I get super jealous of artists, like super envious, how they can draw and take things from their minds and transplant it onto a canvas just wow. I'm so bad at drawing even my stick figures come out wrong. If you're like me, you'll be delighted to learn you can pick up the paintbrush yourself in this bright and wonderous looking Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery.
This is a Narrative-driven game focusing on puzzle solving and painting. The demo is even out now over on Steam, which I picked up. The story is pretty simple, but even in the short demo I became engrossed very quickly. You're working on painting your masterpiece to submit to a gallery. What quickly emerges is how close to real-life this feels, from the handwritten notes, the coffee on the counter, an open laptop and the organised chaos that is the canvasses.
The jaw-dropping Studio-Ghibli inspired graphics and animation are truly gorgeous to see, watching your character paint, sketch, even your neighbour passing glances or your cat stretching, all of which summon warm, blissful joy. While you're engrossed in investigating painting, colours and what that neighbour of yours is up to, you'll also be solving numerous puzzles to help locate the missing paint colours. The puzzles presented fit very well into the game and certainly adds to rather than detracts from the environments provided.
I'd highly recommend keeping your eye on this game as I'm confident it's going to keep impressing. Behind the frame has already started to win several awards already and will likely win several more. Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery will be out on PC on 25 August this year, and I hope you try out the demo experience and enjoy it as much as I have.
