The Flame in the Flood

This is a very repetitive rogue-like survival game. Loot all the things, craft food, wear protective clothing against rain and temperature, eat, drink, craft bandages etc. The unique part is that you're on a raft moving from location to location, so you loot somewhere and move on; no going back. I love the world's art style, but the main character looks freaky. As far as I can make out, the story is "There's a river and you have a raft - you should go as far as you can without dying" - that's it. Controls are 'meh', inventory management is non existent; there are no sorting options, no scroll bars. A functional survival game with no soul.
