I've been waiting for Framed for seemingly years now. As the awards and the plaudits rolled in, I just sort of sat there with my arms folded in an intense stare. When is it coming out? When is it coming out?
Then last night I got a message. "Hey Mark, Framed is coming out tonight!"
So yeah, Framed is now available on the Apple store. Just like that.
What is Framed? At it's simplest Framed is a puzzle game. But the team at Loveshack call it a 'narrative panel-swapper'. This is a game in which you take a comic book panel, switch them out, flip them around, and watch the narrative shift as a result. It's pure genius and I'm so excited about playing the final product.
Why come out of the blue with no prep or planning or announcement? Apparently it's a "surprise" thing.
Consider me thoroughly surprised.
