LOS ANGELES, CA - June 2, 2022 - Publisher Akupara Games, alongside co-publisher Akatsuki Taiwan, announced today the release of Taiwanese developer Silver Lining Studio’s critically-acclaimed and award-winning Behind the Frame on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Released originally on PC and mobile platforms last August and praised for its art style and emotional story, Behind the Frame’s console versions leverage each respective hardware to foster a more tactile experience for players. Additionally, players on any platform, including PC and mobile, can access an all-new side story unlocked after the completion of the main game.
“Through the new console releases, we wanted to ensure Behind the Frame received treatment that made playing it a new experience - one that felt engaging and natural,” said Dean Razavi, Senior Producer at Akupara Games and Technical Lead on the console ports. “Rather than just wiggling a thumbpad back and forth to add strokes of paint, we wanted to bring the paint directly to the hands of new players eager to jump into the world and its story.”
