Everything is out to kill you in The Flame in the Flood


The wilderness is not your friend

After a successful Kickstarter campaign a couple years back, The Molasses Flood is set to release its first game, The Flame in the Flood, later this month. The team, comprised of industry veterans who have worked on AAA games such as BioShock, Rock Band, and Halo, has been hard at work on this “rogue-lite” river adventure which seems to be a modern-day take on Oregon Trail, only the trail is a river and you never have to ford it (at least I hope not).

Players will be foraging for supplies, crafting tools, evading predators, and generally fighting for survival on their way down the unforgiving, procedurally-generated river. They won't have to go it alone, though, as the faithful canine companion, Aesop, will keep players company and help out in any way he can.

The newest teaser trailer shows off some of the predators that can be found in the surrounding wilderness and how to deal with them. You might want to employ a different strategy around the bears, though. It's probably best to stay very, very far away from the bears.

The Flame in the Flood will be coming to Xbox One, PC, and Mac on February 24 for $19.99.
