Developer The Molasses Flood contains former members of Irrational, Bioware and Harmonix, which goes some way towards explaining the very competent-looking campaign.
A swift glance at the trailer above should be enough to convince you of the game's potential. As lone survivor Scout, you'll raft down a procedurally-generated river in post-societal breakdown America, scrounging for resources and crafting tools and medicine as you try to avoid ravenous wildlife. Basically like the worst camping holiday ever. If you dally too long, the freezing rainstorms sweeping in behind Scout will finish her off.
The game also features a score composed by alt-country star Chuck Ragan (formerly of) and a cool dog called Aesop who'll fetch some of your gear back if you die. What more could you want?
There's a batch of stretch goals for the campaign. German, French and Spanish translations have already been unlocked, and when the funding hits $200,000 players will be able to customise their faithful raft. Checkout more about The Flame in the Flood over on its campaign page.
