Fireplace Is a Pixel-Art Interactive Fireplace Screensaver

Windows/OS X: Like a magnificent 8-bit version of the cheesy fireplace DVDs that pop up around the holidays, Fireplace is an interactive screensaver where you can enjoy an 8-bit blaze, roast marshmallows, and more.

Run the app and follow the on screen prompts to build and light your fire. Once lit you can add logs, roast marshmallows and hot dogs, make s’mores and, when you’re tired of playing with the virtual fire, even throw a bucket of water on it.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I love it ! ^-^ My mom is always opening up a fire on the iPad, but this here may just work better :3

    This electric fireplace tv stand is very easy to put together; it takes about an hour and you will just need a screw driver. This item will look very nice in your living room with a flat screen tv on top. The flames can be adjusted and it can also be used as a heater if you don’t live in hot climate.
