The Little Acre gets a confirmed Xbox One, PS4 and PC release date

-

The Little Acre, an enchanting hand-drawn adventure has today had its release date confirmed…and we won’t have to wait very long at all.

Arriving on November 22nd, The Little Acre from Pewter Games and Curve Digital comes in on Xbox One, PS4 and PC with a price tag of just £9.99 / $12.99 / €12.99 (although pre-order and launch discounts will also be available).

You’ll also get access to a free digital art book which celebrates the creation of the point and click adventure title, although in order to receive that you’ll have to pre-order from the relevant digital store – we’ll be sure to tell you when it arrives on the Xbox Games Store for pre-order.

A charming, story-led adventure, The Little Acre merges the wonder of classical Don Bluth animation (All Dogs Go To Heaven) with the magical wonder of a Miyazaki world. The game is set in 1950s Ireland and follows the story of Aidan and his young daughter, Lily. Investigating the sudden disappearance of his father, Aidan finds himself transported to a strange new world populated by bizarre creatures. Things are made slightly more difficult when young Lily decides that she is going to ‘help’ and encounters her own perils along the way.

“The game has been a real labour of love for us here,” says Chris Conlan, 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, 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 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.”

We can’t wait for the 22nd November to arrive!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
