Black the Fall Review – Communist Mechs?

Based on their childhood experiences in the communist-ruled¬†nation of Romania the developers have managed to create a dystopian world that draws from their own memories of a country that only abandoned¬†communist totalitarianism in 1989. Here they’ve taken their history and moulded it into a bleak vision of workers toiling away on dirty machines and stomping mechs that ensure none escape. Those who step out of line risk death at the hands of large supervisors and plentiful automated gun systems. It’s an oppressive¬†atmosphere that is somehow still full of beautiful, bleak moments thanks to a strong visual style.
