ID@Xbox Spotlight: Head Down the River with your Dog in The Flame in the Flood
Survival in post-societal America is no joke. While iconic environments like the Louisiana Bayou and the Florida Everglades may have been the inspiration for The Flame in the Flood’s unique look and feel, you won't see much from our day and age in the game. Instead, only the remnants of a long-dead society remain for Scout – The Flame in the Flood’s heroine – to pick through as she makes her way down the river toward her ultimate goal. What that goal is, how she reaches it, and the things she manages to scrounge, craft, and fight off on the way are what the game is all about. At an indeterminate point in the future, Scout and her dog, Aesop, are fleeing from a deluge, heading down a procedurally generated river toward some ineffable salvation that she’s been told lies at its end. Hunger, cold, and dangerous predators will hound Scout and Aesop throughout, and it’s up to the player – and a bit of luck, since each playthrough is randomly seeded – to see the pair through their journey. The pair will find items, from bits of herbs to old tools, and will need to use them to craft all sorts of higher-level items for survival. Food and warmth are critical, too... and as Scout moves down the river, she’ll need to avoid dangerous obstacles and rapids on her raft.
Celebrate Gaming with April’s Double Games with Gold Month
You might think April’s the perfect time to joke around – but we have no intention of doing that here at Xbox. Instead, we want to take a moment to appreciate you, the Xbox gamer. Over the course of the Games with Gold program, more than 100 million games have been downloaded, with over 5 billion Gamerscore earned. That’s countless hours in the shoes of iconic heroes like Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 2, Noble Team from Halo Reach and many others all free with your Xbox Live Gold membership.
Slender: The Arrival Arrives to Give You Nightmares
Is your boring life currently defined by a noteworthy – almost alarming – lack of sheer terror? Well, we’ve got some great news for you, then: Slender: The Arrival is now available for Xbox One via ID@Xbox, and it’s sure to leave you huddled up in the corner, your belabored sobs punctuated only by the occasional bloodcurdling scream. Yes, it’s that classic scenario ripped straight from your deepest, darkest nightmares. An impossibly tall, thin, unsettlingly proportioned specter of death – the titular Slender Man – pursues you through a number of dark and terrifying environments. Armed with only a flashlight, it’s your job to collect the scattered pages of what we’re assuming is some eldritch, Lovecraftian tome (sorry, our reading comprehension goes out the window once the panic-induced adrenaline threatens to swallow us whole). Do this before the horrific nightmare man catches you, and for the love of all that is holy, don’t look at him, or shine your flashlight on him, or do anything but run, or so help us, he will teleport in front of you and rip your face off.
