Hoover Dam, also known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete gravity-arch dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada. The Dam is the first place encountered by all newly created clones in the post apocalyptic world of Fallen Earth. After the character creation screen you can choose to follow the detailed story driven tutorial to acustomise yourself with the game, or you can choose to skip the tutorial all together (recommended for players who have allready completed the tutorial).
The dam, located 48 km (30 miles) southeast of Las Vegas, is named after Herbert Hoover, who played an instrumental role in its construction, first as Secretary of Commerce and then later as President of the United States. Construction began in 1931 and was completed in 1935, over two years ahead of schedule. The dam and the power plant are operated by the Bureau of Reclamation of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981, Hoover Dam was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1985.
