Another Backbone Game is Coming Next Year

December 21, 2021

Ever heard of Backbone? No? Well, I do have it wishlisted on Steam, so that's probably more than a lot of people, including you, faithful reader. It's done well enough to warrant a sequel or a prequel, though, although at this point we have no idea if it's going to be one or the other.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, it's going to be more gay


If you have no clue what I'm talking about, Backbone is a post-noir title where you play as a raccoon private eye named Howard Lotor. You will wander around a dystopian Vancouver populated by animals to "uncover a deeply personal story of change and transformation." Sounds a little out there, right? I know, I too would be reaching for a water bottle to sober myself up if I read this, but it's real and it's apparently pretty good.

Want to know more about the sequel besides the fact that it exists and it's gayer? Well, this teaser is all you're getting for now:


There's really nothing else out there at the moment in terms of info, but you should keep an eye on the official Twitter page just in case. Get it? Haaah.

Terrible jokes aside, for more information on all things Backbone, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
