Experience the alienation of a post-industrial era in a thrilling, atmospheric sidescroller; a strange and unexpected black and white.
Black The Fall is a sharp, modern action game set in a post-communist industrial world. As amnesiac Black, you explore, solve puzzles, and decide how to deal with the strange, hungry things that live in this haunting place.
Inspired by Amiga classics Flashback and Another World, Black The Fall is a 2.75D game about choice: you can use weapons and confront challenges with violence, or stay hidden from threatening marauders. It's an intriguing mix like a movie made by Tarkovski, Tarantino and Rodriguez.
Your journey begins in The Mire, a flooded forest exploited for gas and oil. The industry here is now in a state of decay, not quite abandoned but barely functioning. Unarmed and exposed to the elements, you must find your way out of this unforgiving environment.
The world has both free roaming areas, mostly deserted or abandoned, and dangerous zones that are crawling with Agents and Machines. Silent exploration mixes with fast paced action moments, but you choose the rhythm.
Stealth - use the environment to your advantage.
Combat - take a more violent route. Enemies can be eviscerated with brutal combat.
How you act changes the world - a reputation system tracks how you behave towards the NPCs. Using violence, solving puzzles or simply disappearing from view doesn't just change how you complete one level, but how the Natives behave towards you across the game.
Puzzle solving - the environment isn't just for hiding, and guns aren't just for killing -- but solving one problem may lead to another.
Crafting - secrets lie in every corner, and treasures can hide in the shadows just as well as you.
Dynamic movement - animation system allows complex interactions with the environment as well as with the NPCs, which gives new depth to the game's already intense atmosphere.
