Coming to Nintendo Switch Oct. 12 from indie developer The Molasses Flood is The Flame in the Flood.
Described as "bleak but beautiful," the title is a rogue-lite game that's set upon a treacherous, procedurally-generated river. With the help of the trusty dog, Aesop, The Flame in the Flood tasks players to make the most of their surroundings by foraging, hunting ,and scavenging through nature and the remains of society. The game features an evocative, homespun art-style and lilting, original soundtrack by Chuck Ragan.
“The natural rhythm of The Flame in the Flood — sailing from island to island, gathering resources and hunting wild animals — is a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch,” said Forrest Dowling, Lead Designer of The Flame in the Flood. “Like Scout’s journey of survival, players will be able to shape their story wherever they see fit, be it on the couch, the bus, or even on a boat gently meandering down the Mississippi river.”
The Flame in the Flood is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
