Over The Moon Bringing The Fall on an Adventure to the Wii U

Posted by Orla Madden

The dev is now an official Nintendo developer

Developer Over The Moon launched a Kickstarter campaign this month for The Fall, with the hope of bringing the game to the Wii U if it successfully reached one of its stretch goals of $29,000.

The developer has now revealed that it has become an official Nintendo developer, so the game will be making its way to Nintendo's latest home console despite the fact it hasn't yet reached the appropriate goal. The game will likely release on the Wii U shortly after its launch on PC and Mac.

The Fall tells a dark tale of a virtual intelligence called ARID, which is built into a high-tech combat suit and activated when the human inside is rendered unconscious. Mixing platforming and traditional adventure in an alien environment, the title draws inspiration from classics such as Super Metroid and the Monkey Island series.

At the time of writing, The Fall has currently surpassed its initial goal of $17,000, reaching $21,360 with 17 days left to go before the project closes. Did you help fund the title? Are you looking forward to the game's release on the Wii U? Let us know, as always.

Thanks to Ryan Millar for the tip.

Exploring with a flashlight always gets me. I hope it turns out to be a great game.

Looks very nice, reminds me of Dead Space (the suit) and Starship Damrey too.

Looks interesting, but I'm not a big fan of episodic releases. You never know what can happen between episodes (if they take forever or decide not to release it on your platform, like with Sonic 4), and then you're left with an incomplete game. Not to mention that it typically costs considerably more to purchase the individual episodes.

Looks exactly like Limbo mixed with The Swapper. Two games I really love. I'll definitely get it if it comes to Wii U and probably also pick it up on Steam.

"... because I want to get away from working with a publisher to make complex monetization schemes and DRM, and simply focus on making the best game that I possibly can."

While the game sounds and looks neat (and if he believes in what he says cool), but it sounds like he threw out a bunch of those cool-to-bash phrases to help sell his game. Here's to $10 or so for an episode!

I don't back games, but I love Nintendo system kickstarter starter games. Those who say they'll buy more than Nintendo games on Nintendo systems get to put the money where their mouth is.

I hate that not nearly as many indies are working on 3DS. I know why and everything, there needs to be more games that shine through the shovel of the 3DS eshop.

"official developer" meaning they're under contract with Nintendo or they're developing for Nintendo console?

Looks great! Limbo x Metroid, clearly XD
I'll pick this up for sure if it finishes being good, as I expect.
The indie games are looking better and better as time passes. I'm glad Nintendo is supporting them so strongly.
