ThroughLine Games’ critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer, Forgotton Anne, has finally launched on the App Store. It tells the somber story of the Forgotlings, a collection of lost household objects who have been brought to life using a magical force called Anima.
Fans of the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of animated classics like My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away, will notice and appreciate Forgotten Anne’s similar hand-animated art style. Also like Ghibli’s best work, the game’s affecting story is enhanced by a soaring orchestral score.
You play as Anne, a human enforcer in the land of the Forgotlings who wants nothing more than to return to the world she once called home. In order to do that, she’ll have to work alongside her boss, Master Bonku, to put a stop to a potentially dangerous uprising.
The game’s story can be influenced greatly by the dialogue decisions you make throughout your run. And each conversation with the world’s inhabitants can branch into various different directions, meaning Forgotton Anne holds up to repeat playthroughs.
Exploring the world is made an absolute joy thanks to the various powers you can unlock along the way, and the game’s many inventive puzzles can be completed using Anne’s mastery of Anima.
This latest version of the game is the first to include cloud saves and 33 new pieces of collectable concept art. If you’re on the fence about which version to get, the iOS port seems like a great choice.
If you’re in the market for a great story-based game, Forgotton Anne is now available over on the App Store. You can also test it out first by downloading the free trial. It's certainly one to pick for those that love the community spirit of its fanbase almost as much as the game itself, and is one that you can join via Forgotton Anne's official Discord page.
