Our videos of The Fall

The Fall may have been released a few weeks ago but it clearly deserved some coverage on Gamersyde. Taking its inspiration from the old sci-fi 2D games of yore (like Flashback and Another World/Out of this World), the first title of Canadian developer Over The Moon is a subtle mix of action, adventure and puzzles. What's most striking about The Fall is that it plays like a classic 2D game but it also feels a lot like a point and click. Great writing, well-crafted puzzles and excellent sound design are also part of the package deal, making Over The Moon's first project worth your time and money. A beautiful tribute to the games of the eighties and nineties that you shouldn't miss if you're a fan of the genre. Enjoy it now and look forward to their second game!

Sounds enticing. How long is it? If it's short, I'm more likely to check it out :D

5 to 6 hours at least I'd say. More if you get stuck I guess.

The game looks great, by the 3rd video I was like "Want to play it so badly!". Love how they integrated point and click with side scrolling mechanics.

This game slipped past my radar, so thanks a lot for posting its videos. Gonna wait till all 3 parts are released, hate waiting for new episodes for months.

Amazing how at the same proportion AAA titles are suffering severe cases of sequelitis, indie titles are abound with great passion, creativity and ingenuity.

Hope you guys get more time and that indie developers send you more codes for their games, as it's a great way to increase awareness about their games.

This game needs more attention, it's so good.

This looks very interesting! Once I find some time to play, I'll definitely get this one.

About the game

    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (8 Hours ago)
