Over the past few years a lot of AAA studios have seen their doors closed leaving a lot of talented workers without a job. Do not fear though as a lot of these workers bad together to create a new indie studio, meaning they can continue spreading their talented work amongst gamers.
The Molasses Flood is one of these studios and is made up of ex-staff from studios such as Irrational, Harmonix & Bungie. Today they have announced the release date for their upcoming game, The Flame in the Flood.
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.
Get lost in the fragile beauty of a forgotten world designed by veterans of both BioShock and BioShock Infinite, played to the tune of an original soundtrack composed by alt-country star, Chuck Ragan. Hunt, trap, and craft to not only endure, but survive.
The Flame in the Flood is due out on Xbox One, PC and Mac on February 24, 2016.
