Award-Winning Survival Game The Flame in the Flood Hits PS4 Today
[LONDON – January 17, 2017] It’s time for PlayStation gamers to demonstrate their survival skills in the beautiful yet unforgiving wilderness of multi-award-winning survival game The Flame in the Flood with today’s launch on PlayStation 4. Launching as The Flame in the Flood: Complete Edition from The Molasses Flood and Curve Digital, this exclusive PlayStation 4 edition contains a brand new Directors’ Commentary – which offers incredible insight into the design and development – a wonderful dynamic theme, two new system avatars, plus a host of gameplay tweaks designed to offer the most complete The Flame in the Flood experience possible.
The Flame in the Flood is a voyage of the unknown through a visually beautiful, yet impossibly harsh wilderness. Taking place in post-societal America, players must traverse through procedurally-generated landscape, foraging for supplies, crafting survival tools and evading predators. It’s a hostile environment, with every fresh discovery providing players with reward or taking them a step closer to death.
Released on PC and Xbox One last year to critical acclaim, including numerous awards such as Game Informer’s “Best Game Soundtracks of 2016” and GameRant’s “Best 2016 Video Games You Didn’t Play,” The Flame in the Flood was created by The Molasses Flood, a team of AAA refugees, with veterans members hailing from the likes of Irrational, Harmonix and Bungie. The team has contributed to massive critical and commercial successes, such as the BioShock games, Rock Band, Guitar Hero and the Halo series.
“As the first title for the studio, The Flame in the Flood has been a rewarding experience and we’re thankful to Curve Digital for helping us bring the game to PlayStation 4,” said Forrest Dowling, president and lead designer of Molasses Flood. “With the Complete Edition’s Director’s Commentary, PlayStation gamers will gain insights into our design and development decisions to create a lush survival experience that we believe they will surely enjoy.”
