OverviewOverview

Forgotton Anne (Forgotten Anne) is a hand-animated adventure that combines cartoon (Ghibli-inspired) storytelling with running and jumping puzzles. You play as 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. The Forgotten Lands is a magical world inhabited by Forgotlings - creatures composed of mislaid objects longing to be remembered again.

This theme of misplaced objects extends beyond a novel way to populate the platforming puzzles. Anne herself is misplaced and fights for a place in the real world. What results is a seamless cinematic adventure that tells the story about the value if things misplaced or set aside.

As you progress, interact with characters and complete puzzles your input deeply affects the outcome the tale being told thanks to a branching dialogue system that places the power in your hands.
