The Last Campfire release date for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Apple Arcade is Aug. 28, developer Hello Games announced Wednesday.

The Last Campfire puts players in the role of the adorable Ember, a small, blue-cloaked creature trying to find its way home in a charming, colorful and dangerous world. Players explore the world and solve puzzles on their journey, but they'll also be able to use an exploration-only mode to avoid puzzles they find too challenging.

While the majority of Hello Games employees have focused on the ongoing No Man's Sky for the past several years, founder Sean Murray said a small portion of the team worked on The Last Campfire in parallel.

"We look back fondly on being a team of four working on [our first game] Joe Danger, and we wanted to make sure we were fostering others to have the same learning experience," Murray wrote in a blog post on the PlayStation website.

"This game has been a passion project for a couple of the team here for the last few years, and we're so excited to finally let everyone play. We hope you enjoy!"
