Falling is a mechanic in LSD: Dream Emulator. It usually occurs in water or a seemingly endless pit.
Occasionally a fall occurs when linked to the Violence District after finding yourself floating on top of a building or near one. In this case, taking a step will either teleport the player to the ground safely, or cause them to fall.
When falling the camera rotates upward slightly (not fully vertically) before fading out, and subsequently ending the dream.
Falling can cause the plot on the Chart to change greatly and even go off the main face.
