Created by XNA user SniperED007, Fireplace is said to feature "realistic smoldering embers and flickering flames," which then create "the perfect backdrop for a relaxing evening." As with all Xbox Live-published Xbox 360 games, a free demo is available through the online Xbox Live Marketplace.
Presently, Xbox Community Games carry a mandatory minimum price of at least 200 Microsoft Points ($2.50) for games under 50MB. 400 ($5) and 800 Microsoft Points ($10) price points are also available to creators. Fireplace weighs in at 6 MB.
Unfortunately, Shacknews was unable to test the demo due to ice storms that have frozen Fort Wayne, IN--the second biggest city in the state--and robbed many residents of electricity, internet, and other utilities.
