Backfirewall_ gets a new trailer, game hits Switch sometime after Jan. 30th, 2023
Fanning the flames
Developer Naraven Games originally announced that Backfirewall_, a first-person tragicomic adventure set inside a smartphone, was coming to Switch sometime in 2022. Following that, the game was delayed to Q1 2023. Just last week, we had heard the game would see release on Jan. 30th, 2023. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for the Switch version. There’s no set date for the Switch release yet, but all we know right now is that it’ll come sometime after Jan. 30th, 2023.
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.
