Fran Bow is a creepy adventure game that tells the story of Fran, a young girl struggling with a mental disorder and an unfair destiny.

After witnessing the gruesome and mysterious loss of her parents, found dismembered at their home, Fran rushes into the woods, together with her only friend, Mr. Midnight, a black cat that Fran had previously received as a present from her parents.

In the forest, Fran goes into shock over the loss of her parents and when she recovers, she’s at Oswald Asylum, an oppressive mental institution for children, and Mr. Midnight is nowhere to be found.

After having a dream about her beloved cat, Fran decides to escape from the mental institution to find him and go back home to Aunt Grace, her only living relative.

The last development update video of Fran Bow!

Do you also like to see the raw behind the scenes footage of cool movies, games, artists or anything you liked? Because we love those! Especially the ones where they show a normal average day of doing stuff, where we get to see behind the fancy curtains you normally see. Well, if you do, then you will love our last dev video, because it's super long and very raw from the entire process of making Fran Bow!

This wasn't planned though, because what we had planned while filming everything for the past years was to make a full awesome documentary where we get into the details of everything. We made a human error by choosing to trust all our video material to one single backup harddrive. By Murphy's law, the harddrive had to completely die in silence the day we sat down to edit it all together. This led to a lot of drama in the apartment, but after the storm we got the idea of just getting everything we could find and placing them in one last video update, beginning from the start and ending at just a couple of days ago.

Watching it for ourselves, it also works as a reminder and a memory to where we came from and how we started out in game development, so it's a very special video for us! It's also the result of still not giving up, even if the crap hits your face with smelly underpants.

It will soon be 10 months after the release of our first big game Fran Bow and today we can almost feel like we are done with everything and can move on to the next project 100%. There are so many projects in mind now that it's going to be a very exciting time ahead!

We hope you like the video! If not, that's fine too, we still love you!

Thank you!!! <3

So I just accidently seen word "Från" and added "Bo". From Swedish language it translated "In life empathy or experience". I'am I right probably programmer have thought about it?

Interesting!Nothing we thought about.. do you mean Från Bo? In that case it should translate to "from live/stay/nest" :) Your translation was more mysterious tho!
