Development[]

Background settings for DAWN FALL were decided since the beginning of development, but as many backstories were set at different times and in different locations, screenwriter Makoto Fukami felt it was unsuitable to portray them in an anime format, so he incorporated them into a novel instead. BEFORE DAWN as a prequel would also serve to explain some of the technologies that play a role in DAWN FALL, specifically artificial intelligence and genetics.[18]
