Black The Fall is LIVE on Steam Early Access
Need your FEEDBACK! Build 0.2.50 is up
Description
Release date: Q4 2014
Black The Fall is an atmospheric side-scrolling shooter with puzzle solving elements. An odd and unexpected black and white dream inspired by a childhood passed behind the Iron Curtain.

STORY
Discover an industrialized long lost world living in the shadow of the totalitarian state. Everyone should be regarded as a potential enemy, an informer, a criminal.
Amnesic and unaware of circumstances which brought you into this place, you begin your journey which should reveal the mystery. Moving through a peculiar world you'll have to kill in order to survive, to solve different puzzles and to learn when to be brave and when to hide.

FEATURES
The Natives
The social aspect of the communism inspired the way the Natives behave. They seem to be humans, in most ways just like you, but slightly different. As all the people that lived back then they are animated by suspicion, fear, uncertainty. Everyone should be regarded as a potential enemy, an informer, a criminal.

The Machines
No one knows what they are and where they come from. Their soulless eyes always seem to spy on the living. Although the natives fear them, a strange symbiosis is at work.

Puzzle solving
Even the puzzles are inspired by the old “good days”.You'll have to queue up, to conform, to use the system in order to solve them. Just remember that solving one problem may lead to another. Choose your path wisely as things are not always what they seem. Jump, slide, climb or hide to overcome obstacles. Discover how to operate the strange machines that dominate the landscape but beware of the outcome.

Crafting
Explore every corner for you never know what you can find. Treasures may hide in dark secret places. Scavenge for resources as you can craft powerful weapons and special ammo.

Weather system
Be wary of the clouds for they bring a strange vibe into the world. The Natives react differently to it. Some may hide in the ground and lay in wait, others may become feral. Don't believe that lighting doesn't strike twice in the same spot as nothing is natural about this place.
Winter brings silence and peril as the black becomes white. Warming up becomes crucial, but you are not alone, as all things need fire to survive.

Stealth
Use the environment to your advantage. Clever tactics allow you to pass, kill or avoid foes. When in need hide to escape. Make sure no one sees you when you do it.

Combat
Enemies can be obliterated in a fun and brutal combat. Take aim carefully as a well placed bullet can save you. When fighting you can choose from a wide variety of weapons.

Weapons
The loud ones inflict more damage but quickly reveal your presence. Silent takedowns are always an option when you don't want to leave a mark. Don't hesitate, if they escape you, others may be alerted.
Clear your path using your trusty dynamite pack. If all hell breaks loose hold on to your gatling and don't stop shooting.

Pet
When all alone you might want to build your own friend. It might come in handy when fighting or solving puzzles.


PROGRESS
We are now in alpha stage with our first chapter. It includes some of the features that we want to integrate in the final game. Our playable demo lets you catch a glimpse of this strange, black world.

You can experiment basic interaction with the Natives and meet some of the Machines. Explore, shoot, hide, use objects and collect ammo and weapons. You also have to solve a few basic puzzles.

Your feedback is paramount and will help us a lot in our development process.

Looks neat. I really like Limbo-like style, mixed in with the sort of steampunk feel and unique soundtrack. But judging by the trailer, the animations and ragdoll effects could use some work. I trust that you'll get it done though.
