Developer Naraven Games originally announced that Backfirewall, a first-person tragicomic adventure set inside a smartphone, was coming to Switch sometime this year. Unfortunately, the game has now been pushed back to an unspecified date in Q1 2023. While we wait, you can enjoy a new trailer for the game above.
In Backfirewall, you are the update assistant. Solve wacky puzzles to counter the update and save the previous operating system from deletion. The fate of the System is in your hands.
Review terminal errors in RAM, party in the Speakers’ exclusive nightclub, navigate through the Wi-Fi bureaucracy, and explore other areas of a smartphone. Hunt down or create bugs, trim binary trees, master music-controlled platforms, collect errors, and delete data using special cheat-codes.
Gossip with quirky pieces of software—the sassy Photos, the insecure Social Media F, or the neglected Health, among others—and uncover their distinct side stories. Collect emails scattered about to discover a parallel story of the mysterious phone User. Finally, enjoy it all through meta satirical humor and fourth wall-breaking moments.
