Any game which draws inspiration from the animation of Don Bluth (The Secret of NIMH, All Dogs Go To Heaven) and narrative scope of Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) should be a rather ambitious and well crafted title, and hopefully the new game The Little Acre attains such creative heights.
Developed by Pewter Games, the story is set in 1950s Ireland, as Aidan and his young daughter Lily search for his missing father. The environment is filled with bizarre creatures and while they attempt to reconnect with their beloved family member, dangers are just around the corner. The point and click adventure with its handcrafted visual style, is simply eye-catching and memorable.
“This game has been a real labor of love fur us here,” said Pewter Games co-founder Chris Conlan. “The original vision was to create something which felt classic yet modern – something I think we’ve achieved.”
The Little Acre comes out November 22nd on Windows PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 (a free digital art book is also included with the purchase). Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
