There is something about the Behind the Frame trailer that immediately calms you down. It starts with a painter dropping her brush, and instead of immediately picking it up, she quietly stretches out. You can see his apartment bathed in sunlight, paintings on the walls, lush vegetation on a table, and the mood is set.
Developer Silver Lining Studio describes Behind the Frame as a “story-driven puzzle game,” and from the looks of the trailer, the gameplay seems to be a relaxed affair as well. You uncover pieces of an old painting and put them together. You paint your grumpy neighbor across the street and his cat. You make a good cup of coffee. The game takes place in a first-person perspective, allowing you to interact with certain elements of the room, which simply stand out for being rendered as 2D shaded objects. Sometimes the gameplay is interrupted by simple cutscenes.
