The second entry in independent developer Over The Moon's The Fall trilogy, The Fall Part 2: Unbound, is set to release next month.
Coming to PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC/Mac/Linux on Feb. 13, The Fall Part 2: Unbound is a hybrid of metroidvania exploration combined with brain teasing point-and-click adventure puzzles. The game also boasts a "healthy dose" of hard sci-fi. The sequel picks up where its predecessor left off as we follow the exploits of A.R.I.D., a rogue AI who’s rewritten its protocol to follow one rule: “save myself”. The new parameters of A.R.I.D.’s programming have allowed her the ability to possess new hosts including a posh, reality-divorced Butler, a sexy service Companion and a mysterious combat drone, known as "One".
“With The Fall Part 2: Unbound, our goal is to give players a deeper level of gameplay and story integration than they have ever seen,” said John Warner, CEO of Over The Moon. “Our newest trailer highlights a strange and unsettling section of the game, during which players possess a robot designed to pleasure humans, only twist and manipulate her into hurting others to obtain their goal. We want this game to shock you, excite you, make you laugh, thematically challenge you and put you in situations you have never been in before. It’s our highest goal that video games can change people for the better, and The Fall Part 2: Unbound is as rich with interesting ideas as it is fun to play.”
The Fall released on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One in 2014.
