Pewter Games, executive producer Charles Cecil, and Curve Digital were thrilled to announce that The Little Acre has arrived on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. They have also shared an interview between creators Christopher Conlan and Ben Clavin, which you can view below:
The title is available via several digital stores, including Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store, PlayStation Store, and Xbox. Those who purchase the PC version will receive a digital artbook as part of the purchase, while those who purchase on consoles can download it via the digital magazine website ISSUU.com.
The Little Acre has been created by the Dublin-based Pewter Games, with Broken Sword creator Charles Cecil acting as executive producer. It guides players along a heart-warming, story-led adventure filled with hand-drawn animation, full voice acting, and an original score. It has been inspired by classic Don Bluth animation, such as All Dogs Go to Heaven, and the wonder of a Miyazaki world.
The Little Acre is set in the 1950s in Ireland and follows the story of Aidan and his young daughter, Lilly. Aidan is investigating the sudden disappearance of his father and finds himself transported to a strange land populated by bizarre creatures. Young Lilly decides that she’s going to “help” her father and encounters some perils of her own along the way.
Ben Clavin, Co-Founder of Pewter Games, stated, “Now the game is releasing, we can’t wait to see how people respond to The Little Acre. The feedback we’ve received throughout development has been enormously positive – and now it’s out there.”
“We’ve put our heart and soul into creating The Little Acre, so we’re absolutely thrilled to see it up in stores,” added Chris Conlan, Co-Founder of Pewter Games. “While we know it’s going to appeal to fans of adventure games, we’re really looking forward to welcoming new players to the genre.”
“The Little Acre is a game I would have been proud to have created myself,” Charles Cecil said in conclusion. “To be able to play a small part in it has been enormously rewarding. I hope this prompts a real resurgence in the genre’s popularity, inspiring more teams to write equally wonderful stories.”
Here’s the debut trailer that was presented back in August, for those unaware. It gives a brief synopsis and overview:
