TA@EGX 2016: Forgotton Anne Announced

By Sam Quirke, 1 year ago
What do you suppose happens to all of those objects that we've mislaid over the years? The odd sock magically dissolving in the washing machine, the scarf that we left behind as we staggered drunkenly from the pub. What if they all ended up in another dimension, a realm separate from our own?

That's the premise behind Forgotton Anne, a 2D platformer revealed at EGX 2016 by Throughline Games, supported by the Square Enix Collective.

Described as a "puzzle platformer with adventure game elements", you'll play as the titular Anne as she keeps order in the Forgotton Realm. This alternate dimension is peopled by the Forgotlings, creatures composed of the odds and ends that we've misplaced in the human universe. Your task is to squash a rebellion that is blocking Anne's journey back to our own reality. Anne's Arca stone will allow you to manipulate Anima energy to solve puzzles and activate creatures.

A "seamless" cinematic experience with a score performed by the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Forgotton Anne is making its way to Xbox One sometime in 2017.
