Climb ruins and burn your possessions in Bonfire Peaks

I like to climb. Not in real life, mind; I prefer to be inside and sitting down. But in the land of videogames, I've become a bit smitten with rambling hikes thanks to the likes of Death Stranding and A Short Hike. And now here comes Bonfire Peaks, with more things to climb. And burn, for some reason. 

It's another tricky puzzler from developer Corey Martin, who was also responsible for Pipe Push Paradise. The announcement trailer, above, doesn't give much away, but Martin says it's an open-world affair about climbing ruins and setting fire to your belongings. Normal orienteering stuff, then. 

Attachment is the theme, apparently, and you'll be able to "indulge your feelings" as you clamber over the ruins. Mysterious! More practically, you'll be picking stuff up, plonking stuff down and creating paths so you can eventually toss stuff in the titular bonfires. 

You'll be able to get in touch with your feelings later this year.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
