Fans of games like Minecraft, Don’t Starve, The Long Dark, or Terraria have another game to let them test out their survival skills coming to Switch. It’s called The Flame in the Flood and it launches for the system next week, October 12th.
The Flame In The Flood is a bleak but beautiful rogue-lite set upon a treacherous, procedurally generated river. With the help of your trusty dog, Aesop, The Flame In The Flood tasks you to make the most of your surroundings by foraging, hunting and scavenging your way through nature and the remains of society. With an evocative, homespun art-style and lilting, original soundtrack by Chuck Ragan, survival has never been this enjoyable.
I’m a big fan of games in this genre and I like the look of the game and the twist of traveling down a river with a companion while trying to scavenge for resources and survive. The game is being developed by a company called Molasses Flood. The team is made up of former Irrational, Harmonix, and Bungie developers who’ve worked on titles like Halo, Rock Band and Bioshock.
