Pixel art cinematic adventure Backbone looks good on Kickstarter

Posted by , | Views: 3,983

Canadian developer EggNut is hoping to secure funding for their cinematic pixel art adventure game Backbone, which does look and sound pretty interesting.

It will feature a "smell-based" stealth feature (mask your scent in a garbage bin for example) as well as action elements, where you will be tasked with solving cases, interrogating witnesses along with a healthy dose of exploration in a dystopian Vancouver.

Backbone should release on Steam, as well as GOG and Humble Store. They're aiming for a release with Linux support in Q2 of 2019 so it's a while away, sure does look good though. They're also working on a demo to be available for backers sometime this summer.

They've got around 18 days to go with $40K pledged towards their $63K (Canadian Dollar) goal, find it on Kickstarter.

Thanks for the tip, bingus!

There is a limit of times I can resist backing a game. This post was one too many and had to back it xD

No playable demo and $20 is the max I would normally spend on a kickstarter game. I will have to pass.

It looks like Backbone was heavily inspired by comic album series Blacksad. Since Blacksad is one of my favorite comics, I hope that Backbone will be good as well.

I didn't know about Blacksad but adding it to my next comic to buy, thanks
