MELBOURNE – October 2, 2021 – The sci-fi RTS title Fall of the border by local Australian independent developer Stutter Fox Studios is participating in Melbourne International Games Week, a celebration of digital games including talks, events and activities hosted by Creative Victoria. The festival is currently taking place in an online format on Steam.
In Fall of the border players explore vast star systems filled with planets, moons, asteroid fields and nebulae. The game includes a detailed information system, complete with reconnaissance stations, scout ships and probes, each with tradeoffs in choosing between active and passive scanning modes. There is no global resource system, and instead all raw materials and supplies must be delivered where they are needed. The logistics system extends to the supply of combat ships, and a strike force that neglects to protect its supply lines or is cut off in enemy territory may find itself without adequate ammunition to defend itself or fuel to escape, or , in the extreme, with a slowly starving crew in the void of space.
Stutter Fox Studios is made up of Melbourne solo developer Todd D’Arcy. Fall of the border is the studio’s first title, and earlier this year it won the E3 2021 award for the most anticipated indie game.
Fall of the border is published by Hooded Horse and will be released in late 2021 for PC. It is available to be listed on Steam.
A press kit is available. For press inquiries, please contact [email protected].
