Hot Lava is a great looking new game from Klei (Don’t Starve & Shank), that allows players to play that age-old childhood game of ‘The Floor Is Lava‘ as they use a variety of parkour skills to traverse areas without touching the super heated floor.
While as a kid you had to imagine the lava flowing across the floor of your room, in Hot Lava Klei have been nice enough to create a perfect virtual rendition of it. As you make your way through the game you’ll traverse living rooms, schools, offices and other deadly lava filled locations in your quest to get places without touching the floor. To aid your progress you’ll have a variety of Mirror Edge-style parkour skills allowing you to swing, slide, shimmy and wall jump your way to safety, which should make for some great speedrun-focused gameplay.
It’s a fun looking game that looks set to blend fast paced parkour gameplay with a dose of childhood nostalgia and Klei’s quirky sense of humor. A parkour platformer well worth jumping on (just look out for the lava!)
