From a UK based indie studio comes The Falling Sun, a first person, horror game set in post-WW2 Burma. The Japanese have withdrawn after the Allied victory and British forces regain control of the region, however when a small armoured column goes silent, a young lieutenant is sent on one last mission to find out what happened. Upon his arrival he is faced with horrors beyond that of the World War, will you be able to overcome them?
The Falling Sun provides a gripping story in a refreshing environment all the while keeping you on edge around every corner. The atmosphere will keep you on your toes, keep a keen ear and don’t always rely on your weapon to get you out of harm’s way.
With a series of acts you can immerse yourself in the game’s story through campaign mode; or even face the onslaught of horror in survival. Whatever you choose to do, keep your wits sharp. The game currently ships with two acts and a survival mode but further installments will be added without additional cost from the standard game price.

The story is interesting and the gameplay feels smooth. I did like it and just getting into it, I knew the game wouldn't be long. The game was confusing at times, when I first encountered an enemy, I steadily aimed at the enemy's head and I just felt my bullets just go through - as time went on, no matter where I shot, it was all the same amount of bullets to kill the enemy - well, until the ending at least (won't spoil). I didn't argue against it, it's an indie game, so I played on. The only other issue I ran into, and maybe it was just me, that if I ever strayed from the path to explore... I wouldn't find anything - Instead, I'd be punished for it with an enemy attacking and wasting my bullets. There was a decent amount to explore but I just gave up in the end. If the game is for sale, I'd check it out. Decent game otherwise.
This game controls a lot like Myst, with a gun. It's a bit wobbly in combat, but it works better than one would expect, and it's not often necessary to get into a fire fight. The real fun is discovering the secrets of this decimated world and trying to stay alive and make it through. It's presented very well and it's very well-aced. A real deal at its current pricetag.
