Liberated

Black The Fall is an adventure title developed by the independent Sand Sailor Studio with the help of Square-Enix from Japan – the game takes part in the Square Enix Collective project which supports independent creators. The production for PC, SWITCH and etc. is also a successful Kickstarter project.

Plot

The action of Black The Fall takes us to a communist industrial dystopia where the inhabitants are completely subject the regime. The main hero named Black is an obedient employee of one of many factories. However, when the entrance door gets damaged, he seizes the opportunity and tries to escape.

Mechanics

The action of Black The Fall on PC, SWITCH and etc. is presented from a side-view. The key ingredient of the game is exploration of the mysterious environment. Different locations, such as the mentioned factory, or a gloomy city, are filled with numerous traps, obstacles, and environmental puzzles. In order to solve them, you need to manipulate elements of the environment and make use of the laws of physics. Moreover, Black wields an unusual tool – a designator – with which he can control not only regular workers, but also machines and friendly creatures. Apart from that, the title features a stealth system that enables the hero to sneak behind backs of hostile NPCs and alert machines.

Technical aspects

The title for PC, SWITCH and etc. utilises 2.5D visuals that feature rather gloomy hues - the only intensive colour you see is red. The animations are created with great care – not only does Black naturally move, but also naturally interact with the environment. The developers call their technique 2.75D – even though most of the action is seen from a side-view, the camera often impressively rides, zooms, and shows the action from various movie-like perspectives.
