The Molasses Flood

The Flame in the Flood couldn’t be off to a better start on Switch. Curve Digital publishing director Simon Byron mentioned on Twitter today that the game “smashed it” on the console, in which he wrote:


MCV followed up with Byron for more on The Flame in the Flood’s Switch debut. He said that the game “had its best ever day on any console since we’ve been publishing it, beating any other format we have launched on.” Byron was anticipating a certain figure in his mind, but the actual result “was a third over that.”

The Flame in the Flood is available on Switch today as an eShop download. Get a look at some footage below.

The Molasses Flood and Curve Digital have set a release date for The Flame In The Flood on Switch. The game is planned for launch on October 12, the two companies announced today.

Find some additional information about The Flame In The Flood and a trailer below.

The Flame In The Flood is a bleak but beautiful rogue-lite set upon a treacherous, procedurally generated river. With the help of your trusty dog, Aesop, The Flame In The Flood tasks you to make the most of your surroundings by foraging, hunting and scavenging your way through nature and the remains of society. With an evocative, homespun art-style and lilting, original soundtrack by Chuck Ragan, survival has never been this enjoyable.

Drink in the delicate beauty of post-societal America before the perils of reality begin to bite. Wild animals, the natural elements and the great, winding river all pose unique threats in a game where survival is achieved through a mix of smarts and resourcefulness. Playing as intrepid wanderer, Scout, you must feed and clothe yourself from the land and whatever else you find along the way. Craft equipment and traps, upgrade your makeshift raft and brave the rapids, all set against the stark majesty of the game’s forgotten world.
