Hey, do you remember The Fall?
That creepy action-adventure game that came out last year? Well, you should, considering it was popular enough to make it to PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U as well as its initial Steam audience. The Fall was funded on Kickstarter back in October 2013 and received over $38k CAD to fund this story driven adventure. The game is similar to Limbo, but your protagonist is a lot less helpless since they were a kick-ass robot.
Well recently, The Fall‘s developer, Over The Moon Games, announced that they are hard at work on a sequel to the game. This may seem strange to those who played it, but they said that it would not be a prequel and implied that there may be future titles after 2 by saying:
“The story of The Fall is just getting started”
They plan to create bigger environments and bigger puzzles, but personally I just hope they focus on fixing the original game’s faults. Don’t get me wrong, I love The Fall‘s story and dark themes, it’s my second SOMA game in my head, but the amount of times I got lost playing this 2D Scroller is embarrassing. Rather than making the puzzles bigger, I think the developers should focus on improving the consistency of the difficulty. The puzzles in The Fall always seemed to range from straight-forward to “Let’s look up a walkthrough”.
That said it’s only $9.99 on Steam (well it’s only $1.99 till the 1st of December) and honestly the story was worth that much on its own. So I’m cautiously excited about it.
