Are the news being spread in the world true?...

"Behind The Screen" is a suspense puzzle action game, set in Taiwan of an age when the internet was still not common, tracing the life of "a certain murderer", seeking the truth which has been bent and can no longer be distinguished.

Why did the young man who got arrested as his father's murderer had such an ending? Looking back at his childhood, boyhood, and to the moments leading up to the incident, the player will face truth and conflict.

During a nervous and mature childhood, incapable of separating reality and dreams, the world started looking like an eerie and fantastic place.

During his boyhood, he condemned the powers that be as an honest student reporter, and to get himself excited, he would impersonate ancient soldiers and politicians.

Did the young man, who ended up becoming "a certain murderer" that day and who still kept resisting, gain anything from facing himself?

The player will re-experience the murderer's life, solve several mysteries, and search for the truth through the eyes of the murderer.
