Raw Fury and developer Eggnut have announced Tails: The Backbone preludes, a pixel-art prequel to the noir-narrative adventure game Backbone. Like Backbone, Tails will star anthropomorphic animals solving puzzles and mysteries in a dystopian Vancouver. It will be released on PC (via Steam) next year.
With four playable walking-and-talking animal heroes (Howard, Clarissa, and Renee returning from Backbone, with new character Eli joining the group), Tails promises “branching choices focused on an intertwined series of vignettes about change, circumstance, and consequence.” Those choices are tracked (presumably similarly to the recent narrative adventure As Dusk Falls), allowing you to see where you could've taken a different path and encouraging replayability.

Tails also says it'll feature the return of the “doom jazz” soundtrack style from the original game, created here by Danshin. Wishlist Tails: The Backbone Preludes now on Steam.
