TORONTO – June 5, 2021 – Fire Tonight, a narrative puzzle experience from developer Reptoid Games and publisher Way Down Deep following a couple’s journey to find one another in a burning city, engulfs Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, and Mac on Thursday, Aug.12, 2021.
Young hearts are set alight in Maya and Devin, a young couple who found love in the big city. Their lives together make this place feel more like a home as they reflect on memories of their relationship. Love burns hot, but there’s a raging fire sweeping across town burning even hotter. Help Maya escape the flames, cross town, and find her way back to Devin in this trying time.
Guide Maya through alleys and over rooftops while evading the inferno and police roadblocks. Solve light environmental puzzles to clear obstacles from Maya’s path and stay out of the cops’ line of sight to remain safe and under the radar until she can reach Devin’s warm embrace.
The events of Fire Tonight take place in 1990, a time before cell phones that leaves Devin stuck in his apartment only able to worry for Maya’s wellbeing. Help him pass the time and calm his nerves by reflecting on the couple’s history. Relax for a moment, listening to Maya’s mixtapes and perusing mementos from their relationship to discover more about their time together.
Fire Tonight is inspired by Information Society’s song of the same name. The game features an original electronic soundtrack from composer Lex Metcalfe to jam out to while helping the young couple find a way to reunite in a blazing neon-tinted city steeped in ‘90s aesthetics.
“It’s easy to take for granted how much our loved ones mean to us,” said Simon Paquette, co-founder, Reptoid Games. “Fire Tonight gives players the chance to reflect on how love can stand against long odds in trying times. We look forward to sharing the game with everyone this August.”
Fire Tonight launches for Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, and Mac via Steam for $5.99 on Aug. 12. An introductory 20% launch discount will be available on both platforms during launch week.
