The Fall is live on Steam! Check out our announcement trailer!
Release date: May 30th, 2014
Think - Super Metroid meets Monkey Island - The Fall is a unique blend of action platforming and traditional adventure gaming, with a strong story, and an emphasis on exploration, and mystery.

The Fall is:

A unique story
The Fall is a cinematic platformer where you play the role of ARID, a virtual intelligence onboard an armored combat suit. ARID is activated when the suits human pilot is injured and rendered unconscious; It must take control of the suit and move the pilots unconscious body towards help.

The Fall borrows its story from classic sci-fi. ARID must help its pilot while still being constrained by its governing laws of robotics. Unfortunately, it is soon placed in situations where these rules prevent it from taking action; ARID must struggle with its own set of rules and self understanding if it's going to save the life of its human friend.

Fun Gameplay
The Fall was designed to capture that sense of wonder and exploration that great games like Super Metroid did so well, while adding a level of interactivity that comes from games like Monkey Island. Most of the gameplay in The Fall centers around exploring your environment to overcome challenges and make sense of the world you find yourself in. This world isn't always friendly, however. Combat in The Fall is just frequent enough to add an fun sense of tension, without taking over completely and flattening out the primary experience, which is an atmospheric sense of curiosity and exploration.

Please vote Yes on The Fall! Also, check out our Kickstarter page. If you want to see The Fall get made, backing us on Kickstarter is the best way to make that happen!

Just wanted to say that this is the best Greenlight game I have ever played. I voted for this game in the early stages of development and am very pleased that the game has lived up to my expectations in every way. Thanks for making this brilliant game and I look forward to the next chapter. I love this game to bits and it will remain on my hard drive indefinitely! Mr Developer, you have done the gaming world one massive favour and we are VERY proud of you for a work of art. Post this if you want and when you do give yourself a pat on the back and smile knowing that you are at the top of your game. Robert Blane.

If you mean the AI, well, this is the first character I would rather hear through a male voice...

Thaks 5ilvara, I'm not sure how the heck to get this page switched over to link to the store! I'll ask Valve about it.

as a matter of fact, The main character of The Fall is female already! give it a shot and see :)

If the page here :
features the same game, then congrats for the launch, it looks and sound huge !

Now, as a future thought, would you consider making a DLC with the main voices switched to the opposite s** ? Through I enjoy roleplaying, given the voices presence and importance in the whole game, given how great yours already sound, I wouldn't mind to buy a highter price just to be able the play as a woman -- which I am -- in such an immersive game.
