For many the constant grind of game development can be all too much to handle. But what would happen if the game you were creating suddenly dragged you in, trapping you inside the creation you have put together? That’s the basic premise of Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale from Sometimes You (Music Racer Ultimate) and Polygonal Wolf sees you dropped into the world of Ethan – your everyday game developer who is trying to make a bit of a living.
It’s here where Ethan’s life turns upside-down and when he gets a call in the middle of the night, the game he is working on turns, dragging him in to the virtual land that has been created. Somehow, somewhen, Ethan musts escape from the development hell that he finds himself in.
Success in Behind Closed Doors: A Developer’s Tale is found by the actioning of trials, as Ethan tries as best he can to get back to the real world, and his pregnant wife who is relying on him.
