Make multiple endings. I was trying out this game and it seemed a lot of fun, then I got to the end. The first time, I decided to save what was already there. Then I went to see for a different ending, this time I wanted to save the human race. If it’s just me, then I probably went for the same route twice and got the same ending. If possible, please let us see the aftermath from our decisions, since this is an interactive.
かなりいい。 素敵なインタラクティブ性を持った、クールな小話です :)
Pretty nice. Cool little story with nice interactivity :)
Very VERY enjoyable! I really love animation (Big Pixar fan here) and I love quirky character designs. Pork bun is a pretty interesting and fun creature. Also like the robot (and Ali Wong as the voice). Not sure if a famous person did General Graves, but he is hilarious too. I really enjoyed this and find the 4.99 to be a great value. It is a lot of fun to watch.
For those looking for content and to kill time, I would try something from the Oculus game store that is free to play (like Echo VR). I tend to play those too, but I do like quality content with high attention to detail occasionally. This is art vs a game, and I am digging every minute!
This is essentially a 15 minute interactive movie with a couple of different outcomes. I will probably try for the other alternate ending later. I will then let my friends give it a try. I think this company (Baobab) might be the next big thing :). Can’t wait for longer experiences.
We need bonfire 2!!! This game has everything, an interesting story, funny characters, and even an adorable pork bun and his many brothers and sisters. Baobab, this is a message to you guys, please make bonfire 2 😁
Great short game to entertain new users. Fun little game, that isn't too long for someone trying out a VR the first time. Also great for younger players with short attention spans since the game can progress even if they are struggling to do certain tasks.
Great starter game for little ones. The kids enjoyed. Just the right length of time for a game session. We limit our kids to about 30 minutes on Vr a couple times a day. Our 6 year old loves this game. Very cute. Great for little ones but may want to hold onto them for the beginning until the ship crashes. Our daughter got a bit dizzy at that first part. Very happy with this cute game. Humor is great. You need to play a few times to see and enjoy everything. Highly recommend as a starter game.
Really good short story. The game itself is REALLY short, but this dev is well known for that. I enjoyed the game even if it's like watching a small short movie. The price is pretty affordable and the characters really cute.
Best Show in siggraph. I have been looking for this game after I bought a VR headset. I love this game when I played around it in Siggraph 2019. I hope there is a infinite version that people can sitting around the bonfire, listening to radio and baking marshmallows.
Amazing app for first time VR player. I absolutely love this app. It’s comfortable and a good app to show to people who first try VR and show them the wonder of VR story telling. Very cute story. Love Ali Wong. Other people have review it to be lower than 5 stars due to the short length and the price. In my opinion, baobab is a small independent studio. They have the amount of budget to hire artists and also produce high quality interactive short story. I’ve played other games that cost way more with laggy frame rate and bad texture. I’m comfortable paying 5-6$ for high quality, no frame rate issues and good story telling. As a 3D artist, I know what it takes to get a product with this high quality. It should not be free and I urge other viewers to understand good art require money. Also, the quest is notoriously hard to work with in terms of VR app. I think they did a good job regardless. I can only look forward to more stories made by Baobab.
Opium Pulses Review. The developers of Bonfire are known for their VR-based interactive short stories, having worked on Invasion!, Asteroids! and Crow: The Legend. Bonfire is no different, in that it is a short animated movie, in full VR with direct but linear interactivity peppered throughout. The story is based around your experience after crash landing on an alien planet, a planet that really is not what it seems at first sight.
There’s not much choice in what or how you interact with the objects surrounding your landing sight and no option to move or explore the planet besides what presents itself to you. The experience is cute and immersive and genuinely humorous in some areas (immaturely flat in others). For those who just want to be immersed in and experience an exciting moment in time without having to think too hard, experiences like Bonfire really deliver. But there’s a glaring downside to these types of titles…
The length… it’s just far, far, far too short. At an absolute push, this title won’t last you much longer than half an hour, and with the lack of actual choices to be made, the replayability potential for the same person is next to none. Given that blockbuster DVDs offer up to 3 hours of content for just a few quid more, it starts to make the £8 you’d spend on Bonfire just a little painful, even if you adored the time spent in it. If the same length was applied to your time in space before you land, Bonfire could have avoided losing points due to its upsettingly short length.

Threw logs at Ali Wong - they planned fo. they planned for it... impressed that they handled me trying to break it. she gets increasingly mad and eventually ignores me and shuts off. instead of just cycling the same reaction. I appreciate this attention to detail ... also i chose pork bun over humanity. pretty good that they got me to care about him/her that much.
