And Everything Started to Fall

Review #94 – Free Video Game

And Everything Started to Fall

This game is beautiful. I've been away from this blog for a long while now, and I do have a list of cool games to review. But it was this one that finally got me of my ass and writing again.

Why? Because it reminded me of something important to this blog. And Everything Started to Fall is a short game about... “life”. I won't spoil every symbolism used in he game, that's for you to figue out. But from the get go, from the moment you stop being a baby to become a little boy, you can realize this is one of the good stories.

The art style is simple, but effective, creating symbols that easily evoke the feeling the designer is going for. And the music fits perfectly with the game, soothing and ethereal, as we move trough a lifetime in just a few minutes.

The gameplay is also perfectly implemented. It's a game, you have to make a effort to proceed, and it's neither so difficult that it takes you out of the story nor so easy that your mind wanders off.

Next week, we'll have a game that exemplifies the other end of what the Warehouse stands for. A game where mechanics are not only well implemented, but also explored in depth.

For now, enjoy this beautiful game and it's story. See you all soon.
