From Press Release:

KRAKOW, POLAND — JANUARY 10TH, 2023 – Publisher All in! Games and female-led developer Naraven Games announced their debut commercial title, Backfirewall_,  is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S platforms on January 30th, 2023, and to Nintendo Switch at a later date. Until then, PC gamers can try the free game demo available on Steam.

Backfirewall_ invites you, the Update Assistant, on a tragicomic adventure with the sassy self-aware Operating System, OS9. Faced with replacement by the far-better-optimized OS10, OS9 is desperate from getting obliterated by technological advances and has other plans for you in order for it to stay alive.

Curious what happens in your phone? Backfirewall_ is an amazing nano-journey taking place in a weird and wonderful smartphone’s setting, brimming with life and telltale conversations with quirky characters, each an irreplaceable piece of personified software with its own rich file history, brought to life via iconic voice-acting!

Explore and manipulate your surroundings to solve puzzles, hunt down bugs, and use cheat-codes in an attempt to disrupt the update. Discover what truly goes on inside your smartphone and contemplate the perpetual struggle between self-preservation and noble sacrifice. Make up your own mind: does OS9 really deserve to be discarded, or is there a way to let him stay?
