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.

    Tiz Hasn't Reggie made it clear that he is not interested in that "Red Ocean" so to speak? Just expect fun games from Nintendo and you shouldn't be disappointed. (1 Hour ago)
