The Great Outdoors: The Flame In The Flood

The Flame in the Flood's [official site] lead designer, Forrest Dowling seemed like an ideal candidate for my ongoing investigation of outdoor worlds in videogames both because of his name and because of his survival game. The Flame And The Flood sees you play as Scout, a woman trying to stay alive as she navigates her way along a fiercely flowing river. It manages to…

Red In Tooth And Claw: The Flame In The Flood

The Flame in the Flood [official site], out Feb 24th, is a wilderness survival game with a difference. Several differences, actually. First of all, it doesn't involve lots of first-person tree-punching and is more about isometric exploration than campfire crafting. And then there's the setting - you're in a drowned world, travelling by raft from one location to the next, searching for food, warmth and…

Feature: Survival game from ex-BioShock folk

Impressions: The Flame In The Flood

The Flame In The Flood [official site] is a 'post-society' survival game from The Molasses Flood, a new studio formed from the ashes of Irrational. It was successfully Kickstarted last October, and just sent out its first, very early and not at all finished build to backers (and press). I thought I'd have a look and see how it's coming along.

Survival Rafting: The Flame In The Flood

Many survival games are about building and fortifying, recreating civilisation starting with one single shack or hole in the ground, slowly building up until you've got all mod cons and a lovely new fitted kitchen. The Flame in the Flood is about taking what you can and getting the heck out, riding down a mighty river on your raft. Created by a bunch of former…
