Tails: The Backbone Preludes is a post-noir narrative adventure with branching choices focused on an intertwined series of vignettes about change, circumstance, and consequence. Guide four different characters through formative moments in their lives, all set to the backdrop of a gorgeously pixelized dystopian Vancouver inhabited by anthropomorphic animals.

Players can expect to experience key moments in the lives of the main cast. Set them on the path of self-realization or even destruction, and experience the growing pains of a world on the cusp of irreversible change. The game has four stories that are brought together in a common future.

In the beloved pixel art style, players can revisit iconic locations such as Gastown, and explore new spaces like high-class homes and cozy college dorm rooms. Doom jazz makes a triumphant return in a brand-new original soundtrack by Danshin, perfectly accompanying the themes and characters of each story.

Tails: The Backbone Preludes is available to wishlist now on PC via Steam. It’s expected to launch in 2023.
