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.
