Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars sells less than 200 copies on 3DS, work on future installments in question

We're sad to say that the situation for the developer behind Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars has gone from bad to worse.

We recently talked about the wrong version of the game getting uploaded to the eShop servers, leading to players getting a broken version of the game. That caused a fair bit of negative coverage and reviews. Following that, the game has sold less than 200 copies so far, and as far as we know, the version update hasn't been implemented yet.

Due to the extremely small return on investment for this game, the series' future is in question. Unless Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars starts selling better, the developer might have to move on to other projects.

Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars updated to Version 1.1

Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars has gotten an update to Version 1.1. We don't have patch notes for this update, but supposedly it improves loading times and performance, and also fixes some glitches. Check out Version 1.1 of the game in action above.

Locked in a single moment in time, various lives are in direct danger.

‘Groundhod Day’ Effect

When player controlled characters are defeated by in-game enemies, the player is sent back to the beginning of the storyline of the game. However, major objectives that have been accomplished will not be reset and the items owned by the player will be maintained. The player can use this mechanic to affect the outcome of the storyline. In the context of the storyline of the game, the characters are aware of this phenomenon, relying on this mechanic to progress the story. This ‘cause and effect’ mechanism is directly tied to the problem solving and puzzles of the game.
