On Google Play, the game earned 4.1 stars, while on Steam it received mixed reviews. However, the game is only free until “Day 7” on Android, which is a period too short to see all the splendor of the game.
The Story Bonfire Forsaken Lands :
The plot and gameplay of this game are not separated at all. The player is represented by a single entity in a game, a human, who lights a bonfire in the middle of nowhere. As the weather continues to work against you, fire attracts “lost souls” as the game’s cryptic introductory message calls them, and it goes like this
“When the great star falls the sea will rise
The sleeping God will awaken
Only the ancient titan can defeat him
And send him back to the depths from which he came
Find a land and light the Bonfire
For it will beckon the lost souls
Seek the wisdom of the ancients
And you shall gain the strength of the Titans”
Bonfire Forsaken Lands Gameplay :
Suffice it to say, this game really creates a strangely addictive experience. The Bonfire combines role playing gameplay with strategy and survival elements to explore a fantasy world and unlock its secrets. As you light your fire and start building your settlement, you will get drifting from everyone who will join you. Then configure them with different roles and tasks, such as collecting firewood or guarding the guard. By the way, protecting your settlement is very important since wolves and other beasts will attack at night, when their workers sleep.
The player-controlled character is the only one who never sleeps, oddly enough. However, if the cryptic prophecy is true, it aspires to become the Titan. As your settlement grows, you evolve your methods, build iron weapons, employ more and more people and grow stronger. In this way, this game becomes something of a Civ emulation, in real-time with an odd gameplay. Talking about further stages of the game would spoil your experience, but let’s just say it is well worth the time.
Bonfire Forsaken Lands Graphics & appearance :
The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands uses a basic 2D environment, with minimalist models and animations. The game resembles ancient Japanese minimalist art, or a moving comic.
The character models and everything you see looks like a cardboard cutout that moves, but you will quickly appreciate this simplistic design when your city expands and the game gains momentum. There is an “Pause” button also added for those later stages of the game, when you have too many tasks at hand to support in a single moment.
The Bonfire Forsaken Lands will surprise you. His game is addictive since its action revolves in a minimalist environment, but with maximum performance. In fact, for a game that seems so simple, you will be surprised how immersive and rewarding the experience can be. And, when combined with the fact that there is also an underlying motive of a prophecy that you follow and a story that takes place behind the scenes, everything is a time well spent on a video game. We recommend that you try at least the first 7 days for free on Android.
Download and play up to Day 7 (in-game) for free. In order to complete the game, a full version is required that can be unlocked with a purchase via In-App Purchase
