The Flame in the Flood (Video)

The Flame in the Flood
The river cuts through the wilderness, a roiling path stretching over the horizon toward adventure and the promise of a better life… if it doesn’t swallow you first.

The Flame in the Flood is a rogue-lite river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten, post-societal America. Forage, craft, outwit predators, and brave the rapids as you make your way down the procedurally generated river.

From cold to starvation and rapids to wolves, the odds are stacked against you. Craft clothing to keep the elements at bay, traps to keep yourself fed, and upgrade your makeshift raft to withstand the hazards of the river. With a little ingenuity and a whole lot of determination, you just might survive.

“The Flame in the Flood … lends a little levity to the ol’ not-dying genre”

“The post-apocalypse is more, here, than a voyeuristic, oddly fecund fantasy: it’s an opportunity to reappraise cultural institutions that are taken for granted.”
