Wildfire is a stealth game in which ‘everything burns’. In this Humble Bundle-published title, you use the elements to your advantage to outsmart your enemies and free the villagers held captive by the Arch Duchess. You can even play co-op, if you know someone who’d like to watch the world burn with you.
