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 a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). 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.
