'Flame Over' (PSV) - New Screens

In Flame Over you guide a firefighter through the sixteen floors of Infernal Industries' skyscraping HQ, exploring your environment, seeking out loot, secrets and power ups and hunting down blazes against the clock.

As you guide Blaze through this mazelike building on your quest to put out this deadly inferno and save the day, you’ll move through 4 different zones each with their own unique features and hazards.

"On top of its highly original setting, Flame Over is a game of several firsts for Laughing Jackal. It’s our first game created using Unity (which really is great by the way), our first game in 3D and our first ever action game. It’s also by FAR our most ambitious project to date, having been in the works for over a year,” says Laughing Jackal Senior Producer Alasdair Evans.

Flame Over’s core gameplay involves using equipment such as your mini-map, thermometer and fire fighting gear to seek out and extinguish the fires on each floor of the Infernal Industries building, in a race to complete each level before time runs out.

You can boost your chances by buying powerups and rescuing the stranded workers and cats left behind on each floor.

All levels in Flame Over are fully destructible and feature items that the fire is able to spread to and consume. The fire can also create backdrafts and unstoppable walls of flame, along with a host of other dangers. By mastering the fire and its hazards you may hope to defeat the inferno and get to the top of the game’s Leaderboards with a truly epic Time or Cash score that will be the envy of your fellow gamers.

Key Features:

  • A multi-layered random level generator so the player can never 'learn' the best way through each level. Like a real firefighter you'll be walking into the unknown every time! Each level has its own theme, room types, fuel objects, mini missions, secrets and victims to rescue.
  • Play as Blaze Carruthers, London's foremost firefighting hero, who will be discovering each level's layout, using his trusty hose, extinguisher and fire axe to track down blazes, hack through doors and walls and rescue imperilled workers and - of COURSE - save cutesy cats.
  • With no two playthroughs ever the same, players can also save out their favourite levels, set Challenges and share them with their friends other players worldwide using Near. 
  • You will also be able to fuel the flame war using more traditional Cash Dash and Time Attack leaderboards.
