Thunderful Publishing and developer Dejima Games has announced Firegirl, a beautiful 2D platformer that has you tackling fires and building your base of operations. It’s coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S later this year.
As you start at your new job as a firefighter at a rundown fire station, you’ll be sent out on jobs where you have three minutes to save civilians from blazing infernos. If the time limit seems tight, you’ll be able to extend it by completing acts of bravery while playing the hero.
Outside of these intense moments, the Firehouse can be upgraded to gain new staff and equipment, as you turn it into your very own second home. The art style is simply stunning, as it mixes realistic fire effects with cute 2D sprite work. We can’t say we’ve seen anything like this, and the concept is truly unique. May be one of to look out when it hits Xbox in the future.
Take on the role of a young rescue officer starting her career. Armed with a trusty axe and high-pressure fire hose that also acts as a jetpack, Firegirl responds to emergency calls across the city. Can Firegirl save all the trapped civilians caught in each blaze? Can she uncover the truth of why these fires have engulfed the city? Find out in a mystery that goes all the way to the top…
