Remember that game you played as a kid, or possibly as a drunken adult where you can’t touch the floor because it’s made of lava? Well, Hot Lava lets you play again – in video game form. Hot Lava is a first person parkour (possibly Mirror’s Edge) inspired game developed by Klei Entertainment who are best known for their games Don’t Starve and Invisible Inc.
“Hot Lava transports you back to your childhood imagination. Relive those moments of excitement, joy and chaos. Traverse distinct worlds, from school hallways to the memories of your darkest fears. You will have to use all your skills to complete the treacherous obstacles that await.”
Hot Lava is the first 3-D game by Klei and it’s currently up on Steam Greenlight. There’s no word on release date, but you can sign up for the PC beta at the official site.
