The Flame in the Flood has been finally released after both a successful kickstarter and Early Access period. Studio Molasses Flood is made up of former Irrational Games members who worked on Bioshock Infinite. While the title may look similar to other survivalist games out there, the river has a few twists and turns to it.
I decided I’m not going to have a podcast this week, as I was busy with my temp job, but that does tie into the big news. My temp job is over, meaning that I can focus more on the site and posts now. Of course that also means that my source of income is gone. I’m going to be once again looking at the Patreon campaign for help with monthly funding, and any help with either donating or spreading the word would be greatly appreciated.
Furi is an up and coming action game from The Game Bakers and this is their first attempt at making an action game. I had a chance to talk to them about what makes Furi different from other games with its focus on boss fights and combat system.
Hitman Go developed by Square-Enix Montreal was an unusual game from the start: A turn-based puzzle game based off of the Hitman series which is known for being quite the opposite experience. Add in microtransactions and being a mobile exclusive at launch and the game seemed destined to fail.
Instead, it turned into one of the more popular games thanks to clever design and aesthetics and it’s finally made the move to the PC. While the mobile trappings are still here, this is a great puzzle game with or without the Hitman license.
