Upcoming platformer Black the Fall looks an interesting one. Sand Sailor Studio is a Bucharest-based independent game development company founded in 2014. Black The Fall is an atmospheric puzzler which made its way from a successful Kickstarter campaign, through a gaming accelerator and onto a solid collaboration with Square Enix. The game concept came as a way to illustrate and express rebellion against the mechanisms of a heavily corrupted system, rooted in the decades of communism, Romania has endured.
After decades of toil, an old machinist plots his escape from the oppressive grasp of the Communist regime. Through hidden passages, shadow and grief, he struggles. Ingenuity, reflexes and deception are his tools. Along the way he befriends an abandoned little robot, and the aim is to escape this bleak and deadly world.

Black The Fall looks a fascinating experience and we very much look forward to delving deeper into the games story.
Black The Fall is coming to PS4, PC, & Xbox One on July 11th.
