Nordcurrent Labs has announced Emergo Entertainment-developed cozy narrative title Fireside is coming to PC and Switch on June 4th.

It’ll cost $14.99 / £12.79 / €14.79 when it launches, and the publisher says that the “mesmerizing journey is set to kindle warmth in players’ hearts as they venture through the great outdoors and bond with fellow travellers along the way.”

On top of the release date, we’ve got a new trailer to go along with the news, which you can check out, below:


In Fireside, immerse yourself in a magical world, where the captivating narrative unfolds through a whimsical hiking adventure. Explore a wonderful hand-drawn landscape by traveling between campsites, and encounter a diverse cast of fellow travelers during nightly campfires. These cozy evenings at the crackling Fireside serve as the main point for nonviolent gameplay, featuring trading, cooking, and dialogue choices that generate “soul energy” – a magical currency for upgrading the player’s home. These gatherings form the heart of Fireside’s enchantment, fostering a profound sense of fellowship and connection between characters.

“With Fireside we wanted to create a warm-hearted wholesome adventure about the beauty of connecting with others, even when we’re all on our separate journeys,” said Paul Redetzky, CEO at Emergo Entertainment. “Fireside is an Adventure about Talking, Cooking, and Trading instead of Hacking and Slaying with small choices, heartwarming stories, and relatable characters that will make you happy.. This is an escape into tranquility, full of friendly faces, serene landscapes, and magical mystery. We can’t wait to hear about your experiences in Fireside when it launches on June 4th.”

“Fireside immediately charmed us as soon as we tried it,” said Andrius Mackevičius, Head of Publishing at Nordcurrent Labs. “Its whimsical art, humorous, touching dialogue, and breadth of player choice filled us with joy, so we’re very excited to share this experience with everyone else.”

Here’s the key features from the latest press release:

  • Campfire Conversations: Gather around the campfire with friends and engage in meaningful, heartwarming or whimsical conversations.
