Wholesome adventure Fireside to Showcase Public Demo During Steam Next Fest

Settle by the campfire, immerse yourself in cozy gameplay and try out the demo today.

Prepare to immerse yourself in the warm world of Fireside as Nordcurrent Labs, in partnership with Emergo Entertainment, launches an enchanting public demo as part of Steam Next Fest running from February 5th – 12th, with the full game due to launch later this year on both PC and Nintendo Switch. The public demo goes live today at 2PM GMT / 6AM PT and runs until the conclusion of Steam Next Fest.

In Fireside, immerse yourself in a magical world, where the captivating narrative unfolds through a whimsical hiking adventure. As players traverse the spellbinding landscapes, they will encounter a diverse cast of fellow travellers during nightly campfires. These cosy evenings at the crackling Fireside serve as the focal 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.

Demo Highlights:

  • Experience the introduction and first 25 minutes of gameplay.
  • Get to know 4 characters from Fireside’s cast of 30 quirky NPCs.
  • Get to grips with Fireside’s mellow mechanics, collecting Soul Energy from the gratitude of your fellow travellers.
  • Explore part of the River Delta – Fireside’s first of three main areas.
  • Get a taste of the warm and cosy atmosphere of the game.
