Patch 1.0.1: The Commendation Update

Patch 1.0.1 is live adding two new levels, three levels of difficulty and eight Commendation Awards to every level. Let's take a closer look.

New training levels
Since it can be a little overwhelming to patrol a full scale house in your first game, we've added a smaller training yard at the fire station.

Training Yard 1 - Two quadrant training level

Once you've mastered this first level you can try out the full size training level before heading out on a real call.

Training Yard 2 - Four quadrant training level

Selecting Difficulty
We've had a wide range of excellent feedback on the difficulty of the game with newcomers reporting that they are unable to finish the first level and veterans lamenting that it's too easy.

As a first step to addressing this we've added the levels of difficulty to the Experienced Game as they are defined in the board game.

Since the board game does not specify levels of difficulty for the Family game we've had to come up with some starting conditions that makes things a little easier in the early game.

Commendations add some interesting challenge to each level by imposing implicit restrictions on the options available to you.

You will need to adjust your tactics in order to successfully complete the level and earn the Commendation you're chasing.

Can you complete the game without using the deck gun or chopping a wall?

Commendations - Rank up your commendations by completing them on higher difficulties.

New features
  • Added 2 Training levels with reduced difficulty
  • Added Recruit, Veteran and Heroic difficulty levels
  • Added Commendation badges that show the highest level of difficulty achieved on each level
  • Added cell occupation markers to highlight survivors and hazmats
  • Added footsteps to survivor movement
  • Added system time label to HUD
  • Actions with insufficient AP now show as locked
  • Added text hint for locked actions

Cell Occupation Markers - Highlights the location of Survivors and Hazmats

Zip play
  • Reduced delay before POI and Survivor response during Call Out Action
  • Reduced delay on Firefighter extinguish
  • Reduced Roll time on Deck Gun Shot
  • Reduced Startup delay on Deck gun shot

Rule Corrections

  • Generalist should now be able to save 9 AP
Bug fixes
  • Achievement Priorities should no longer be granted on a loss
  • Fixed Argument out of range exception in Paramedic.DriveRoutine

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is live! What's next?

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is now available on Steam!

We teamed up with Indie Boards and Cards to port Flash Point: Fire Rescue to Windows, MacOs and Linux. This first release represents the content and features of the base game box with a few extras exclusive to the digital version.

Planned Updates

The launch is only the beginning, we have a number of updates lined up for Flash Point: Fire Rescue. Here's what we're currently working on:
  • Fig Backer Update Development was partly funded through the generous support of the backer community at The Fig Backer Update will include content submitted by the backers as part of their rewards. This content includes new locations, a new specialist and some features specially requested by the community. [In Development]

  • Fire Academy Challenge Update Understanding the strengths and limitations of your specialists is key to a successful rescue. The Fire Academy Challenges are designed to test your understanding of each member of your squad and how they work together. [In Development]

  • House Rules Update One of the benefits of a table top game is that players can easily modify the rules and experiment with interesting combinations. In the House Rules Update we're introducing options to mix up the rules of the game and up the challenge for yourself. [In Development]

  • Online Multiplayer While the game already has local multiplayer available it's not always possible to enlist a squad mate or two. Online multiplayer will enable you to find players when you're not sharing a couch. [In Development]

  • Future DLC The board game has a number of excellent expansions available. We will be bringing the specialists, locations and extra features to the digital version. The line up includes the Second Story, Honor and Duty and Extreme Danger expansions.

In the mean time you can start enjoying the game and help support development by buying your copy now.

About This Game

We got the call, a building is burning and there are people trapped inside. Fire is spreading and time is running out. We've had reports of explosions and the whole thing can come crashing down at any moment. You know the job: get those survivors out of there.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a turned-based strategy game that places you in command of a squad of specially trained firefighters with the sole aim to rescue survivors form a raging structural fire.

Your team will need to make the most of each turn using limited action points and specialized abilities to explore the environment, tame the volatile fire and rescue the survivors before the building is reduced to rubble.

As the official digital adaptation of the acclaimed board game from Indie Boards and Cards you will experience the same excitement and challenge of the original in a light-hearted digital form.

Key Features

Turn-Based Tactics: Coordinate your team as they identify and treat survivors, get distracted by false alarms, hold back the flames, dispose of hazardous materials and do their best to avoid explosions.

Efficient Specialists: Each member of your squad brings a unique blend of skills that you will need to carefully apply as you adapt to the ever changing scenarios.

Pick-up-and-Play: Quick to learn with a Family Game mode that reduces the games options for an easy introduction for beginners before they test their tactics in the Experienced Game modes.

Local Coop: Enlist family and friends to join the squad and pull the survivors back from the brink.

This project was partially funded with the generous help of the backer community.
