Description: The latest animated experience from the award-winning Baobab Studios. In Bonfire, you play the lead role in an interactive narrative. As Space Scout 817, you’re on a mission to discover a new home for the human race. Too bad your piloting skills lack… precision. You crash-land at night on a mysterious unknown planet three-hundred light-years from Earth. Your only source of light is your makeshift bonfire. Beyond its glow everything falls to darkness. And what are those strange noises coming from the alien jungle?

To survive you only have your instincts and robot sidekick, Debbie, voiced by Ali Wong, Debbie’s companionship comes with a signature wariness. When a chance meeting with a local inhabitant further steers your mission off course, you learn that unexpected encounters just might result in lasting friendships. You’ll have the opportunity to embrace, explore and influence the world around you. In the end, the choice is yours: Will you follow your captain or your conscience?

Review: At the end of the day, you either love this type of short animated VR experience or you don’t. Personally, I loved it as I do all of this type of VR content, but I can see why some people think it is a little overpriced given that it only lasts for about 20 minutes. This is just one of those safe showcase apps that you can show your friends and younger ones without things getting complicated. Just be aware that you are paying for 20 minutes of high quality 360 video animation and not a game, that way you should realise what you are letting yourself in for.
