FRAMED Collection brings award-winning noir puzzle games FRAMED and FRAMED 2 to Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac and Linux 

Thursday May 17, 2018 – Developer Loveshack Entertainment and indie label Surprise Attack Games today announce the release of FRAMED Collection--a compilation of the multi-award winning noir puzzle games FRAMED and FRAMED 2--for $9.99 USD/€9.99 EU/£7.20 GBP on Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac and Linux.

FRAMED and FRAMED 2 feature a fusion of unique game mechanics and clever narrative puzzles in a noir tale of stylish heists, fast getaways and nail-biting escapades. Players rearrange the panels of an animated comic book to change the order of events and turn the outcome from disaster to success. 

Releasing on these platforms for the first time, FRAMED Collection features an updated UI for PC and Nintendo Switch. Further, the Switch version retains the intuitive tactile controls of FRAMED and FRAMED 2, and is perfectly suited for portable play. 

A PC Deluxe Edition, which includes the original soundtracks for FRAMED and FRAMED 2, has also been released. This is the first time the FRAMED 2 Original soundtrack has been released anywhere. 

The winner of multiple game design awards, Hideo Kojima declared FRAMED his game of the year in 2014. Out three years later, FRAMED 2 also received multiple awards, and was listed on both the Apple AppStore and Google Play store as one of the best games of 2017.

With genre-bending design, stylish hand-drawn aesthetics, a satisfying difficulty curve, and an original live jazz soundtrack, the FRAMED Collection is a genuinely unique puzzle game experience.

About Loveshack Entertainment

Australian-based Loveshack Entertainment says if you can name the genre of one of their games (without making something up), then it’s not a Loveshack game!

Founded in 2013 by long-term industry friends and colleagues–Joshua Boggs (Designer, Programmer), Ollie Browne (Designer, Artist), Stu Lloyd (Designer, Animator) and Adrian Moore (Designer, Composer)–the studio’s first release was the 2014 award-winning noir puzzle game, FRAMED.

Critically lauded-–and named by Metal Gear Solid’s Hideo Kojima as his Game of the Year–FRAMED created a revolutionary mechanic where players rearranged the panels of an animated comic book to craft the story of a noir-styled spy adventure.

Building on that mechanic, and serving as a prequel, FRAMED 2 was released in 2017 and was highly praised by press and fans alike, receiving dozens of awards, including being listed on both the Apple AppStore and Google Play store as one of the best games of 2017.

Loveshack’s FRAMED Collection comprises both FRAMED and FRAMED 2 and is out now on Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac and Linux.
