From indie developer The Molasses Flood comes a rogue-lite river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten post-societal America

Travel down a long, winding and completely unique procedurally-generated river, through environments inspired by the Everglades, Mississippi Delta, Louisiana Bayou, and other quintessentially American places.

Scrounge for resources and craft tools; remedy afflictions, evade vicious wildlife and, most importantly, stay ahead of the coming rains.

Step into the shoes of Scout who, upon learning of an impending flood, strikes out in search of higher ground. Her only companion is a dog she’s raised from a pup after finding it tangled in a muddy sack in a river eddy.    

Scout’s journey will take her through unfamiliar lands of crumbling relics from long ago. It will be a hungry trek with scarce supplies, cold winds and rain always chasing and weakening her.

“Salvation lies at the end of the river,” people say. To reach it, Scout and her dog will have to survive a long and terrifying journey.

The Flame in the Flood is being developed for PC and Mac. A Kickstarter campaign is in progress until November 6, 2014. Your support would be welcome.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
