What is Dwindling Fire?
Dwindling Fire is a Don't Starve-esque game. Keep your lights on and fight off the endless herds of enemies coming to get you.
  • Put down torches to see in the dark.
  • Plant trees to gather wood for torches.
  • Kill enemies to get flint, which you need to light torches.
  • If your lights go out, you lose. If you run out of HP, you lose.
  • Try to get as far as possible.
