A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 


Firegirl is an arcade-style firefighting game from developer Dejima Games. The game showed up at the Guerrilla Collective with a new gameplay trailer that shows the game in action. As Firegirl, players will rescue trapped victims, platform through buildings as they crumble, and fight against living fire monsters.

The game was one of the standouts during Guerrilla Collective thanks to its visuals. Dejima is combining 3D worlds with 2D characters and excellent fire effects. The result is an eye-catching style that feels unique among a glut of smaller games coming to platforms like Steam.

Steamworld Dig 2 publisher Thunderful is distributing the game, which is launching on PC and consoles on October 29. You can add the game to your wishlist on Steam right now.

Webinar

Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.

Firegirl uses a roguelite structure, which means that you will restart when you die. But it also has ongoing progression in the form of rebuilding your fire station. The goal is to bring “the fire brigade back to glory.”
