Ungh,  hero  of  Daedalic Entertainment’s  upcoming  exploration  adventure  FIRE,  is  full of  expressive  energy.  Today  the  developers  publish  a  teaser introducing  the  slightly  clumsy  Neanderthal,  who  lives  in  a quaintly colorful Stone Age world.

FIRE,  the  upcoming  exploration  adventure  from  Daedalic Entertainment,  is  all  about  intuitive  game  design  and  tells  its hilarious  story  without  words.  Players  will  have  to  master  the trickiest task of the Stone Age: Finding new fire.

It  is  up  to  the  players  to  explore  the  primitive  world  of  FIRE and  to  solve  all  puzzles  in  the  most  creative  ways.  Always helpful  are  the  quirky  creatures  of  this  unique  Stone  Age setting:  Why  not  using  a  mammoth  and  its  trunk  to  shoot  a coconut?  No  matter  if  mammoths,  bats  or  dinosaurs  –  FIRE’s colorful  Stone  Age  world  is  inhabited  by  all  kinds  of  useful and entertaining wildlife.

Part of  that  is the  slightly clumsy Neanderthal Ungh  –  he’s the hero of the story.  At least if he finds the fire  –  until  then he’s the  dopey and  unlucky fellow who  has let burn out the bonfire of his tribe during his fire watch stint. Now he has to get a new flame  and  therefore,  he  has  to  explore  the  primitive world  to the last corner: Be it a jungle,  veldt  or the inside of a  volcano – no place is safe from Ungh.

The urge to explore  is set no limits, a click on or a hover over every  object  triggers  a  mimic  reaction  of  Ungh  of  his surroundings  –  and  with a bit of logic players will come closer to  the  puzzle’s  solution.  For  example,  some  locations  can  be visited  at  day  and  night  –  a  click  on  the  sun  or  the  moon  is enough  to  change  the  time  of  the  day,  which  not  only influences the lighting conditions, but also the  behavior of the creatures.  Diurnal  monsters  will  sleep  at  night,  others  will wake up or show themselves only when it’s dark.

FIRE will be released in Q4 2014 for PC and Mac.
