Behind The Frame is a narrative-driven interactive fiction game, where players are able to paint, sketch and retouch serene artwork.

This is a relaxing, eloquent game that can be enjoyed at any pace, perfect for those looking for a tranquil and calming experience, whilst uncovering a tale that has more then first meets the eye.
