'Behind The Frame' Gets Nintendo Switch And PS4 Release Date, Content Update For All Platforms - Trailer

by Rainier on May 11, 2022 @ 1:35 p.m. PDT

Behind The Frame is a narrative-driven, interactive fiction experience, with contextual and logic-based puzzles.

Guide brush strokes and solve a variety of puzzles to help an aspiring artist complete her masterpiece amid her brusque neighbor’s gaze and his pesky cat. As her painting starts to take shape, uncover an emotional tale of chance and artistry revealed behind unrelated yet familiar moments.

Behind the Frame is a vivid, interactive fiction about an aspiring artist on the cusp of finishing the final piece of her gallery submission.

A relaxing, eloquent experience that can be played at any pace. Become immersed in a panoramic world filled with resplendent colors, beautiful hand-animated visuals, and a smooth, easy-listening soundtrack.

As a passionate artist, seek the missing colors that will bring your paintings to life - all while remembering to take the occasional coffee and breakfast breaks that keep you going. There is more than what meets the eye, for every painting has a story to tell.

Silver Lining Studio and co-publishers Akupara Games and Akatsuki Taiwan revealed that Behind The Frame will release on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on June 2nd.

A major content update will simultaneously release that day on the aforementioned platforms, Steam, App Store, Google Play, and more. In parallel to the events in the main story, we follow another painter’s adventure as he seeks to pave his own path into the world of art, his identity within it, and staying in touch with a loved one. 

With the new console releases, players can enjoy an additional layer of immersion — using their controllers to gesture paint strokes at their screens or their fingers via the touchscreen on the Switch or touchpad on the PlayStation DUALSHOCK® controller to complete their masterpieces.


  • Paint, sketch, and retouch your artwork to complete your masterpiece and your memories using the DualShock controller or Joy-Con, or dock your Switch to paint with your fingers
  • Dive into and explore beautiful panoramic, hand-animated worlds inspired by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli visuals
  • Experience an evocative story, through the eyes of a passionate artist 

Currently available on PC (Steam), Behind The Frame is coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4 on June 2, 2022.
