Tumbling Apart impressions
Description
Release date: Third quarter 2017
Overview
You can't run from the past. But what if you could change it? In Tumbling Apart you live the story of Isaac, a man riddled with guilt over the terrible fate that has befallen his sister. When a mysterious power grants him the ability to re-experience their life and former tribulations, he must harness the potential of forever altering their tragic destinies. This artistic 2D RPG ventures a step further than other games within the genre, tackling themes and raising questions often ignored in the medium.



"This could be the next game that transcends the need for flashy modern gaming systems and tells its story through solid, simple gameplay, narration, dialogue and setting." -Orange Bison

Details
In Tumbling Apart, you don't really die. You live. Through Isaac and the horrific past he has shared with those closest to him. Like Isaac, we all have guilt. We have all made mistakes.

But what about the one mistake we can never forgive ourselves for?

What if you discovered you could somehow "fix" it?

Isaac is given just that opportunity.

Tumbling Apart is a heartbreaking tale of love, loss, and redemption, spanning across unique and aesthetic worlds that bridge the depths of time. Live out the story of Isaac's life and explore the human cost of abusive relationships, alcoholism, drug use and abandonment. Witness the devastating effects of personal loss transform into a hope born from the unlikeliest throes of darkness. The Pandora's box will be opened with Tumbling Apart.

This isn't a game. It's an experience. Desperate to be lived out. Demanding to be remembered.

"Tumbling Apart creates an air of mystery that drew me onwards, not dissimilar to the way games like Gone Home and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture have." - Andrew Jeffries, OB

"This is the game I have wanted to play. I highly recommend it!"- XstikermunsterX, Youtuber and Let's Player

This looks amazing, can't wait to play it! Just seeing the clips it reminds me of To the Moon (in both the emotional story idea and it's visuals), hope it gets a similar success.

The trailer alone, has peek my interest. The sprite "Interaction" is a next step of 2D Spites. I agree and back up the statement: "This could be the next game that transcends the need for flashy modern gaming systems and tells its story through solid, simple game play, narration, dialogue and setting." -Orange Bison
