Hello folks!
Today I'm here to write a bit about an indie game, probably unknown to many of you. As you can easily see, its name is Backworlds and it has some interesting features really new to me. By now, you can only download the demo, which is available for PC and Mac directly from their website: backworlds.com.

About the developers

The game is entirely made by two guys from sweden, Juha Kangas and Anders Ekermo. They are trying to release a full featured game while leading a fund campaign on IndieGoGo (HERE), unfortunately, it isn't going too well from what I see; This is basically why I decided to let you guys know about this.

A "not so intuitive" gameplay?

The official trailer says it all

Don't know how to call this, it's a 2D platformer, with another 2D world right behind the scenes, with your brush, you'll be in need to discover actually the "backworld" in order to find the right elements, bridges and utilities to keep on walking through the level. The graphics are quite simple but also damn cute, every colour matches perfectly the others creating a great visual sensation, like here:

But, theres just one single thing that I really have to admit, what the hell should the main character be? a green cat? Totally don't know, what do you think?
Anyways, as you already have read, the demo is free to download, so, why don't you just give it a try? it's a great way to spend some time having fun instead of dying in front of the TV or anything related to that.

See you!


  1. At first I thought "how original", but then I remembered... the creators of Portal made another game involving "multiple aspects of a single world" to get through, except for in 3D. This seems to have inspiration spurred from it.

  2. Have to try playing with this while on marijuana :D
