Indie rogue-like adventure The Flame in the Flood launches today on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch for $14.99. The Flame in the Flood stars young survivalist Scout and her dog Aesop as they make their way through a post-apocalyptic America that’s being reclaimed by nature.
“The Flame In The Flood has always been about the journey rather than destination,” said Forrest Dowling, Lead Designer of The Flame In The Flood. “That’s partly why we’re so pleased to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch, a console that allows you to play on the go. This version of the game looks and plays great docked or in the palm of your hands.”
Scout and Aesop travel from island to island in a world ravaged by mass flooding. You have to keep yourself warm and fed, craft weapons and clothing, scavenge for supplies and herbs, and fend off wolves, bears, and illness. If you die, you have to start over. It also features a striking acoustic soundtrack by country-folk singer Chuck Ragan.
The Flame in the Flood was funded with Kickstarter in 2014 by new indie developer The Molasses Flood. It originally launched in February 2016 on PC and Xbox One. It released on PlayStation 4 earlier this year. The Molasses Flood partnered with publisher Curve Digital to bring the game to Nintendo Switch.
“We really hope that Nintendo fans enjoy The Flame In The Flood, ” said Simon Byron, publishing director at Curve Digital. “With the flexibility of Nintendo Switch, The Flame In The Flood has you covered whether you prefer to adventure from the comfort of home or out in the wild. Good luck out there!”
The Flame in the Flood has been rated T for Teen for Violence and Blood.
