I love making a camp fire in the woods, so I thought why not create some digital firewood.


Download (0.3)
Left click to drop a log of wood.
Kick back and watch it burn.

When touched by glowing coals or flames:
wet wood (green) turns to dry wood and creates smoke, vapor
dry wood (brown) turns to charcoal releasing gas which ignites and creates flames
charcoal (black) turns into more glowing coal and then to ash (white)

Improved smoke. Glowing coal scatters more.

You can now play the game here at!

Added sound effects!

Pretty cool! I notice it slows down pretty quickly once you add a few logs. Do you have a plan in mind for alleviating that?


Were you playing the HTML5 version? Because the downloadable version is much smoother. (Made using Gamemakers native YoYo Compiler)

I'll see if I can find ways to speed it up. Or maybe I'll have to make it download only.


You're right. That is smoother. :)

Improved the ash and glowing coals. Looks way hotter now.

Increased performance of the game.

Close up camera mode with slightly slower time progression. (Move mouse down)

A new version has been uploaded.

More ash again.

A new version is up!

Small performance increase. (More to come)

Added another zoom camera which zooms in even further.
I'm thinking of having the mouse scroll-wheel control the camera. Not sure yet.

Ash doesn't float anymore, and can fall at a higher speed.

You can change the wall colour in the first room by clicking on the left side of the screen. (beige, red, blue, green, grey)

Added more details to the forest.
Needs another tree in the background.

Huge performance boost.
Paintings for every room.
Turn the river on/off.
Menu finished.
Seems like I'm almost finished.

Replaced the painting in the green room.
Christmas painting look nicer now too.
You can zoom even further in now.
Also many various finishing touches.

Game is finished!

Finally finished the first GIF of the game in action.
