    What makes my game unique?

    The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands is a fusion of strategy and survival. It's a simple-looking low poly style game which you can peel back layer after layer of to reveal more complex mechanics. What starts off with you gathering enough wood to stay warm escalates to a fully fledged war against the nightmarish creatures which lure beyond the bounds of your encampment. Even within the first seven days you'll go from being an unarmed worker in the wastes to the leader of a gang of miners, guards and wood cutters. And if you keep going then, much like Kingdom: New Lands or A Dark Room, the game takes the worker management to an outstanding pace as the odds stack up. However, those other two games feel like they grow with you, while The Bonfire feels like it advances with or without you, and every time that it escalates it feels as though it does so unexpectedly. The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands "A dark, complex, and deep strategy game that pushes you to build more at every turn". This all comes together to create a need to balance food for your people, weapons to protect you, and materials to advance technology. A balance of all three is required to make sure that you can keep your people strong enough to win against the odds.
