Lavishly Hand-Animated 2D Adventure Game Forgotton Anne Launches May 15

ThroughLine Games and publisher Square Enix Collective have announced Forgotton Anne is finally launching.

The 2D, hand-animated cinematic adventure game will launch digitally across Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 15th. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


Imagine a place where everything that is lost and forgotten goes; old toys, letters, single socks. The Forgotten Lands is a magical world inhabited by Forgotlings; creatures composed of mislaid objects longing to be remembered again.

Forgotton Anne is a seamless cinematic adventure with a focus on meaningful storytelling and light puzzle platforming. You are Anne, the enforcer who keeps order in the Forgotten Lands, as she sets out to squash a rebellion that might prevent her master, Bonku, and herself from returning to the human world…

Key Features:

  • Discover a beautifully realised world of wonder filled with Forgotlings – charming everyday objects brought to life, bursting with personality.
  • Uncover the truth behind the harrowing conflict taking place between an impassioned ruler and ruthless rebellion.
  • Harness the power of Anima, the energy that brings life to the Forgotten Lands. Use it to solve puzzles and command ultimate control over Forgotlings’ lives.
  • Choose carefully. Your words and actions can alter the tale being told thanks to a branching dialogue system that places the power in your hands.
  • Run, leap, and soar as you strive to guide Anne home, unlocking areas and abilities along the way.
  • Enjoy hand-animated visuals created using the same traditional techniques that brought your favorite animated movies to life.
  • Immerse yourself in a soaring orchestral score performed by the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra.
