All Walls Must Fall out now on Early Access

Grab your short shorts and get ready for espionage, time travel and techno: All Walls Must Fall is out now in Early Access.

All Walls Must Full is a new tech noir thriller from Inbetween Games, the indie studio made up of ex-Yager developers, including Jan David Hassel. You might be familiar with his work on a little game called Spec Ops: The Line. You’ve probably heard about it; people still talk about it even now.

The game was successfully funded on Kickstarter earlier in the year, and following a three-month period of alpha access for backers, is about to be –

[CONNECTION INTERRUPTED]

DIVIDED BERLIN 2089, 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 A BREAKING POINT,
AS A ROGUE NUCLEAR STRIKE WILL SEND THE WORLD INTO TURMOIL. 

BOTH SIDES HAVE SCRAMBLED TO SEND AGENTS BACK IN TIME
TO FIND WHO IS BEHIND THE ATTACK AND HOW TO PREVENT IT.

IF THEY FAIL, THE WHOLE WORLD WILL TURN TO ASH, FOREVER.
BUT WITHOUT YOU, THEY WILL NEVER MAKE IT.
WILL YOU STOP THE CATASTROPHE OR PERPETUATE THE CYCLE?
IN THE END, ALL WALLS MUST FALL.

[FEED RESUMED]

– sorry about that. Not sure what happened there. Anyway.

Following that alpha testing period, All Walls Must Fall is released onto Steam Early Access today. Codes are of course included for Kickstarter backers, who chipped in at the relevant reward tier level, but for everyone else it’ll cost you a mere $15.99 US / €14.99 / £11.99, and for a limited time, there’s 10% off.

It’s an isometric-ish strategy game, set in and around the Berlin club scene run through a Bladerunner-esque filter in 2089, and if you’ve enjoyed games like the original X-Com, Syndicate, or Rez, then you’ll get the idea of how All Walls Must Fall plays.

Oh, and it’s super gay; it is set in the Berlin club scene, after all. All Walls Must Fall may be take place in an alternate future version of Berlin in 2089, but in this Berlin – and all possible versions of Berlin, in any timeline or alternate universe – there will always be dudes dancing to techno in tiny hot pants. Always.


Pick up All Walls Must Fall on Steam.
