Editors’ Notes

The concept alone bowls us over. You’re rearranging panels in an interactive comic book—changing the outcome on each page until your sneaky spy avoids danger. But Framed’s puzzle play isn’t the only thing that thrilled us. We got so caught up in the suspenseful story and moody visuals, all we could think about at the end was giving it another go.

Short, but sweet. 9/10

One of the most innovative games I've played. It's clear a TON of effort went into this, and the animation/music/details are simply amazing. Puzzles start off easy but quickly ramp up in difficulty, with twists added in like being able to rotate frames (which then triggers an entirely different animation!), or readjust frames in real time. Yet, for anyone experienced with puzzles, the game will only last you around two hours, and there's virtually no replay value after you're done.

However, due to the sheer innovation and beautiful execution of this novel game, I still gave it 5 stars nonetheless. Besides, considering that each individual frame requires a distinct animation, and considering that animation can change based on the frames sequence as well as whether it's been rotated or not, I can't blame an indie team for not having more stages lol.

Can't wait for the sequel coming out tmw! 👍

Interesting! Kinda love it

It takes a lot for me to truly like a game but Framed, I believe, is different. Though a lot more tweaks could be issued to heighten the placing experiences (settings, more logical gameplay, a story...). I would love this game even more if there were maybe some cut scenes that explain why we have a guy running away? Who is the guy? Who is the old guy? Who do they work for? (Well, I haven't finished the game but I'd love to know!) Adding these little features would go a long way and make this game worth its price. I may have gotten t for free this week, but I'd definitely spend a few bucks if I had the chance. All in all, love his game so far!
