According to its creators, The Last Campfire is a game about exploring the environment and solving puzzles. The character learns new skills while playing with which to overcome increasingly difficult challenges. The game world is ‘surprisingly large’, according to the developer. Since the game can be difficult at times, there is also an exploration mode, where players can explore the world without getting stuck with complicated puzzles.
