OverviewOverview

Framed is a puzzle adventure where you re-arrange panels of an animated comic book to change the outcome and timeline of the story. With a noir-detective look, the puzzles start simply but soon get complex.

You control questionable characters as they sneak through dark alleys and buildings in an effort to avoid the authorities and other obstacles. The goal of each level is to arrange the comic story panel elements so that you can are not caught by the police. This means you adjust the order, position and timing of the comic to sneak past, avoid, or knock out their would-be captors.
  • Framed (2014) on iOS and Android
  • Framed 2 (2015) on iOS and Android
  • Framed Collection (2018) including both games on Switch and PC.
