The Fall

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.
