This week we've got some sketchy cities for you to explore, but luckily also more uplifting ones! First up we have Backbone: a detective game set in a noir city. For some more color, Rescue Team 13: Heist of the Century is back with challenging time management levels, and... puppies! Lastly we have Weeping Skies, where another mystery awaits to be solved by you.
Venture into the dystopian world of Vancouver in the stunning point-and-click noir game Backbone, now on Utomik. As raccoon detective Howard Lotor, the search for meaning in your ordinary life unexpectedly drags you into something much bigger. Every choice you make will influence the story in different ways. It could also influence your own fate.
In Backbone, stunning pixel graphics push the technical limits of the genre and really bring the noir city of Vancouver to life. Though it deals with heavy philosophical topics and is set in a harsh world, the story is beautiful and profoundly immersive. It can be completed within 5-6 hours; you're going to want to sit down for the end.
Something tells us that it's no coincidence that disaster strikes wherever valuable pieces of art get stolen... Never fear, though, because the Rescue Team has just landed! And as usual, you'll be there to guide their every move for a successful op. Rescue Team 13: Heist Of The Century features loads of colorful maps and the cutest, goodest boys to lend a helping paw during your tireless efforts. Whether it's heists, natural disasters, or anything in between: it's time to go to the rescue!
