The Black The Fall Journey

Dear players,

There is more than two years since we’ve met you and we couldn’t be more grateful. On July 2014 we have enthusiastically shared our project and vision and you’ve supported us fully. Since then, the scope of the project grew and our vision enlarged. We now have a Beta version of Black The Fall, with a compelling story, an original game mechanic,thrilling visuals and unique sound. We think it is much better than our initial prototype and we are confident we did the right choice in deciding to improve our original idea. But this came with a price, which eventually everyone had to pay: time. We needed more time to rise to the level of our ambitions. And for your patience of bearing with us, we want to thank you.
As our journey might look confusing from the outside, here is a timeline we’d like to share with you.

YOU are part of our story and this will always be of great value to us. Thank you for your support and especially for your patience in the past two years!

PS: As there might be questions left unanswered, here is our FAQ section .

Happy Holidays from Black The Fall!

Yesterday evening, Black and The Pet insisted to go out in the backyard and take a picture for the Christmas postcard. They even took the time to build a snow-sentinel, to keep up appearances and avoid any suspicion related to confronting the state-controlled status. Also, the sooty snow helped with creating such a realistic Sentinel...we're impressed! Always thankful to Comrade Nature.

Anyway, what they'd really want to tell you, on behalf of everyone here, is that we're grateful for all the amazing people we've met in the past years. We're sending you all our best, prosperous and well-structured thoughts, as approved by The Party. Wishing you the very best for 2017!!!

Oh, and talking about 2017, that's when we'll release Black The Fall on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One. We hope that this will be one of the hundreds of smile-bringers next year :)
