A new indie team boasting an all-star line-up of major studio talent has seen its first project successfully funded via Kickstarter. Massachusetts developer The Molasses Flood is now in a position to forge ahead with The Flame in the Flood, a survival game set in the aftermath of societal collapse.
The new game will see you take on the role of a woman named Scout, and according to the developer you’ll travel “by foot and by raft down a procedurally-generated river as you scrounge for resources, craft tools, remedy afflictions, evade the vicious wildlife, and most importantly, stay ahead of the coming rains.”
With studio members having previously contributed the BioShock, Halo and Rock Band franchises, the new offering from The Molasses Flood was always likely to attract plenty of attention. The Kickstarter drive surpassed its US $150,000 target with the best part of three weeks still to run and the team is working to bring The Flame in the Flood to PC by July 2015.
