Invisible, Inc. and Don't Starve developer Klei Entertainment has revealed its latest upcoming title Hot Lava, a game about not touching the ground (because it's lava, you see).

Based on the childhood game popularised by that one episode of Community, Hot Lava is a first-person platformer that tasks players with hopping, grinding, and swinging on all manner of objects to avoid being burnt to a crisp.

The rules are exactly as Abed Nadir once proclaimed: "Stay on furniture. No books, no bags, the dead can't talk, and no coming back as a lava monster."

So far the only announced platform is PC. But the good news is beta sign-ups are now live.
