Hot Lava Game Beta is a great looking new game from Klei (Do not Starve & Shank), that enables players to play that age-old childhood game of ‘The Floor Is Lava’ as they use many different parkour abilities to traverse areas without touching the super heated flooring.

Hot Lava Game Beta transports you back to your childhood creativity. Relive those moments of excitement, joy, and insanity. Traverse distinct worlds, from school halls into the memories of your deepest anxieties. This is a game of dexterity and creativity; you’ll need to use all your abilities to complete the treacherous obstacles that await.
While as a child you had to envision the lava flowing across the floor of the room, in Hot Lava Game Beta Klei has been kind enough to create an excellent digital rendition of it. As you make your way through the game, you will traverse living rooms, schools, offices and other deadly lava filled places in your search to get places without touching the ground. To assist your progress, you will have an assortment of Mirror Edge-style parkour skills letting you swing, slide, shimmy, and wall jump your way to security, which should make for some terrible speedrun-focused gameplay.
It is a fun looking game which looks set to blend fast paced parkour gameplay using a dose of childhood nostalgia and Klei’s quirky sense of humor. A parkour platformer worth jumping to (just be aware of the lava!)
Everyone here has played the game where you jump from one piece of furniture to another because the floor has strangely become mortal, right? In the model I played growing up, sofa cushions could be thrown across the room to create stepping stones, and there would usually be a debate as to whether standing on a pair of lace that had been left lying on the ground was permitted (in case you could stand on them and be safe, could not you just wear them and be invincible?).
It started its development by Mark Laprairie before he was hired by Klei Entertainment, as a “passion project.” It’s based mostly on the children’s game with the identical name. Hot Lava Game Beta is an adventure movie set in the first-person perspective. In the match, the player controls the character as they leap, leap, wall swing and run from object to object. A few of the objects include tables, sofas, and chairs.
Klei, masters of several genres, are working on a game that takes youth make-believe onto your PC. In first-person parkour game Hot Lava Game Beta, the flooring is deadly.
There are a few outlandish environments in that preview. I instantly feel that my taste will be the homes and schools, places where the game would be played instead of enormous, extravagant models that look like they might be full of lava and acrobatic heroics. Progression is a fantastic thing, however, and I doubt I would want to jump around a bedroom for days on end.
Hot Lava Game Beta is not a Klei original. Mark Laprairie, who is employed at Klei, worked on the game for a while once the studio bought it, took it on board and added their visual flair.
The idea instantly reminded of the Cult of The Wind, the game where you play as an individual pretending to be a plane and have dogfights with your chums. I would go for a hide and seek game with a neat twist, provided it did not turn into Five Nights at Freddy’s.
In addition to playing with your youth, Klei is working on a colony simulator named Oxygen Not Contained, a name which suggests things will go very nicely indeed to your colonists. Beta sign-ups for Hot Lava Game Beta are available now. I will spend the rest of the day rolling around the house in my wheelchair — the excellent ability in this greatest of games.
