Virtual fireplace ‘game’ coming to Nintendo Wii

Oh yes. The ESRB, the body responsible for age ratings on games in North America, has just revealed a rating for My Fireplace, a forthcoming Nintendo Wii game from Korner Interactive that the ESRB describes thus:

“[A game] in which players can tend to a virtual fireplace. Players can add logs to the fire, add decorations to the mantle, and pump air into the fireplace to keep the flames burning.”

Brilliant, and so damn weird it’s almost beyond parody.
