Comic books eh, who’d be interested in them? Don’t even move or nuffin’. You’d have to be a real hardcore nerd to take even the barest interest. Oh, that’s all of you, you say? And me as well? Alright then: the fantabulous looking Framed‘s premise is that by rearranging panels in a noir graphic novel you are given control of the direction and tone of the narrative. This forms a puzzle game where the challenge is to keep the main character alive through changing the context of his and other’s actions. It’s such a wonderfully simple premise that the fact I’ve never considered it before, let alone played something like it, is laughable. Potential is dripping from Loveshack Entertainment‘s idea and there’s a trailer in the next frame.
I really, really want to see more but beyond a promise of a release this year, additional details are mighty scarce. It will, however, be on display in the Indie Games Arcade at this year’s Eurogamer Expo. If you’re going, take a look and come back with lots of lovely stories to rub in my silly face.
