'Behind The Frame' Publishing Picked Up By Akupara Games - Screens & Trailer

Behind The Frame is a narrative-driven, interactive fiction experience, with contextual and logic-based puzzles.

Guide brush strokes and solve a variety of puzzles to help an aspiring artist complete her masterpiece amid her brusque neighbor’s gaze and his pesky cat. As her painting starts to take shape, uncover an emotional tale of chance and artistry revealed behind unrelated yet familiar moments.

Behind the Frame is a vivid, interactive fiction about an aspiring artist on the cusp of finishing the final piece of her gallery submission.

A relaxing, eloquent experience that can be played at any pace. Become immersed in a panoramic world filled with resplendent colors, beautiful hand-animated visuals, and a smooth, easy-listening soundtrack.

As a passionate artist, seek the missing colors that will bring your paintings to life - all while remembering to take the occasional coffee and breakfast breaks that keep you going. There is more than what meets the eye, for every painting has a story to tell.

Behind The Frame has been well received for both its striking visuals and approach to storytelling. Akupara Games has taken on the role of co-publisher with Akatsuki Taiwan to bring the game to new platforms and promote the game globally.

Seen so far only at award shows and showcases, the game has already received seven awards including The NYX Game Award for Best Visual Art and The Game Connection Asia Indie Development Award in 2020.
