Hot New Rogue-Lite “Flame Keeper” Coming Soon to Nintendo Switch, PC

“The coal still burns…”

Untold Tales have announced that the upcoming action rogue-lite Flame Keeper will be coming to Nintendo Switch, Epic Games store and Steam PC on 17 March.

Developed by Kautki Cave, Flame Keeper puts players in control of a tiny piece of burning coal named Ignis, who is on a quest to restore the “Eternal Flame.” The kicker is that your life is both your currency and the source of your fire attacks, so you’ll have to strategically balance all of these successfully navigate a dark, savage world swarming with monsters.

Untold Tales has also revealed that Flame Keeper will receive ongoing updates post-release based on player feedback, including new weapons, perks, biomes, enemies, bosses, items and other content.

Here’s the official breakdown of Flame Keeper from Untold Tales, followed by a recent trailer:


Take on hordes of enemies using a multitude of moves and attacks including punch combos, fiery dashes, wide area-of-effect stomps, and powerful finishers that deal decisive damage. Each biome in Flame Keeper is inhabited by unique foes and obstacles of increasing difficulty that you’ll need to learn to beat.


In order to progress you’ll also need to upgrade little coal via skills and passive abilities. Mix and match skills in the same run to create tons of different builds.


In order to restore the Eternal Flame, you must scour each environment for what remains of its energy and transfer it back into each stage’s Fire Camp. Find the right balance of keeping yourself alive and fighting while still progressing.


At the start of each level lies Vulpis Village. Here you can rest, enhance abilities, rebuild and upgrade structures thanks to resources you collect.

Flame Keeper is scheduled to release on 17 March for Nintendo Switch, the Epic Games store and Steam PC.
