Eden Falls trademarked by Microsoft as online game

Microsoft has filed a trademark for Eden Falls, with various clues pointing towards some sort of online game, possibly for tablets.

The trademark describes Eden Falls as “an online computer game”, providing no further details.

However, Gamespot dug up a few hints. A new Eden Falls Twitter account links to Microsoft’s Lift London studio, which focuses on digital release for “tablets, smartphones and beyond” and is believed to be working on at least three projects.

However, the EdenFallsGame domain is registered to a private user, which points to a project by Finnish indie Brimstone Interactive, described thusly:

“Eden Falls is a science fiction themed role-playing game, featuring deeply tactical turn-based combat and an exciting story of epic proportions. The game will be published episodically.”

In an FAQ, Brimstone said it expects the game to release in northern autumn for Android and iOS tablets, with a PC release to follow. Aimed at a mature audience, Brimstone’s Eden Falls is a single player RPG built on the Unity engine.

It’s possible the two projects are one and the same or entirely distinct. We’ve attempted to contact Brimstone for more information, but the studio’s contact details seem to be out of date. The art above comes from the indie’s website.

The new claim follows three other recent trademarks by Microsoft – Snap Attack, Secrets and Treasure and Screamride – and two from Sony – Kill Strain and Entwined.
