Multi-award Winning Behind the Frame to Be Published by Akupara Games

Akupara Games is excited to announce the collaboration with Silver Lining Studio – a division of Akatsuki Taiwan – on their interactive fiction, Behind the Frame

Seen so far only at award shows and showcases, the game has already received seven awards including The NYX Game Award for Best Visual Art and The Game Connection Asia Indie Development Award in 2020. A fleeting narrative-driven experience, with its contextual and logic-based puzzles, has been well received for both its striking visuals and approach to storytelling. Akupara Games has taken on the role of co-publisher with Akatsuki Taiwan to bring the game to new platforms and promote the game globally. 

Behind the Frame is about an aspiring artist on the cusp of finishing the final piece of her gallery submission. Guide her brush strokes and solve a variety of puzzles to help complete her masterpiece; amid her brusque neighbor’s gaze and his pesky cat. As her painting starts to take shape, uncover an emotional tale of chance and artistry revealed behind unrelated yet familiar moments.


  • Paint, sketch, and retouch your artwork to complete your masterpiece and your memories.
  • Dive into and explore beautiful panoramic, hand-animated worlds inspired by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli visuals.
  • Experience an evocative story, through the eyes of a passionate artist.

Presenting players with a relaxing, eloquent tale that can be enjoyed at any pace, Behind the Frame is perfect for those seeking adventure in a serene, emotionally rich story to connect with and savour. 

Experience a game where there is more than what meets the eye, for every painting has a story to tell. Stay up to date with the teams as more is to be unveiled throughout the next month.
