Frank and Drake now releasing in February 2023, new trailer
It’s been a year since we last heard about Frank and Drake, but we now have a status report on the game. Chorus Worldwide and Appnormals Team now say that the project will be wrapped up in time for February 2023.
Frank and Drake was announced in September 2021 and was planned for this past spring. That didn’t happen, so it’s true that the title is seeing a delay.
Here’s some information about Frank and Drake:
Two strangers are brought together as roommates by unknown forces in a conspiracy that threatens them both.
Frank is the super of a run-down apartment block, working by day and worried he’s losing his mind. Drake is allergic to sunlight and operates by night, forcing the roommates to communicate solely through sticky notes left for each other around the apartment. Despite their separation, they must forge a relationship, uncover the mystery, and survive.
The game takes place in the fictional American city of Oriole City, which Frank and Drake will need to explore for clues and to solve puzzles. Richly detailed and beautifully illustrated, the world of Oriole City serves as more than just a backdrop to the story and hide secrets waiting to be unearthed.
Play both characters alternately: Frank during the day, Drake at night. What they do during their times will affect what the other can do in the future. Even though they must work separately, their fate depends on the trust and friendship they forge together, which they can only do by leaving sticky notes for each other in the apartment.
The game uses traditional 2D art combined with hand-drawn animations overlaid frame-by-frame over filmed footage. This gives the game an uncanny feel reflecting Frank and Drake’s realities: two extraordinary characters trying to blend into an ordinary world.
Every path contains unique puzzles and mini-games. Some will need to be solved to progress the story, while others are optional and will uncover more of the rich lore and backstory. Designed to be challenging yet accessible, the puzzles and mini-games add excitement and variety to the rich story-telling experience.
The game’s story unfolds using a branching narrative, where decisions you make can have a profound impact later. Only through multiple playthroughs will you uncover all the secrets hidden in the world of Frank and Drake and experience the different endings.
We have a new trailer for the game below.
Frank and Drake will be sold both physically and digitally on Switch.
