Black the Fall Live on Kickstarter
So following on from the successful conclusion last Friday of the Moon Hunters campaign (which achieved a final total of $178,986 from an initial target of $45,000 on Kickstarter), we’re excited to announce that the next project being supported by Collective through funding is Black The Fall!

It’s a side-scrolling action adventure from Romania-based Sand Sailor Studio, inspired by the likes of classic games Flashback and Another World. The team’s asking for £25,000 ($40,000) to see the project – which is already partway through development – all the way to completion.

Black The Fall is a sharp, modern action game set in a post-communist industrial world. As amnesiac Black, you explore, solve puzzles, and decide how to deal with the strange, hungry things that live in this haunting place.
You can watch the trailer here:

“We’re really excited to launch our Kickstarter today,” said Cristian Diaconescu, lead game designer at Sand Sailor Studio. “In Romania there aren’t many options for game developers to find funding in order to make games. So being able to reach a great audience of dedicated gamers, with the help of Square Enix Collective, is a great opportunity for us!”

And Phil Elliott, the creator of the Collective project, added: “Cristian and the team are a really dedicated, talented group of people, and I’m really proud that we’ve been able to help them build support for their game idea. It’s clear from the trailer that they have a great vision, but now it’s over to the community to help make the game a reality.”
