48h version

The building is on fire? Nah, not today.

This game was created in 48h for Ludum Dare 48 entry. The theme was “Deeper and deeper“.

I definitely spent too much time tweaking the fire effect but I’m pretty happy with the final result anyway :) I couldn’t implement everything I wanted to get closer to the actual theme, but the general idea was to make a game where you really feel that things are getting worse and worse, and out of control at some point.

The initial intent was to make the final levels feel like “you can’t stop the fire anymore, you only have to survive and find your way out“, but this didn’t make it to the 48h game.

Extended version

Nuclear Blaze received lots of positive feedback, and as a matter of fact, my 3yrs old kid also loved firefighters stuff, so I decided to turn this jam project into a full game on Steam and ItchIO :)

    real cool game tho it is annoying that you have to restart the entire game when you die it didnt used to be like that

      You should be able to restart the current level by just pressing R.

    Game really gets good when the fire spreading mechanic is introduced. But the trapped doors with fire explosions make the game feel like it's supposed to be a cautious trek but the spaced apart checkpoints and how easy it is to die in some sections make me feel like I'm supposed to be rushing through it. Makes it feel tedious and annoying.

    I think for the games unavailable because of flash, you can still make them accessible using flash emulator sites like

  13. I can't play the Inferno flash game anymore:

    No dramatic end?
    … a bit disappointing given the great gameplay and the somewhat buildup.

      It seems to be a bug with Safari: you might want to try on Firefox or Chrome instead :)
