Narrative Adventure Tails: The Backbone Preludes Coming to PC in February 2023

By Joel | January 17, 2023

Eggnut and Raw Fury will release Tails: The Backbone Preludes on Steam on February 2. This prequel introduces a new series of stories surrounding four anthropomorphic animals in the post-noir dystopian vision of Vancouver brought to life in Backbone.

Players will experience a wealth of new gameplay elements, interactions, puzzles, and choices that will ripple throughout the narrative.

The prequel to the post-noir adventure Backbone lets players make branching decisions in the events leading up to the original game

Players will experience the narrative adventure game Tails: The Backbone Preludes, in which they guide four different characters through formative moments in their lives, set against a pixelized dystopian Vancouver inhabited by anthropomorphic animals.

As they traverse this post-noir narrative with branching choices, players will explore themes of change, circumstance, and consequence.

Key Features:

  • A powerful narrative of growth and change: Experience key moments in the lives of the main cast, set them on the path of self-realization or even destruction, and experience the growing pains of a world on the cusp of irreversible change.
  • Four stories, united by a common future: Explore the intricate backstories of Backbone alums Howard, Clarissa, and Renee, and meet Eli, the scientist who made a shocking discovery that will change the world.
  • Built for replayability: A brand-new branching tree interface allows you to track your choices, not only as you play each story, but every time you return for another run.
  • Play your way: Return to the world of dystopian Vancouver to learn more about your favorite characters, or start at the beginning - you can play Backbone and Tails in either order.
  • Gorgeous visuals: Players can revisit iconic locations such as Gastown, as well as explore new spaces like high-class homes and cozy college dorm rooms, all brought to life with the series' engrossingly detailed pixel art style.
  • Another banger of a soundtrack: Doom jazz makes a triumphant return in a brand-new original soundtrack by Danshin, perfectly accompanying the themes and characters of each story under a single melodic umbrella.

Tails: The Backbone Preludes is available to wishlist on Steam. To stay up to date on the game, please follow along at https://twitter.com/backbonegame.
