Nordcurrent Labs and Emergo Entertainment have announced the release date for their highly anticipated new game, Fireside. Set to launch on PC and Nintendo Switch on June 4th, Fireside is a cozy, narrative adventure that will warm the hearts of players and take them on a mesmerizing journey through the great outdoors.

In Fireside, players will immerse themselves in a magical world where the story unfolds through a whimsical hiking adventure. The hand-drawn landscapes are a sight to behold as players travel between campsites and encounter a diverse cast of fellow travelers during nightly campfires. These cozy evenings around the Fireside serve as the main point for nonviolent gameplay, featuring trading, cooking, and dialogue choices that generate “soul energy” – a magical currency for upgrading the player’s home.

These gatherings form the heart of Fireside‘s enchantment, fostering a profound sense of fellowship and connection between characters.

The fireside conversations are a crucial part of the game experience, allowing players to engage in meaningful, heartwarming, or whimsical discussions with their friends around the campfire. Each character has their own wants and needs, and players can collect various items and trade with other travelers using the unique trade and barter system. With over 50 recipes to discover and cook at the campfire, players can satisfy the desires of their fellow travelers and trade with them for valuable items.

Collecting materials and soul energy to enhance the player’s home base is another essential aspect of Fireside. By inviting friends to visit, players can turn their space into a hub for shared experiences and strengthen their bond with fellow travelers. The game’s helping hand philosophy emphasizes compassion and empathy, with non-violent interactions contributing to the well-being of others.

Fireside‘s tranquil ambiance provides a calm and peaceful escape from everyday life. Players can enjoy the soothing sounds of nature, crackling campfire, and a serene soundtrack for a truly immersive experience. The game’s hand-drawn visuals, charming dialogue, and relatable characters are sure to bring joy and happiness to players of all ages.

CEO at Emergo Entertainment, Paul Redetzky, shared his excitement for the game, stating, “With Fireside, we wanted to create a warm-hearted wholesome adventure about the beauty of connecting with others, even when we’re all on our separate journeys. It’s an escape into tranquility, full of friendly faces, serene landscapes, and magical mystery. We can’t wait to hear about players’ experiences when it launches on June 4th.”

Head of Publishing at Nordcurrent Labs, Andrius Mackevičius, added, “Fireside immediately charmed us as soon as we tried it. Its whimsical art, humorous, touching dialogue, and breadth of player choice filled us with joy, so we’re very excited to share this experience with everyone else.”

Fireside will be available for $14.99 / £12.79 / €14.79 on PC and Nintendo Switch, and a brand new release date trailer has just been released, giving fans a sneak peek into the game’s wholesome gameplay and colorful cast of characters. With its emphasis on friendship, non-violent gameplay, and heartwarming stories, Fireside is sure to captivate players and provide a much-needed escape into tranquility.
