    The Flame In the Flood is a rafting exploring action survival adventure. Survive the apocalyptic aftermath by floating down-river in your custom raft and gathering supplies at random locations on the way. The river is always changing and every location is different. Watch out for rain, wolves, worthogs and use your crafting skills to make 100s of items that might keep you alive.

    Conclusion:
    After Visual C++ 2013 failed, I just ran the game again and it worked. Initially I tested with Wine 3.8 and the game ran so slow that I couldn't play at all. Naturally I tried a "staging" version and it ran perfectly. Unfortunately PlayOnLinux doesn't offer a 32-bit version of 3.10-staging which means it doesn't appear in the manual installation process. So we install with 3.0 then switch to 3.10-staging afterwards. As you can see in the video below, it runs perfectly without issues.
