Back in gaming news, independent developer #inbetweengames, announced that their #Kickstarter campaign for its tech-noir tactics gameAll Walls Must Fall – has been# successfully completed and coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Hence securing €36,576, over double the €15,000 the team was initially hoping to raise. These extra funds will enable the studio to push ahead with plans to launch a closed alpha for Linux, Mac and Windows PC gaming. Coming in May for backers on itch.io with content updates planned for every 3-6 weeks. All based on the team’s completed stretch goals. So the game will then launch publicly on Steam Early Access. Enabling everybody to sample some gaming. Hence a cyberpunk take on Berlin club culture and classic turn based gameplay.

“We’re totally overwhelmed by the support of our generous backers,” said Jan David Hassel, Designer at inbetweengames. “The Kickstarter went way over what any of us could have reasonably expected or hoped for. Now the real fun, not to mention hard work, begins. As we deliver on the turning the Kickstarter into a reality. We’re totally committed to giving players the dopest, future soviet club experience possible.”

Over the course of the Kickstarter, and with the help of their generous backers. Many of stretch goals set by inbetweegames in the news have been met. These include:

In the world of All Walls Must Fall, the Cold War never ended. For 150 years, both sides have used time manipulation technology to observe and counter each other’s every move. Now this fragile state of affairs is approaching breaking point. While a rogue nuclear strike has been ordered that will send the world into turmoil. Both sides have scrambled to send agents back in time to find the person behind the order. In the hopes they might prevent it. If they fail, the whole world will turn to ash, forever.

So All Walls Must Fall is all isometric tactics gaming for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Where the action happens to the pulsing beat of the music. You control time travelling secret agents as they jump and loop through a single night in the city of Berlin. Using a pausable real-time system. While carefully plan your decisions and use powerful time manipulation abilities to your advantage. All while you carry out your mission in the shadows or in plain sight. Levels are procedurally recombined using a bespoke system developed by inbetweengames. Giving All Walls Must Fall a highly replayable campaign structure. While still offering individually crafted components and set-pieces.

About inbetweengames

In early summer 2015, we were 4 developers still employed at YAGER in Berlin, where we were working on Dead Island 2. Then we got the news that Dead Island 2 would be cancelled. It didn’t take us long to realize that most of us would wind up being made redundant from YAGER as a result. So we decided to jam for Ludum Dare 33 to cope with the situation somehow and made The Mammoth: A Cave Painting.

After years working in the AAA mines and seeing our work cancelled for the altar of money we figured it was time for us to try something different. So we decided to take a leap of faith and form our own indie team to make the kind of games we wouldn’t get the chance to make otherwise. Now we’re working on All Walls Must Fall – A Tech-Noir Tactics Game and the game will soon be releasing as a closed alpha. After that we intend to take the game into continued open development.

Since All Walls Must Fall is coming to Early Access after the May Alpha. We can confirm that a Linux build is already available, it’s not just news. So if you’re eager to back the project but missed the Kickstarter, check out the Backer Kit.

All Walls Must Fall hours left for Kickstarter

Back in gaming news, developers inbetweengames have a few hours left for All Walls Must Fall on Kickstarter. Hence this #isometric tactics game for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Where all the action happens to the intense beat of the music. While combing #XCOM #gameplay with Crypt of the NecroDancer.

Here’s the deal

So gameplay consists of players controlling time travelling secret agents. While jumping and looping through a single night in the city of Berlin. All using a pause-able real-time system. Hence carefully planning decisions and using powerful time manipulation abilities to their advantage. So as you fulfil your mission in shadow or in plain sight. The levels are procedurally recombined using a system developed by inbetweengames. Hence giving All Walls Must Fall a highly replayable campaign. While also offering individually crafted components and set-pieces.

Why does this matter?

So a bit of background for inbetweengames. The team consists of three former AAA veterans. All of whom worked on Spec Ops: The Line, Dreadnought and Dead Island 2 at YAGER in Berlin. So collectively they have been working in the industry for over 30 years now. Then in the summer of 2015, one of their AAA projects, Dead Island 2 was forwarded to another developer. Hence where the trio made the decision for change. So they joined the Ludum Dare game jam and made The Mammoth: A Cave Painting in 3 days. People liked it, so the beginning of inbetweengames. And as a smaller studio in Berlin. They are now really creating what they real want, All Walls Must Fall.

So from a Linux gaming perspective. I have played the pre-Alpha and it’s impressive, hence the news. And sinc the Kickstarter is already technically funded. The ultimate goal is to include West Berlin. As well as Alev the new female player agent in the game. So as you can see from the image above, this stretch goal is called Discrimination.
