RTX – Framed 1 & 2

,

Framed is a game that has never left my radar. It is funky, it is novel, and it is unlike anything else out there. The premise of the game is extremely simple. You are fixing a comic book. There are various panels that you are able to move around. As you move them into the correct position, the story will start flowing and your character will correctly move between frames and progress out the other side. However, place a piece in the wrong spot and the game will come to a faster end than was otherwise intended.

While many of the different combinations are possible, the right path is one of both skill, logic, and a little luck. As such, it is great that mistakes are not punished. As a story puzzle, you are encouraged to try different combinations to not only advance the story but to explore alternative conclusions. I feel that descriptions cannot do this game justice, so check out the below trailer to see what I mean.

One of the greatest weaknesses about this game has is that it is not on Steam. This has limited its appeal somewhat to mobile audiences only. Now, in some great news, it looks like it is going to be on the way quite soon. As part of the release of Framed 2, coming in May, the developers at Loveshack are looking to make it a combined #1 and #2 deal, buy one, get them both.

I for one am extremely excited for this release, we will be sure to let you know more as we do. In the meantime, you can check them out HERE!
