For the next 60 hours or so, you can get The Flame in the Flood for free from Humble Bundle!

A rogue-lite river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten post-societal America. Forage, craft, evade predators. From the Art Director of BioShock and a team of veterans of the BioShock, Halo, Guitar Hero and Rock Band series comes The Flame in the Flood. 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 stay ahead of the coming rains. Features an original full length soundtrack by acclaimed Alt-Country rocker Chuck Ragan featuring The Camaraderie, The Fearless Kin and other special guests.

Personally, I love this sort of ultra-stylized artstyle, it looks like Where the Water Tastes Like Wine but at least five times more colorful. Rougelikes are awesome because of their inherent replayability, and this one improves on the formula by giving you an animal companion who helps out in a lot of different ways, such as alerting you to predators and providing extra inventory space. Also, any items in his pack when you die will be passed on to your next new save!

What a good boy!

I’d like to give a shoutout to Leftyluck, my friend who keeps noticing and alerting me to these free games. If you grabbed any of these old giveaways I reported on, you have him to thank!
