Klei Entertainment is known predominantly for its 2D work with games like Shank, Mark of the Ninja, and Don't Starve, but its latest explores a 3D world filled with lava.

The still vague premise is one that that will nake you slap yourself in the forehead and say, "D'uh!" It's the video game version of the game we all independently invented as children where the floor is lava, so we need to stay up on the furniture, which our parents loved.

You can check out a gameplay trailer below, which plays out like a first-person parkour game where you must keep your feet off the floor. The trailer shows levels in a house, in a gymnasium, and a cave and stars what appears to be an action figure in hazmat gear.

Platforms are still unclear, but PC by way of Steam is in its future. Klei is planning a beta for the game and you can sign up for entry here.
