The Brigade

Welcome to Tinderbox

...sorry about the weather... The city of Tinderbox has, rather predictably, caught fire.


Although no-one has formally admitted responsibility, a large fire storm has appeared above the Pyromancers University and fireballs are raining down on the city.

As such it’s a good time to be a firefighter, if being hero is your thing.

In The Brigade you control rival firehouses offering protection to the good citizens of Tinderbox. The aim of the game is to win the Loyalty of the people with acts of heroic fire fighting and earn the coveted position of Fire Chief.

The Game

The Brigade was launched on Kickstarter in August 2017 raising just over $170,000.

The game is a semi co-op where players are rival firefighters trying to become the Fire Chief while also trying to keep the town from becoming a pile of ash.
