The charming, hand drawn, point and click adventure that is The Little Acre will hit PlayStation 4s on November 22nd for $12.99 / €12.99 / £9.99. There will be pre-order and launch day discounts however. The game is set in 1950s Ireland and focuses on Aidan and his daughter, Lily. When Aidan seeks answers to his father’s disappearance, he is transported to a new land with equally as bizarre creatures. Things are made more complicated when Lily decides she wants to help and comes across adversaries of her own.
“The game has been a real labor of love for us here,” said Chris Conlan, Co-Founder of Pewter Games. “The original vision was to create something which felt classic yet modern – something I think we’ve achieved.”
“There’s a whole generation of gamers out there who won’t have played a point and click adventure before,” adds Ben Clavin, Co-Founder of Pewter Games. “Of course, those well versed in adventures will feel at home with The Little Acre, but we’re equally excited to introduce the genre to a brand new audience.”
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the Pewter Games team,” says Charles Cecil, creator of the acclaimed Broken Sword series of games. “They are full of passion and creativity, and watching that translate into a game they can be very proud of has been a real joy. I’m enormously excited to see how modern players respond to the point and click genre – if it goes well, I can see a real resurgence. I’d certainly be interested in revisiting some of our titles, too.”
