The Flame in the Flood official screenshot of a shadowy wolf

If you have a bit of free time and the will try out something new, you might be interested to hear that the rogue-lite survival game The Flame in the Flood is free for the next 24 hours. Simply head on over to Humble Bundle, go through the 'purchasing' process, activate your key, and The Flame in the Flood will be yours to keep for good.

As for whether its any good or not to actually play, however, I would go with a tentative yes. The difficulty curve is incredibly steep at the very beginning and you're probably going to die over and over again, but once you climb over that initial difficulty hump The Flame in the Flood becomes a lot more interesting, and ironically, a lot more relaxing as well. So if you don't mind losing a couple of 'runs' before you finally figure out what you're doing, I think it's well worth giving The Flame in the Flood a try - it's completely free after all!

If you're curious about what all of this looks like in-game, allow me to share with you the original launch trailer. It's a little bit outdated at this point, but it'll give you a pretty decent idea of what to expect. Have a look:

For those of you that prefer the written word, however, you'll find everything you need to know about The Flame in the Flood over at the official website. Have fun, and try not to starve!
