Throughline Games has a sequel to PS4 indie classic Forgotton Anne in the works, and it’s asking fans to help bring it to market with a Kickstarter goal set to expire in 11 days. The team needs €100,000 to ensure the game can be made, and is currently just over €40,000 short of it. Titled Forgotlings, check out the trailer above to see more of it.
PlayStation versions will be made if the Kickstarter reaches its initial target, with a stretch goal adding local multiplayer features. Here’s the premise: “Driven by a heartfelt story about things we have lost, this epic semi-open world adventure features novel dialogue mechanics and real-time combat that balances hack-n-slash with strategy and stealth, combined with stellar voice acting and a beautiful score featuring an award-winning choir. An unforgettable journey into an imaginative and wholly original world filled with wonder.”
Pledge rewards include anything from a key to play Forgotton Anne, an artbook, and a mention in the game all the way up to a chance to visit the developer in person and create a Forgotling yourself. As for why Throughline Games has turned to Kickstarter, the developer said: “We are in a situation where our current budget doesn’t quite get us across the finish line and a successful Kickstarter allows us to receive additional funds from our publisher as it reduces overall risks.”
Released for PS4 in 2018, Forgotton Anne was one of our favourite indie titles of the year, awarded a rare 9/10. We concluded: “Its story is packed to the rafters with charm, amazement, tension, and doubt. The gameplay satisfies in every key area with challenging puzzles and skilful platforming, and it’s these mechanics that get to accommodate a gorgeous art style which will live on long in our hearts. You need to experience Forgotton Anne for yourself, because the package as a whole is really quite special.”
