What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We decided to release through early access due to the nature of the game. We've built the campaign as a series of acts. This current version will consist of the first two Acts as we will be releasing more throughout the production of the game. Early access also allows us to root out any bugs and get feedback from the players so that we can change and add features to the game as it grows.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to keep the game in early access as long we feel the game isn't ready for a full release, this way we can have the players help in order to make our game the best it can be. This should roughly take 6-8 months while we complete the further acts and fix every bug or problems that may arise.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The early access version of the game will release with the first two acts complete with three survival maps ready for the players feedback whereas the full release version will have more acts with a completed story. The survival mode would have multiple maps which our early access players would have been happy with as well as a possibility of further games modes outside of the campaign however this is mostly based off our feedback from our early access players.

We will not have any paid DLC for the game, all new content and features will be free of charge.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game consists of two finished acts and three survival maps. There may still be some small bugs here and there and this is one of the reasons why we chose early access as while we have been playing the game as much as we can with beta testers there still may be some hidden bugs out there that our early access players will help us fix.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the early access is currently how much we feel the game is worth with it's current content and amount of gameplay currently available. Once the game is fully released we will increase the price to our full price however this is unknown until nearer the time. There is also no paid DLC for this game and all content is free of charge.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be holding some Q&A sessions and be responding to the community via social networks such as Facebook and Twitter as well as our website. We will be taking on advice from the people who have played the game and this can lead to us changing certain aspects of the game if the vast majority of the community is demanding it. We will be looking over the steam forums and social networks constantly during early access in order for us to release a final product that we and our community is happy with.”

Please read before purchase

Hello everyone, we thought we would finally give everyone an update on to what has happened with the game. When we first set out on creating this game neither of us had jobs and had a great deal of free time on our hands. However around 2 months after releasing The Falling Sun into early access we both got full time jobs at a Virtual Reality company and since then it has taken up a huge amount of our time and we could no longer work on the game in our spare time. So having said this I am just going to officially confirm that there will be no further updates to The Falling Sun, we are truly sorry for this as releasing a game onto steam was always a huge achievement for us.

About This Game

Overview


From a UK based indie studio comes The Falling Sun, a first person, horror game set in post-WW2 Burma. The Japanese have withdrawn after the Allied victory and British forces regain control of the region, however when a small armoured column goes silent, a young lieutenant is sent on one last mission to find out what happened. Upon his arrival he is faced with horrors beyond that of the World War, will you be able to overcome them?
The Falling Sun provides a gripping story in a refreshing environment all the while keeping you on edge around every corner. The atmosphere will keep you on your toes, keep a keen ear and don’t always rely on your weapon to get you out of harm’s way.
With a series of acts you can immerse yourself in the game’s story through campaign mode; or even face the onslaught of horror in survival. Whatever you choose to do, keep your wits sharp. The game currently ships with two acts and a survival mode but further installments will be added without additional cost from the standard game price.
