Epic Games Store is offering The Fall for free as part of their weekly giveaway replacing last week’s Surviving Mars.
The Fall is the first game of its trilogy, the game is a side-scrolling puzzler where players learn the story of an AI stranded on an alien planet.
Take the role of ARID, the artificial intelligence within a high-tech combat suit. The Fall is a unique combination of adventure-game puzzle solving and side-scroller action, all set within a dark and atmospheric story. Get ready for a disturbing journey as you explore the world of The Fall.
Take on the role of ARID, the artificial intelligence onboard a high-tech combat suit. ARID’s program activates after crashing on an unknown planet. The human pilot within the combat suit is unconscious, and it is the AI’s duty to protect him at all costs.
As players progress into the hostile surroundings, driven to find medical aid before it is too late, the realities of what transpired on this planet force ARID to reflect upon her own protocols. ARID’s journey to save her pilot ultimately challenges the very rules that are driving her.
The Fall features:
- A compelling story – Crafted over the course of two years, The Fall’s story is a cut above standard gaming fare.
- Story/Gameplay integration – Players encounter challenges that force them to think in ways congruent with the game’s story.
- Thick atmosphere – A very well polished visual style is complemented with The Fall’s full voice cast.
