Richly illustrated and graced with a charming soundscape, Behind the Frame is as much a sensory feast as an interactive story. Guiding a young artist to create her masterpiece while filling in the puzzles of her bittersweet past is deeply enchanting from start to finish. In her quiet moments between breakfast and emailing résumés, the game captures the strange and often lonely path that leads us from inspiration to art.

This game is amazing! I like how they gave us purchases for new chapters! But for my question could you guys do a part 2 ? I really liked the game and trying to find a game like this! And my favorite part about this is that there is an unknown truth in the end because he is the old women? Why was she crying? And for my opinion it was amber! We were going back when she was young then in the end we go back to reality. I give this game 5 stars. Amazing job and hope have a part 2!

This is a beautiful game! The studio behind this did a great job of interaction and art. It is a bit like a puzzle game like The Room series, but not so dark. I give it four stars because it is quite short and the story progression was a bit confusing to me (it could be a difference in American vs. Taiwanese story style). But I never got stuck and I really enjoyed the way you painted to continue the story. I absolutely recommend if you want a lovely iOS game with a unique gameplay and some simple puzzles. The animation was beautiful as well. Similar to Ghibli. I’m going to check out their other titles as well.
