Backwater Creek

Tucker hates this Town. Nothing ever happens here.

Game Description

Backwater Creek is a game about the most boring town, where nothing ever happens. You play as Tucker, an angsty teenager, taking a gap year, working at the local pharmacy until he starts community college the next year. Recently Tucker has found himself a bit stuck in a loop. He’s not sure what set it off and since it doesn’t make his life anymore bearable, he doesn’t care to find out. But don’t worry if you die, it’s not the end of the world.

Backwater Creek is a multilinear game, focused on storytelling. The text is accompanied by illustrations.  This game contains NSFW themes, though nothing too explicit.

Okay, let me level with you. Can you play it on your phone? Technically yes, but it will not be the best way to enjoy the game and it involves a lot of scrolling.

You can play the game online for free. If you want an experience free of loading times and feel like supporting us, consider getting the download file. With the download file you also get access to all the original unglitched illustrations and concept art. Either way we hope you enjoy Backwater Creek and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
