Square Enix Collective Announces New Title at EGX 2016
There was lots of intrigue leading up to this years EGX regarding a previously unannounced game that the Square Enix Collective were exhibiting at the show. In a panel, it was revealed that the game in question is a 2D adventure called Forgotton Anne. Visitors to the event got to see and play the game in its first ever outing.
Forgotton Anne is set in a world connected to our own in which everything that we forget or mislay ends up. Old toys, misplaced scarves and hats and even the ever elusive missing sock end up in a place called the Forgotten Realm. They can form together to create creatures called the "Forgotlings". As well as all these items, there are two humans trapped in the realm called Anne and Master Bonku. With the help of the Forgotlings, Anne and Master Bonku must try and find their way home to the real world.
The game has been developed by the Copenhagen-based studio ThroughLine Games and is being published through the Square Enix Collective, an initiative that gives indie developers help in getting their games "out there" and noticed. The game will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2017.
