Forgotton Anne is a game you should see in motion

Video: a quick introduction to Forgotton Anne.

ThroughLine Games' Forgotton Anne plays like a puzzle-platformer, but while we're used to those being depicted in pixel art or perhaps silhouette, this looks more like a classic Miyazaki movie. Kiki's Delivery Service if instead of a broom, Kiki traveled around with a set of jump-enhancing wings.

And although it plays like the kind of game that's all about making precise leaps and pulling levers to manipulate pipes and elevators, its heart is in its characters. They're a cast of talking objects every bit as quirky as the collection of chatty teapots and candlesticks in Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

Forgotton Anne is available on Steam. Check out our review (opens in new tab), and if you like the look of the art here's a collection of it (opens in new tab).

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
