Narrative Adventure ‘Tails: The Backbone Preludes’ Announced for PC; 2023 Release

Publisher Raw Fury and developer Eggnut have announced a prequel to their narrative adventure Backbone, titled Tails: The Backbone Preludes. Players can look forward to new intertwined stories featuring four anthropomorphic animals within the same “post-noir dystopian vision of Vancouver.”

The following general key features are advertised:

  • 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 – In the beloved pixel art style, players can revisit iconic locations such as Gastown, and explore new spaces like high-class homes and cozy college dorm rooms.
  • 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.
