Publisher All in! Games and female-led developer Naraven Games announced that their unique and quirky puzzle game, Blackfirewall_ is available now on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. A Nintendo Switch version will be available later this year. Blackfirewall_ takes the player on a tragicomic adventure with the sassy self-aware Operating System, OS9, facing replacement by the far-better-optimized OS10. The game depicts the torment of programs whose code is regularly erased and replaced in the cause of technological progress. In this case OS9’s goal is simple: stop the phone from updating, and stay alive.
Taking on the role of the Update Assistant inside the smartphone’s inner workings, players will explore a weird and wonderful technological setting, brimming with life, telltale conversations, and quirky characters. Players maneuver through an amazing nano-journey where they can manipulate their surroundings to solve puzzles, hunt down bugs, and use cheat-codes in an attempt to disrupt the update.
Backfirewall_ launches today with a 10% launch discount available for 10 days on Steam and Xbox store fronts and is priced $14.99. The game is also now available on PlayStation and is soon coming to Epic and Humble Bundle.
