The Fall 1.52 - new stuff!

We're still hard at work updating The Fall with new additions. In case you didn't hear, we recently added Trading cards, a sound track, controller support upgrades, and bug fixes.

This update, we've been working with our friends over at , who did a fantastic job completely re-doing our French translation. It is now much better at providing an authentic The-Fall-y experience for native French speakers. Additionally, several language related bug fixes are in as well, mostly to do with text formatting, but a few general gameplay bugs have also been fixed.

I wanted to take a minute to thank the community (probably you, if you're reading this) for being so awesome at sharing your opinions about the game and reporting any issues when you find them. Believe it or not, this will be the first update that will be launched publicly - as to appear in the "updated games" section (which is why I re-mentioned trading cards at the top of this update). It's caused me to look back on how far we've come. The Fall has improved leaps and bounds since it was released last May 30th, and we've got you to thank!

That's all for now, but we hope to have another interesting update coming before too long (for everyone, not just French speakers :) ). I wish I could show you guys the stuff we've got cooking for Part 2... I'm so excited about it and I know you'll love it. But..... all in good time!

About This Game

Experience the first story in a mind bending trilogy! The Fall was recently awarded Game of the Year for Best Story from Giant Bomb.

Take on the role of ARID, the artificial intelligence onboard a high-tech combat suit. ARID's program activates after crashing on an unknown planet. The human pilot within the combat suit is unconscious, and it is ARID's duty to protect him at all costs! As she progresses into her twisted and hostile surroundings, driven to find medical aid before it is too late, the realities of what transpired on this planet force ARID to reflect upon her own protocols. ARID's journey to save her pilot ultimately challenges the very rules that are driving her.

The Fall is a unique combination of adventure-game puzzle solving, and side-scroller action, all set within a dark and atmospheric story. Exploration will be paramount to surviving your adventure. Utilize ARID's flashlight to uncover a myriad of interactive objects. If what you uncover is hostile, switch on your laser sight and kick some metal! Get ready for a disturbing journey as you fight, explore, and think your way forward, expanding ARID's world, in spite of her protocols.

The Fall features:
  • A compelling story - Crafted over the course of two years, The Fall's story is a cut above standard gaming fare.
  • Story/Gameplay integration - Players encounter challenges that force them to think in ways congruent with the game's story.
  • Thick atmosphere - A very well polished visual style is complemented with The Fall's full voice cast.
