Independent developer Over The Moon's sci-fi noir game, The Fall, is now available on Nintendo Switch.
Available via the Nintendo eShop, The Fall puts players players take on the role of ARID (Armoured Robotics Interface Device), the artificial intelligence within a high-tech combat suit, whose human pilot has been rendered unconscious. It’s up to players to take control of the suit and drag his lifeless body towards help through the game’s brooding, atmospheric environments.
The game combines classic adventure-game puzzle solving, side-scrolling action, and expansive Metroidvania-esque exploration. It also sets the scene for, The Fall Part 2: Unbound., which recently released onto Steam for PC gamers.
“I can’t wait for Nintendo Switch players to finally experience The Fall,” said Creative Director and Over the Moon Founder John Warner. “For those players that enjoyed The Fall Part 2: Unbound, this is where it started. For everybody else, now you have two deep, narrative sci-fi experiences to dive into.”

The Fall is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
