Description

Set your belongings on fire on a beautiful voxel art puzzle island.

Move onwards, move upwards, and leave nothing behind: in Bonfire Peaks, players must climb to the top of a mysterious island ruin, burning everything they own along the way. Featuring hours of masterfully designed puzzle content, a breathtakingly lovely voxel overworld, and not a single second of filler content.

Bonfire Peaks is the inaugural publishing project by Draknek & Friends, the publisher and developer of A Monster’s Expedition and Cosmic Express. Enjoy hours of deep puzzles as you explore the interactive hub world and discover surprising new mechanics.

History

Draknek & Friends are the puzzling powerhouse behind A Monster’s Expedition, A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, Cosmic Express and Sokobond. Bonfire Peaks is their first foray into publishing and co-producing.
