Developer Molasses Flood and publisher Curve Digital have announced that The Flame in the Flood will be releasing on Nintendo Switch, on October 12/13, depending on which part of the world you are in.
“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 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 looked or sounded this good.
“Survival is a tough and draining affair. One lapse in concentration can cause death,” said Simon Byron, Publishing Director at Curve Digital. “That’s why we’re so excited about the Nintendo Switch version of The Flame In The Flood. With the portability of the console, players can survive in short bursts and maintain much needed dedication to the task of living.”
