems like it's a lot like Sony's Flower and Journey games. Very artistic and untraditional, probably won't be a game you get a lot of mileage out of but a very memorable experience. Games like this are always interesting, and for some reason I even think they're uniquely relaxing.
