Over The Moon has posted a new update to their Kickstarter page. Normally we wouldn’t post every time a campaign’s page gets an update, otherwise it would be nothing but Mighty No. 9 news every day. However, when there’s a significant information dump we’ll post it, and new gameplay videos fit the bill. In the 3 1/2 minute video you’ll see portions of the opening cinematic, and then an early puzzle. In doing so we’re given a look into how ARID, the virtual intelligence you control in the game, must circumvent some of her
prime directives programming to overcome obstacles.
A bit from our previous coverage of the game :
…a side scrolling action platforming that has as much in common with Limbo as it does Metroid. If you ask the developer at Over The Moon Games it’s also got a healthy dose of old school Monkey Island adventuring in it too. Contrary to what the screenshots and beautiful gameplay footage seem to show you, in The Fall you don’t control the Isaac Clarke looking space explorer, you play ARID, the suit’s virtual intelligence trying to save the unconscious pilot. While it may seem like semantics to say whether you’re controlling the guy, or controlling the guy that’s controlling the guy, this detachment lends itself to some fascinating story possibilities.
The Fall is about a week into if Kickstarter campaign and has already surpassed its original $17,000 goal by almost $3,000. The next order of business are the stretch goals, the next one of which, at $23,000, gives the game a significant audio upgrade. See the video for yourself right here.
