Backbone is a pixel art adventure about a raccoon private eye investigating dystopian Vancouver.
Dark story of loss and power set in dystopian anthropomorphic animal society, where social class is dictated by species.
Step into the shoes of an extremely relatable middle aged raccoon in a trench coat. As a detective, sniff out clues and evidence, interrogate witnesses, solve stealth puzzles, and choose which leads to follow. Lie, coerce, charm and persuade in branching dialogues with a diverse cast of characters inspired by old school CRPGs. Backbone's graphics are a stunning combination of high resolution pixel art and Unreal Engine tools like volumetric lighting, particle effects and custom materials. Detailed environments are modeled after the real streets of Vancouver, BC. Original doom jazz OST will keep you on the edge with the enveloping veil of bebop and cinematic soundscapes, where every sound tells a story.
