This week, Laura joins us again to discuss Little Inferno, a game so unique that it defies description. Here, we’ll give it a go: Little Inferno is a game in which you order items from catalogs, burn them in a beautiful interactive fireplace, and somehow this earns you more money to buy more things to burn.

Sound intriguing? We didn’t think so! Yet somehow, developers Tomorrow Corporation (of World of Goo fame) turn this strange, casual game concept into a two-to-four hour experience that we all found deeply emotionally and intellectually satisfying. If you’re into games as art and games as culture, you’ll want to check this one out. A great and utterly unique game, and a great episode of The Short Game.
