Hello internet –
A bittersweet day: today Moonshot Games is closing down for the foreseeable future. It was a fun run. Though it never made it through full production, we were proud of Fallen Frontier. We were also proud of Third Eye Crime, which did, and has found lots of fans all over the world. We’ll miss Rothko and The Dame.
Maybe some day the full story of Moonshot will get told, but in the meantime, I get to tell you what comes next. What comes next is The Molasses Flood.
I’ve joined up with some of the former developers of BioShock and Bioshock Infinite (including Art Director Scott Sinclair) and we are now officially The Molasses Flood.
And that’s not all. We have a game to announce, along with a Kickstarter campaign. That game is The Flame and the Flood.
The Flame in the Flood is concept near and dear to our hearts. Like Bioshock Infinite (and Third Eye Crime for that matter) it’s a game about America. In this case, it’s a river journey through a haunting post-societal America. Think of it as a post-apocalyptic Huckleberry Finn. Or Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road” on a raft.
The game is one of survival — forage, craft, heal afflictions, evade vicious wildlife, and stay ahead of the torrential rains that are driving you South. The river is procedurally-generated, so no two play-throughs will be the same. It also has a killer Alt-Country soundtrack by this guy.
Here is the trailer.
If you like it, please help us get it funded.
As for Moonshot, we will continue to support Third Eye Crime and our awesome publisher Gameblyr.
Moonshot is heading into cryogenic sleep for the foreseeable future. Good night, sweet Moonshot!
