Playing Forgotten Anne feels like controlling the works of Hayao Miyazaki. Gorgeously animated cutscenes segue into gameplay, the wonderful art shifting frame by frame in response to your inputs. You guide Anne, from a side-on perspective, through a mysterious dimension filled with sentient boots, teddy bears, suitcases, lampshades, and other forgotten belongings.
Take a look at the best indie games of the moment.
These ‘creatures’ are known as Forgotlings - the possessions of humans that are cast aside and left to drift in some strange dimension called the Forgotten Lands. Somehow, Anne - one of the few people who exist here - is also trapped in this place. How she found herself here, and what ‘here’ even is, are the core mysteries of this beautiful Square Enix Collective title.
