Behind the frame, a game whose art style is heavily inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s legendary Studio Ghibli now has a release date and is open for pre-registration as well!
Behind the Frame was recently announced at the “Day of the Devs” in June 2021. It was received very well and garnered extreme praise for its pleasing, handcrafted visuals.

About Behind the Frame:
In the game, the player takes control of an amateur aspiring painter who is about to complete a masterpiece painting which she is to submit to a gallery. She also has a mysterious neighbor who, along with his cat, makes our protagonist, the painter, quite curious. The game also creatively uses 360° panorama techniques to truly immerse the player into the game’s environment. In addition to this, the player is to solve puzzles that will help the painter to complete her painting, and “As her painting starts to take shape, uncover an emotional tale of chance and artistry revealed behind unrelated yet familiar moments.” You can read more about the game and have a look at the visuals on the game’s official website.
