If you enjoyed the Windows Media Player Yule Log visualization
but don’t have a PC in your living room, you may want to check out this virtual fireplace
instead. As Major Nelson reports
, an Xbox LIVE Member SniperED007
used the XNA tools to create this visualization “that has all the sights and sounds of a nice wintery fireplace.”
You can see the fireplace in action here at XNA.com
and you can add the demo directly to your Xbox 360 download queue
According to SniperED007, Fireplace will allow you to “Enjoy the awesome ambiance of a crackling fireplace in your living room. With realistic smoldering embers and flickering flames it sets the perfect backdrop for a relaxing evening.” The demo is free, the full version is 400 points.
