Raw Fury has announced a new publishing partnership to launch indie developer EggNut’s highly anticipated noir adventure game Backbone on consoles and PC platforms in early 2021. Howard Lotor is a private detective working a routine missing person case in a dystopian, alternate history Vancouver. But what Howard stumbles upon thrusts him into a disturbing hunt for the truth.
Howard is a raccoon in a trench coat.
A blending of cinematic adventure and immersive branching dialogue inspired by classic CRPGs, Backbone explores mature themes in a city of anthropomorphic animals where species dictates social class. Sniff out clues and evidence, interrogate a diverse cast of characters, solve stealth puzzles, and choose which leads to follow. Backbone delivers a unique universe based on the real Vancouver, brought to life with a stunning modern pixel art aesthetic and original dark jazz soundtrack.
If this has caught your interest, there is a demo available on Steam named Backbone: Prologue where you can try the early beginning of the game.
