Survival games and Early Access go together like unfinished titles with an unsatisfying endgame and…Early Access, so it’s no surprise to see another one making a beeline for Steam’s pEarly gates. The Flame in the Flood is stylish, attractive, and features a dog sidekick, making it automatically more interesting than 99% of video games. The Molasses Flood’s game has been available (in unfinished form) to Kickstarter backers for a little while now, and soon it will be out for the rest of us via Steam Early Access.
