The Flame in the Flood is a roguelike survival game developed by The Molasses Flood. The players objective is to survive the long river journey through the post-societal America. In order to survive, it is crucial to scavenge resources, look for food, find shelter, mend your boat and take care of your health. The players have a certain time limit as they have to advance further the river before the rains catch up with them. The game features a crafting system, hence why it is important to look for various objects in the game world. A complicated wound treatment system is also present in the game as players have to know how to treat a snake bite or hypothermia. The developers put a strong emphasis on procedural generation used in the game. Anything from the river itself to every AI encounter is generated on-the-go. Fear, hunger, and aggression affect the NPCs behavior. Resembling a roguelike genre, the death in-game is permanent to some degree. You will have to start from the head of the river but you are able to save some of your items using your faithful dog.

A very great Game with a charming World and unique Graphics. Also, the Soundtrack has succeeded in mega and fits the Apocalyptic Mood. The Game is very much to be assured of who is looking for a quiet Survival game with Authenticity Factor is well served here. This is about pure Survival. You start in a World that has been flooded. One is one of the few Survivors in the World. As a Companion, my one has a Dog. You move away with a Raft and travel from Island to Island. There are different Things here. With these Things you can craft Useful things that make survival possible. On the Island, however, there are also sneaky Animals that can make you beige like Fire Ants or other Animals. These can inflict Wounds that if you don't treat them properly with Medzin is an Invitation to Infections or other Diseases. But even an Ivy that is poisonous can quickly node out to us. But You can also get food Poisoning through bad Food. You have to sleep, eat, drink regularly or look for a roof over your Head in a Storm. You also have to adapt to Unworldly influences with the right clothes. Pro-Very good and matching Soundtrack! From the Field of Folk and Bluegrass-Beautiful Graphics-It's not necessarily easy-Here everyone has to decide for themselves whether they consider it pro respectively. Contra sees-There's plenty to discover and get done-Wonderful Atmosphere Contra-When you die, You start over. This is just about making the Game the perfect Survival game. Could be frustrating for some, though. -No Multiplayer Purchase is very worthwhile!

Product received for free As a Foreword: I'm not saying right at this Stage whether I think the Game is good or bad. In this Review, I summarize all the positive and negative Aspects. Pros: The Game has a super Game idea. It's a Survival game where you're out on a Raft. The Concept I find really interesting and it is also Animal fun to drive the Raft through the Area. Survival Mechanics is also very gracious on the Difficulty level "Traveller." So You can look at the World in Peace. I also find The Graphic Style very beautiful as well as the musical Accompaniment. In addition, one is accompanied by a small Dog. I like the Menu guide very much, it is very clear. Cons: First of all, I noticed negatively that the Lyrics are partially cut off and therefore illegible. I don't know if it's because of my Screen Resolution. Furthermore, I have found it difficult to capture the Background Story, you get little Evidence of it. In some Places the Conversations seem very strange and I was hardly able To draw information from them. My biggest Criticism is that the Raft is sometimes very difficult to control and you miss a lot of moorings as a result. This gives me the Impression that I don't get a lot of the Game with me. One last small Criticism is that I don't know until now how to bypass the wild Animals. I only recommend the Game further because I think the Game principle is very good. The Criticisms have not been so serious for me so far that I would say I never touch the Game again. Do you like to Form your own Opinion, this is just what I noticed about the Game.
