'The Last Campfire' Comes to Apple Arcade

The game follows the journey through wilderness "filled with lost folk, strange creatures, and mysterious ruins," in the hope of lighting the last campfire. The "storybook world" setting of the game allows for the exploration of unique, atmospheric environments and unusual characters.

The story is said to be "intimate and beautiful," with the creative team aiming to make "an artistically focused single-player adventure game."

The Last Campfire was first announced in December 2018, and is now launching on PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, in addition to ‌Apple Arcade‌.

This month has seen ‌Apple Arcade‌ gain several new titles, including "Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time," "Next Stop Nowhere," and "Game of Thrones: A Tale of Crows."

To all of the above posters...this game is also released today on PC and Consoles.
FYI. This is another game that Epic paid to not be released on Steam.

It's all about consumer choice. Remember?

Oh Apple.

It’s like they’re run by people who are over the hill with their best days behind them.

the hardware is good.
Mac OS is mostly good.
Apple Music is average since they webified it.

everyting else is bland.

Another game that Epic paid to not launch on Steam... for customer choice.
Oh, I see what you mean (it launched one year later on Steam).
From my point of view, exclusives (temporary in this case) are a good thing. They allow game developers to get good deals and, sometimes, some additional safety, in case sales end up being not as good as expected. This is especially important for more experimental titles. In any case, it's their (developers) choice.

As opposed to having only one store where you adapt or...get removed from the store and then you are out of the platform.
And I say this as a Steam user.

ps: Apple does the same with games on the Arcade, they are exclusive on mobile. I see nothing wrong with that.
