Fireside is a mesmerizing narrative adventure that beckons players to embark a non-combative journey through the great outdoors.

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

On your journey, you’ll collect an array of supplies, trinkets, and other stuff you or your friends could use. Trade with others to get what you need for your next steps, and provide your allies with the means to carry on! Use the materials you find or trade to build and improve your home and invite your new pals to visit and help out!

These gatherings form the heart of Fireside's enchantment, fostering a profound sense of fellowship and connection between characters. Make friends, trade and chat at the campfire, weave connections, and explore a serene magic-filled world.

“Fireside is a wholesome adventure that tries to capture the essence of camaraderie and friendship," shared Paul Redetzky, CEO at Emergo Entertainment. "From the hand-drawn art style to the soothing melodies that accompany players on their non-combative journey, Fireside is more than just a game; it's a tranquil escape into a world of compassion and empathy. We're confident that Fireside will charm fans of the genre and anyone who appreciates wholesome and heartwarming titles."

“We were instantly drawn to Fireside’s hand-drawn art style and evocative, wistful soundtrack,” said Andrius Mackevičius, Head of Publishing at Nordcurrent Labs. “Ever since we met the team at Emergo Entertainment we had no doubt that Fireside will strongly appeal to fans of the genre as well as everyone who likes cute and cozy titles.”
