Here's the announcement:
The river cuts through the wilderness, a roiling
path stretching over the horizon toward adventure and the promise of a better
life... if it doesn’t swallow you first. The Flame in the Flood is available
today on Xbox One, PC, and Mac.
With an original soundtrack by Chuck Ragan, The Flame in the Flood is a rogue-lite
river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten, post-societal America.
Forage, craft, outwit predators, and brave the rapids as you make your way down
the procedurally generated river.
From cold to starvation and rapids to wolves, the odds are stacked against you.
Craft clothing to keep the elements at bay, traps to keep yourself fed, and
upgrade your makeshift raft to withstand the hazards of the river. With a little
ingenuity and a whole lot of determination, you just might survive.
