Backbone: Prologue follows a “raccoon private eye” through a noir detective adventure and is set to release this March.
Though this prologue chapter is only technically a demo, developer EggNut promises a new take on the point-and-click adventure style. Along with the announcement, the developer released a short clip via Twitter. Check out the game’s Kickstarter trailer down below.
Get your trench coats ready. Backbone: Prologue will be available for Windows this March.

“As Howard [the raccoon], you must traverse the different districts of a now walled-off Vancouver, sniff out clues, collect evidence, interrogate witnesses, and choose which leads to follow. Inspired by film noir, Backbone will submerge you into its dark dystopian atmosphere enhanced by the original doom jazz soundtrack.”
Though the news lacks a solid release date for the full game or demo, players can expect both before the end of the year. Last year, OnlySP reported on the game’s Kickstarter success.
Backbone is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
