The Fall is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle videogame developed and published by Over The Moon. Its release has been possible thanks to the crowdfunding website KickStarter. John Warner, the creator of Over The Moon has always liked atmospheric games, and thanks to the help of people of KickStarter, he has been able to develop this piece of art.
This game is set in a futuristic universe in which the AI has been highly developed, so everything has a sci-fi atmosphere. The main character of the storyline is an artificial intelligence being called ARID (Armored Robotics Interface Device) that inhabits a mechanic combat armor suit. Once day, she is activated, but here is a huge problem; her pilot is unconscious and urgently needs medical assistance. ARID find herself in a very difficult situation since she gets no assistance from her superiors and most of her controls are deactivated.
She, or you since you are who controls her, will need to use all your brains to be able to activate all the controls and so, take your pilot to get medical attention. Gradually, she starts questioning her protocols as she sees that sometimes she even needs to put her pilot in danger to save his life.
Once you download the game to your PC and start playing, the first thing you will see is a human being wearing the combat suit that is falling very fast to an unknown planet. This moment is when ARID is activated, and the antimatter shield, too. After understanding that the pilot is unconscious, she decides to take control of the suit and explore the planet to get medical assistance. She has the ability of taking control of the suit in case the pilot was injured or unconscious, but she is not able to control everything. This way, our side-scrolling 2D exploration begins. We must use a self-controlled high-tech suit with a human inside. It is important to mention that we do not know too much about our human; we just know that he is unconscious (if not dead).

The Fall has slow-paced mechanics require the exploration of every corner of the scenario to find the item or clue that is needed to go on. This is a very usual feature of the Point And Click games, where you will have to solve a puzzle to complete the stages. The strongest point of this adventure is that it plays with the limits of an artificial intelligence. To solve a puzzle you must use the laws of robotics limiting your free will, so you must force the laws to the limits to help your pilot.
