EDIT: WTF Front page. So worth the 25$ I put on the Humble Bundle for the HTML5 module and the two days off I had to take from my job to make this. THANKS TOM FULP

Almost 10 years since I submitted something wow
Made for Ludum Dare 36-
Theme was "ancient technology", so this game is about discovery of fire, sort of... It's about men not knowing how to handle fire so they burn themself to death while transferring it.
7 levels.
This was made with Game Maker studio and I just got the HTML5 module from the Humble Bundle so I had to test it.
(The particle effects KILLED the frames-per-second so I had to turn it WAAAY down. Play the downloadable version to see the fire at it's full glory)

Some notes:
-See the fire bar at the top left of the screen to see when you're about to run out of fire
-Don't forget to press space to turn yourself into a fireball
