Wildfire, a beautiful pixel stealth game with magic and fire propagation is coming May 26th

From Press Release:

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – Wildfire, a Stealth Game Equipping Players with Elemental Magic, Announces May 26 Launch Date.

Humble Publishing is very excited to reveal the launch date for the stealth game, Wildfire, appropriately developed by the amazing studio, Sneaky Bastards. This chaotic, element-wielding game will be available on PC this May 26!

Wildfire, developed in Australia by Dan Hindes, has already garnered praise from the Australian Game Developers; sweeping the Excellence in Art and Innovation awards, as well as being listed as a Finalist at The PAVS: NZ Game Awards 2019. In this acclaimed game, players will be able to master the elements in a world where everything burns. They’ll use elemental powers to start fires, freeze water, and move earth to outsmart superstitious enemies in this mischievous 2D stealth game.

Story

In a world where magic has all but died out, you’ve been branded a witch by villainous forces who fear your elemental power. Outsmart the superstitious armies of the Arch Duchess as they hunt you through lush forests, deep caverns, and over frozen mountaintops. Find and free your fellow villagers from captivity, then lead them to safety to reclaim your home.

Key Features

  • Manipulate Your Environment. Use fireballs to set the world ablaze, freeze water to cross impassable lakes or trap your enemies in ice, and move earth itself to grow grass to hide in or vines to climb.
  • Master the Elements. You’ll learn new abilities as your connection to the elements grow, but beware; fire will spread and consume everything in its path – including you!
  • Outsmart Your Enemies. Use the environment to your advantage as you evade and engage the Arch Duchess’ forces, intelligent enemies that work together to hunt you down.
  • Burn the World…With a Friend. Play solo or have a friend join you, wielding your elemental powers in tandem, creating new ways through Wildfire’s dense, systemic environment.
