Indie developer Over the Moon has announced that it is now an officially licensed Nintendo developer and will bring the upcoming game The Fall to the Wii U. The creator says the episodic adventure is inspired by a number of classic titles including Super Metroid. Gamers will play as a virtual intelligence called ARID, which is built into a high-tech combat suit and is activated when the human inside is rendered unconscious. Here are a few excerpts from the official Kickstarter page:
A fresh mix of genres - The Fall integrates point and click adventure games, platformers, and shooters into a very unique experience. Drawing equal inspiration from games like Super Metroid and Monkey Island, The Fall is humbly inspired by the greats that came before it.
A fresh narrative experience - The Fall has a story that focuses on "doing" rather than "watching". As players work their way through challenges, they organically find solutions that imply a larger narrative as the game progresses.
More than anything, however, The Fall is about exploration; it's all about that feeling of curiosity that pulls you forward. "What is this world? What happened here?"
There's no word on a release date, but it will come to the Wii U after it is released on the PC and Mac. For more details and artwork, check out the official Kickstarter via the source link below. Video after the break.
