The Flame in the Flood, a glorious-sounding rogue-like from a team of former BioShock developers, has hit its funding goal on Kickstarter.


The Flame in the Flood has attracted over 5,500 backers who have collectively pledged more than $180,000. That’s well over the project’s $150,000 goal, and 16 days remain on the clock.

Stretch goals have been announced and one – German, French and Spanish localisations – has already been achieved. Future goals include raft customisation, a PS4 port, and an endless mode, with more to be announced.

Check out Kickstarter for more information and to browse rewards. You can also donate via PayPal.

The Flame in The Flood is set in the backwaters of North America in a vaguely post-apocalyptic society. Players travel a procedurally-generated river, gathering resources, crafting, avoiding illnesses and adapting to the AI ecology.

Developer The Molasses Flood is staffed by veterans of Irrational Games and Harmonix, among others.
