Publisher Square Enix has announced platforming adventure Forgotton Anne is out today on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $19.99. It’s developed by Danish indie team Throughline Games and published through the Square Enix Collective.
“There are few games that stand out in the way Forgotton Anne does,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “It really does screen anime. If you pause in play, you’d swear you were watching an animation rather than playing a game, yet the story the plays out is one so delicate, so captivating, it deserves to be housed in such striking surroundings. It really is one of the most stunning games we’ve ever put out.”
Forgotton Anne is a cinematic adventure with light puzzle and platforming gameplay. You play as the titular character in the Forgotten Lands, a magical land made up of all the various objects and things that go missing from our world.
“It’s great to have seen anime fans really take to Forgotton Anne over the course of its development,” says Alfred Nguyen, Creative Director and Co-founder of ThroughLine Games. “Whenever you’re watching a quality animation, there’s always the desire to get in there and interact with it. We wanted to take that desire and build on it, delivering a quality platform puzzler that brings life to what we think is an engaging story.”
Forgotton Annie is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s rated T for Teen with Partial Nudity, Crude Humor, and Use of Tobacco.
