The Flame in the Flood has Arrived – Launch Trailer

Available Today on Xbox One, PC, and Mac

The Flame in the Flood is a game about survival and reliance, in many ways echoing the team’s own journey after the closure of Irrational Games.

Similar in the way they picked themselves up after the big closure and started chasing this passionate new idea through Kickstarter and early access on Steam to finally arrive at where we are today. The Flame in the Flood is available right now on your Xbox One and PC.


The river cuts through the wilderness, a roiling path stretching over the horizon toward adventure and the promise of a better life… if it doesn’t swallow you first. The Flame in the Flood is available today on Xbox One, PC, and Mac.

With an original soundtrack by Chuck Ragan, 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.From cold to starvation and rapids to wolves, the odds are stacked against you. Craft clothing to keep the elements at bay, traps to keep yourself fed, and upgrade your makeshift raft to withstand the hazards of the river. With a little ingenuity and a whole lot of determination, you just might survive.

The Flame in the Flood is available today on Xbox One, PC, and Mac.
