Sean Murray, one of the founders of Hello Games, says that The Last Campfire was built by a few members of the studio who wanted to create "an artistically focused single-player adventure game."

The Last Campfire is the culmination of several years of work by a couple of members of the team who had the urge to make an artistically focused single-player adventure game. The result is something in which the player becomes lost within a storybook world, traveling through beautiful environments, meeting strange and unusual characters in a heartfelt story.
