Square Enix has unveiled another gem as part of their Square Enix Collective initiative and this time it's about lost things in a 2D hand-drawn world. It's called Forgotton Anne.
It's another success story for Square Enix Collective which takes small projects from indie studios and offers them the spotlight to get feedback from members and to be within a chance of seeing their hardwork greenlit through crowd-funding platforms.
Square took to the PlayStation Access stage at EGX today and unveiled Forgotton Anne.
"Forgotton Anne is a beautiful story-driven, hand-crafted 2D cinematic adventure about the Forgotton Realm, where all mislaid items from the human world - old toys, letters, single socks - end up."
"With the help of the Forgotlings - creatures composed of these mislaid objects - Anne and Master Bonku, the only humans trapped in this realm, are on a quest to find their way home..."
ThroughLine Games is the creator of this 2D adventure which will be playable at the Square Enix Collective booth, located in the Rezzed Zone at EGX.
"Square Enix Collective is chuffed to partner with ThroughLine Games to bring Forgotton Anne to PC and consoles," said Phil Elliott, creator and project lead on Square Enix Collective.
"With its striking mix of Japanese-influenced animation, strong narrative-driven gameplay and world-class musical score - courtesy of the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra’s game debut - we’re sure Forgotton Anne will impress gamers throughout EGX and all the way to next year’s launch."
Forgotton Anne releases on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2017.
