Hot Lava Brings Childhood Nostalgia to Life in this ‘Don’t Touch the Floor’ Obstacle Course PC Title

If you've ever played 'the floor is lava' as a kid, then a game like this that takes the concept quite literally will be very familiar to you.



‘The floor is lava’ is a game we all played as children before the internet became a thing. We would jump from couch to coffee table, to ottoman, to various throw pillows, to loveseats all across the living room. If you touched the ground, you lost. Hot Lava is a game that takes this concept and makes it a very real, literal threat.

The Floor is Hot Lava! Run, jump, climb, and surf across nostalgia-packed environments flooded with hot molten lava. Explore alone, or join your friends. And whatever you do, don’t touch the floor.

In Hot Lava, familiar environments like your school, your living room, and more become lava-filled to the point where you will have to find clever ways to avoid the ground. Make your away across desks, chairs, office equipment and so much more to survive and throw your name on top of the global leaderboards. You will need to climb, jump, run, and even surf molten hot lava solo or with friends to complete various obstacle courses. Put your skills to the test and use your wits to survive, and whatever you do, do not touch the floor.
