Coming to Xbox One, PC, and Mac OSX later this month, The Flame in the Flood is a rogue-lite river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten, post-societal America. Forage, craft, evade predators, and stay ahead of the rains as you make your way down the procedurally-generated river. The Molasses Flood, the game’s developer, has released a video with some gameplay and a few quick tips for surviving the wilderness.
In The Flame in the Flood, you’ll get lost in the fragile beauty of a forgotten world designed by veterans of both BioShock and BioShock Infinite, played to the tune of an original soundtrack composed by alt-country star, Chuck Ragan. Hunt, trap, and craft to not only endure, but survive. Brave the dangers of the water as you seek refuge from the harsh realities surrounding you, accompanied by your trusted companion, Aesop. The ultimate wingman, your canine friend is as cunning as he is adorable, sniffing out and gathering the supplies essential to stay warm, stay fed, and stay alive.
The Flame in the Flood launches on February 24th on Xbox One, PC, and Mac OSX. Let us know if you’re thinking of picking up The Flame in the Flood in the comments below or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
