A downloadable game for Windows

Made over the course of 48 hours as a part of LUDUM DARE 46.

A smash-like, 'tower-defence-like' poem? You must keep the fire alive as you try to survive a night in the woods.
As you fight of each wave of angry, fire-destroying bears, you are treated to an original poem about overcoming adversity as you protect the fire inside you that pushes you onward. 

The protagonist of this game sports limbs of many colours, a grappling hook and a very powerful umbrella to defeat the bears with. The bears have water-guns, water barrels and rain-clouds to try and douse your burning fire!

As always, feedback is much ap

Hello, I used your art material to make a similar game as my contact project! Just practice my own programming skills!


Nice one! I played the game and enjoyed it! Hope you learnt a lot, and hope my assets helped!

Thank you! 
Your assets are great!



Hey, Dude, you can link your LD page to your itch page by using the tags. This way people finding your game here can visit your LD page and rate your game.

Ah thanks for the tip! I must've missed that section in the page settings when I set this up - all fixed now! :)


This is so fun! I love the art design and music, and yeeting enemies into the abyss is super satisfying! It really fits the "keep it alive" theme well! Good job!

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
