“This game will unlock in approximately 1 week, 1 day and 15 hours” says on the Steam page for The Fall. That basically means that the release date is May 31st. For Europe at least. Since the press release says the release date is set for May 30, I’m guessing folks in the US will get The Fall one day before.
The Fall is a Super Metroid and Monkey Island inspired episodic game and last September it reached its Kickstarter goal in just under a week. It’s developed by an indie studio called Over The Moon and will be available on PC, Mac and Linux with a Wii U version to follow soon after. Here’s the new announcement trailer and below it, some features of the upcoming title
The Fall features:
- A Unique Story – Play as A.R.I.D, an artificial intelligence onboard an armoured combat suit, attempting to help the human occupant, who is hanging unconscious inside.
- Fresh Gameplay – The Fall finds a smooth way to blend together point and click adventure games, platformers, and shooters to make a compelling experience that’s centred around environment exploration.
- Rich Atmosphere – The Fall is set in a rich, detailed world, rendered with care in an art style inspired by the classic, LIMBO.
