Nature lovers with a soft spot for post-apocalyptic misadventure, lend me your walking sticks: procedurally generated survival sim The Flame in the Flood is docking onto Nintendo Switch later this week!

For those unfamiliar with this captivating indie darling, players embark on a riverbound journey as a young girl and her trusty canine companion in a constant struggle for survival. You’ll spend most your time scavenging for resources, crafting tools and evading local wildlife, all the while pushing forward down flooded river banks and whitewater rapids in search of a mysterious radio signal.

As someone who quickly fell in love with its simple mechanics and beautiful papercraft aesthetic on other platforms, I can’t recommended it highly enough. Not convinced? Feast your eyes on the gorgeous launch trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments.

 

 
The Flame in the Flood: Complete Edition releases this Thursday, October 12th, for $14.99.
