Cinematic adventure game Forgotton Anne gets a brand new story trailer. Inspired by Japanese animation and set in a charming world of forgotten objects, the game will be published by the Square Enix Collective later this year.
Forgotton Anne Bringing Its Gorgeous 2D Style to PC and Consoles
As a new story trailer for the game explains, Forgotton Anne stars a woman named Anne who is an enforcer in the Forgotten Lands. The Forgotten Lands is a place where lost and discarded objects (called Forgottlings), including socks and toys and letters, turn up and it’s Anne’s job to crush these objects’ growing “rebellion.”
The rebellion staged by the objects could threaten the chance that Anne and Master Bonku (who are the only humans in the Forgotten Lands) have of going home. And so Anne, must make her way through the platforming title, collecting and sapping the Forgottlings’ life force (called Anima) in order to solve puzzles and find a way out of the Forgotten Lands.
The story of Forgotton Anne is magical and a little whimsical and could potentially be delightful or devastating depending on your attachment to missing socks. But the game’s art style also shines bright. Developer Throughline Games describes the game as a “cinematic” adventure but even this doesn’t do the game justice. It looks absolutely breathtaking and even in motion it avoids being jarring, which could be a problem area for any game that seems to be inspired by Studio Ghibli.
Forgotton Anne will also feature a soundtrack created by the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra and as heard in this this brief trailer and other short gameplay previews, the game sounds incredible. A final release date has yet to be revealed, but this is definitely one to watch.
Forgotton Anne will be released in 2017 on Windows PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
