You may have stumbled upon Backbone: Prologue over on Steam, after all, since first release back in April 2019 it’s picked up a rather tasty 130,000 downloads, 2000 reviews and a 98% positive user review score. Today though is all about how Backbone goes forward and with a new publishing partnership between EggNut and Raw Fury, the future is firmly focused on a PC and console launch in 2021.

Yep, 2021 may seem some way off but it’ll be here before you know it, and that is when the excitement for this raccoon-fuelled detective drama will really start to unfold. With plans for an early 2021 launch on PC and console (console formats to be confirmed but we’d expect Xbox, PlayStation and possibly Nintendo options), Backbone will see us able to uncover a cinematic noir mystery in the underbelly of animal society

This will come out via a blending of cinematic adventure and immersive branching dialogue inspired by classic CRPGs, as Backbone explores mature themes in a city of anthropomorphic animals where species dictates social class. As Howard Lotor – a private detective working a routine missing person case in a dystopian, alternate history Vancouver – you’ll be left to sniff out clues and evidence, interrogate a diverse cast of characters, solve stealth puzzles, and choose which leads to follow.

Backbone looks set to deliver a unique universe based on the real Vancouver, brought to life with a stunning modern pixel art aesthetic and original dark jazz soundtrack and thanks to the new publishing partnership between Raw Fury and indie developer EggNut’s, this highly anticipated noir adventure game is fast becoming reality.

Howard is a raccoon in a trench coat and what he stumbles upon will thrust him into a disturbing hunt for the truth.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
