We’ve just been to the The Game Awards, and we have some news.
The last few years have been a crazy time, launching No Man’s Sky felt like an impossible task that we somehow managed to pull off. Having a positive and active community two years later also seemed like an impossible task, and again somehow with a lot of hard work it we’ve managed that too. This was one of the reasons that we were at the TGAs, because No Man’s Sky was nominated for Best Ongoing Game, something we are very proud of.
There is another reason we went to the TGAs, and that was to announce a new game we’ve been working on secretly for a few years.
The Last Campfire is an adventure, a story of a lost Ember trapped in a puzzling place, searching for meaning and a way home. Together you will discover a beautiful wilderness filled with lost folks, strange creatures and mysterious ruins.
From Joe Danger to No Man’s Sky and now The Last Campfire, Hello Games has always made games that are vibrant, beautiful, interesting and different.
We brought on board the creatives behind LostWinds, Steven and Chris, and The Last Campfire is their baby. This is a big moment for them, and we’re excited to be able to share in it.
We call it a Hello Games Short. Like Pixar shorts it’s a way to foster creativity and new voices in the studio. We started by making Joe Danger, before No Man’s Sky, and we want to pay forward our success to give others the opportunity to do the same.
I’m so proud that just two of our team has been able to make something so artistically interesting, and so fun and unique to play. It reminds me of why I love working at Hello Games.
We look forward to sharing more with you in the future.
We aren’t announcing platforms yet, but we’d love you to wishlist on Steam here…
