The Flame in the Flood survives roguelike rains

Roguelike survival game The Flame in the Flood reached its $150,000 target on Kickstarter today, promising the delivery of the PC and Mac game. Developer The Molasses Flood will soon announce stretch goals, which may include PS4 and Xbox One ports, according to the project's FAQ. The developer includes BioShock Art Director Scott Sinclair as well as five other designers with credits in the BioShock, Halo, Guitar Hero and Rock Band series.

The Flame in the Flood puts players in the shoes of Scout, a survivalist that uses her wits and patchwork raft to avoid the oncoming rains in a post-society backwater America inspired by the Mississippi Delta, Louisiana Bayou and other real-life locales. Players guide Scout and her trusty companion dog Aesop through procedurally-generated rivers, crafting new tools and hunting down resources while avoiding predatory wildlife, all to the tune of an original soundtrack by alt-country singer Chuck Ragan. The funding project will complete on Thursday, November 6 and the game is planned to launch in July 2015.
