Firestoke, the full service publishing company, founded by Paul Farley, which focuses upon games that bring joy, has announced its first title, Falling Out.
Created by PolyCrunch Games, the challenging yet accessible roguelite, will be published for PC and console later in 2022. However, a ‘feature-rich’ demo of the game is already available to download on Steam.
In Falling Out, players control two accidental adventurers, Giorgio and Felicie. A dream getaway quickly turns into a holiday from hell, as they explore ancient kingdoms, discover treasures, take on ghastly creatures and try to avoid traps. Navigate through procedurally generated temples that are scattered with unique obstacles and challenges – all offering the perfect balance of risk and reward.
Players can take part in either single-player or multiplayer co-op, utilising each character’s unique attributes by seamlessly switching between Giorgio and Felicie to traverse through each world and find the way out.
The temples are also a little prone to flooding…so don’t hang about for too long, grab what you can and get to the exit before it’s too late. Oh, and please don’t leave your partner behind…
Neville Attard, Founder of PolyCrunch Games, told the Scottish Games Network:
Falling Out was inspired by the charmingly colourful 16-bit era of gaming, the challenging and rewarding nature of classic roguelikes but with the aim to bring it to a wider audience. Firestoke was the perfect partner for my vision due to their desire to make accessible games that everyone can enjoy. That’s what we’re building and I can’t wait for everyone to try the demo!
Paul Farley, founder of Firestoke Games said:
We’re delighted to have partnered with PolyCrunch Games to bring Falling Out to a global audience. Our aim is to deliver compact, accessible, social and – most importantly – joyful games for console and PC. Falling Out is all of those things and much more! The game is currently scheduled to be our first release and we can’t wait to share it with players later in 2022.
You can download the demo of Falling Out on Steam.
