About This Content

The Backbone Original Soundtrack by Danshin and Arooj Aftab encompasses 30 tracks composed exclusively for Backbone and Backbone: Prologue.

Featuring an incredible fusion of triphop and doom jazz instrumentation, these evocative pieces will allow you to vicariously relive the stories of Backbone’s characters and their journeys set in dystopian Vancouver, BC.

The inspiration for both the game and the jazzy undertones of the soundtrack stem from a random encounter with a raccoon in Danshin’s backyard, after many attempts to scare it off with sticks and household items it was a loudly blown trumpet that finally convinced the visitor to leave.

After Danshin began composing the Backbone OST and posting samples online, well-known experimental artist Arooj Aftab reached out and asked to contribute and collaborate as a composer and vocalist.

About Backbone

It takes a certain kind of person to take on the greatest evils of the world. A keen intellect. Relentless courage. An unstoppable desire to see justice done. 

But you? You’re just trying to make rent.

You’re not special. You’re not a hero. Thrust into unfortunate circumstances, you find yourself with no other option than to unravel what might be your biggest case yet.

Get to work, detective.

ABOUT BACKBONE
Backbone is a post-noir roleplaying detective adventure, in which you step into the shoes of raccoon private investigator, Howard Lotor, and explore dystopian Vancouver, BC, beautifully rendered in high resolution pixel art.

After years of small-time cases, lonely evenings, and just barely scraping by, Howard Lotor is swept into a job quite unlike any other before it. What starts as a menial case slowly unravels into something much darker, pitting Howard against the oppressive, systemic power hierarchies of the City itself.

GAMEPLAY
Backbone's gameplay is a modern take on the classic point-and-click adventure, featuring stealth, exploration, and elaborate dialogues inspired by old school CRPGs.

As Howard, you will:

  • Make meaningful connections with a diverse cast of characters in pursuit of truth
  • Explore both flourishing and decaying districts of a now walled-off

Vancouver

  • Uncover clues and collect evidence
  • Solve puzzles and sneak around
  • Be a raccoon

Post-noir dystopia
Backbone’s Vancouver is a dangerous place, bleak and dreary, but not entirely without hope. It’s a tale of a cold and existentialist world, interspersed with genuine connections and a bruised but undying drive to make a difference. Everyone wants to change the world, but not always for the better.

Stunning visuals
The breathtaking combination of high-resolution pixel art and 3D effects like dynamic lighting, pouring rain, volumetric fog and neon lights bring the sprawling city to life.

Evocative and unforgettable soundtrack
An original soundtrack by Danshin and Arooj Aftab is expertly crafted to create a cinematic, atmospheric, and simply jaw-dropping soundscape. You’ve never heard dystopian doom jazz quite like this.
