The Last Campfire is a lovely puzzle adventure that brings an inspiring story about hope. This story is lived by Ember, who in a very kind and compassionate way tries to help other characters in the game, called forlorns, to have again hope and a purpose to keep moving on.
In addition to the heartwarming story, the game also features very cleverly designed and creative puzzles that will always bring a pleasant satisfaction for solving them.
The art is wonderfully inviting, and the soundtrack is a treat to the ears.
It has no missable achievements, and the collectibles, while not necessary for completion, add a lot to the game's narrative.
I finished the game in about 8 hours and I'm glad I explored every bit of it, because it was definitely worth it. It holds a special place in my heart now, and I invite you to also experience it.

Review from Steam

Downloaded on release. Beautiful graphics, nice narrative voice; I think I am going to like this one.
No native ultrawide support but a simple registry fix overcomes that problem:
- Registry path: Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-503498102-3229530495-3842270313-1001\SOFTWARE\Hello Games\The Last Campfire
- Change 'Screenmanager Resolution Height_h2627697771' and 'Screenmanager Resolution Width_h182942802' to your (decimal) screen values.

A beautiful tale about a creature finding what it means to be alive and how to die without regret. 10/10 masterpiece

Came to give Sean Murray more money, stayed for a beautifully well-done puzzle adventure game

Review from Steam

OK puzzles, solid graphics, great sound... you'd think there isn't much here, but what keeps you, is masterful writing and storytelling. Its like being a child again and having a parent telling you a fairtytale before bed - and I believe this is the cord that strikes many, that give it thumbs up.
I am generally not much for these kinds of games, I got it only because it was Overwhelmingly Positive... I wanted to stop very close after the first completed section, because even if I liked it - I just didn't like it enough to warrant spending time on it.
Thing is, after you "save" all your "sad" brethren and infuse them back with life, and everyone is happy and hopeful again, and walk through the door to the next section - you run into one that "is different, as it doesn't want to be helped. Not all problems can be solved."
This tiniest bit of sad real life fact simply poked in for no good reason, but just to tell a story - glued me on, and now I want to hear the rest...
So I keep on playing, not really because the game as a game entertains me - but because I keep pushing on to hear what the calming narrator's voice has to say, and hear this great fairytale unfold to its end.

Review from Steam

The Last Campfire is a visually gorgeous game about the quest for the meaning of life and what defines home. It explores the need for hope in our lives and has a touch of melancholy when it dives into our human frailties. It is very cute and colorful, but there is a dark side to it that may frighten children under the age of 8.
The whole game has a relaxing feel to it. There is no pressure other than what you put on yourself. There is no violence, no fighting. Just a lot of brain teasers and some delightful characters along the way. Be prepared to be touched now and then by the dialogue as you can relate to how the forlorn feel.
The story is about Ember who gets lost and has to travel through forest, marsh and caves to find his way back home. On his quest, he meets fantastical creatures and spirit guides who are at each campfire. It is from the spirit guides that he discovers about the forlorn…embers who had given up or who had lost their spark. Ember carried the light of hope within him and his compassion and love for the forlorn really strikes the heart.
Many of the forlorn are us when we are drowning in sorrow; when we lose hope and our confidence; when we feel abandoned or lonely; when we feel confused or discouraged; when we are full of doubt or regret; when we feel a failure and want to give up. All of us need an Ember in our lives and some of us are an Ember to others. We stir others up to try one more time and that is the story of friendship and community. These are the topics that come out in the narrative of this game. Very deep and sometimes sad because not all forlorn want help or to move on.
The narration is by a woman with an English accent and she voices the emotion that each forlorn is feeling at the time. When Ember touches a forlorn, a puzzle is started. These puzzles are easy to medium level, with a few hard ones thrown in. These include mirrors and blocks and require some strategy.
Graphics are crisp and colourful. Each environment is crafted beautifully and the music compliments this. It is never intrusive, but is enough to enhance what is going on.
Game play is simple. You can use the arrow buttons (I used keyboard) or just click the ground in front of Ember and he runs to the spot. His motion made me laugh because he always looked like he was drunk as he rolled side to side! You also control lights deeper in the game and use WASD to rotate them.
I struck no bugs in this game. The small developer team did an excellent job here and delivered a very meaningful game. Achievements are easily obtained by just completing each environment. There are hidden boxes which hide messages and notes from The Wanderer who preceded Ember. Not finding all of these won’t affect your achievements.
Highly recommend. 9/10. This Ember is now heading off to put a bonfire under someone’s backside!! Keep shining your light of hope to others.
Postscript: At the end of the game, go back to the main menu and click on puzzles. There were 5 puzzles that weren't in the game, so a little hidden bonus for us!
