Challenge yourself to play both characters, or play local co-op with a friend to be stronger together.

Is there any plan to add online co-op? I'd love to play this with my sister but we're in different countries.

That would be awesome but we have no idea how to implement online co-op!


I recommend to go a tell people to use parsec to play online co-op, it's free and very reliable

Great game, love the idea. but i was trying to find the pause button, and click p, which built a huge white block over my campfire

Oh haha, that is definitely not supposed to be there. Thanks for the heads up!

It is hard to play alone. I need to find some friends. Great game.

Definitely easier with friends :) thanks for playing!


Super cute game. The layout and design is great. The names are adorable fires and salad lol. Very pleasing aesthetic. Fun little game :)



beautiful graphics and great concept.

loved the music too.

nice job!

Thanks! The main gameplay music was actually a happy accident where we played a piano track backwards





Beautiful design, well executed. Fries/Salad.. lol. Nicely done!


Thanks! Yup I think we were quite hungry when we can up with the names.
