Aster has been bringing Cordie on wilderness canoe camping trips all summer. Magic is afoot in the woods during their nightly campfire, but talk keeps returning to real life looming on the horizon.

Features: Campfire ambience, fear of unknown, forest spirits, loons. 

Language: EnglishKINDLING SPIRITS is my first video game. It's a simple visual novel with several dialogue choices, one ending, and about 10-15 minutes of gameplay. 

The game is free to play! If you choose to pay $2 or more, you can support me as a creator and get a digital art book PDF containing the art from the game, concepts and production notes. 

I love making games, and I'm excited to develop the much larger sequel to KINDLING SPIRITS - coming soon-ish.

The crackling of the fire is so soothing. Such a comforting little game.

This was a pretty cozy Visual Novel! Just watching two characters sit at a campfire and talk about life was pretty interesting. The dynamic background and different frames for the characters helped with that! By the end of it I was more interested in the “lore” of the world you created. “Why can Aster communicate with spirits? Is that a normal ability people have?” Maybe a future project can expand on these characters/places/creatures.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks so much for the kind words!

I'm very glad you're interested in this world, because as mentioned in the game description this is just a small prequel to a larger game that I'm now beginning development on. :) I wanted to start small for my first game, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Stay tuned for updates on the next game!
