The Flame in the Flood is a roguelike survival adventure video game developed by The Molasses Flood. The game was developed for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Xbox One. A PlayStation 4 version was released on January 17, 2017. A Nintendo Switch version was released on October 12, 2017.
The player character is a young girl referred to as Scout. Her companion is a dog called Aesop by default, but the player can choose for the dog to be named Daisy, who can sense danger and fetch supplies. Scout uses a raft to traverse a large river, the result of an apocalyptic flood which has turned the land into a series of islands. The player must pay attention to Scout's needs such as her energy, thirst, hunger, and warmth, and not paying attention to them can result in death. Like other roguelikes, death is permanent, although the player can restart at predetermined checkpoints along the river if they are playing in Campaign mode. There is a crafting system allowing the player to create new items. Players will need to scavenge areas for valuable items. Factors such as the weather impact the gameplay. Players are able to create insulated clothing to protect them from the cold. One of the developers referred to it as a "travelling survival game".
The player must try to survive a river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten post-societal America.
The game was developed by a team of people who previously worked on BioShock, Halo 2, and Rock Band. It had a successful crowdfunding campaign, reaching $251,647 of a $150,000 goal. Chuck Ragan composed the soundtrack. The game was originally available in beta, to its Kickstarter backers, and was released on Steam as an early access game on September 24, 2015.
