While I love blasting off faces and racing to the finish line, there’s absolutely something to be said for slowing down and taking in the beauty of the world. Behind the Frame absolutely encourages that mentality, focusing on a mix of the routine, observing and appreciating the world around you, and solving some rather simple but often quite wonderful puzzles as you go. Creativity exhibits itself a few different ways, and given its more mobile-esque roots there’s no surprise that it’s tendency is towards touchscreen-friendly play, though that translates just fine to a controller as well if you want to play it on a big screen. There’s no doubt that it was over quicker than I would have liked, clocking in only at a scant few hours, but there’s also no question that it’s a wonderful ride while you’re on it.
