Point-and-click adventures are meant to be fun, a little bit crazy, and ultimately utterly weird. Blame those from years gone by for setting the genre template but no matter what you say, it works. That’s the case here and now with the release of Anna’s Quest on Xbox – it’s just this one is a little bit darker than normal.
Available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S after having kicked around on the PC scene since initial launch way back in 2015, Anna’s Quest from Daedalic Entertainment has you joining the slightly disturbed life of Anna – and with her power of telekinesis, what Anna wants, Anna gets.

Priced at £17.99 from the Xbox Store, Anna’s Quest is a point-and-click delight as it gives us gamers the chance to full into this dark world full of humour and creativity. Puzzles are plentiful, the narrative is deep and the weirdness is on another level. But that’s what makes Anna’s Story such an interesting playthrough, and is probably what has allowed the game to pick up a ton of Very Positive reviews over on Steam.
With dragons, witches, trolls and talking teddy bears all present, it’ll be up to you to help Anna chat work her way through this puzzling life, talking to the dead and making the most of that telekinesis power as she goes. What unfolds from there, only you will find out by getting involved.
In all, the key features include:
- Light-hearted, courageous, bad-ass: Anna
- Unlimited inventory with special slot for a baby dragon
- Discover a Unicorn’s inner beauty
- Black magic and telekinesis – this time, not exclusive for villains!
- Classic Point & Click controls with hotspot-indicator
You’ll find Anna’s Store present on the Xbox Store and dropping the cash on a purchase will see you being able to play through matters on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. We’ll be one of those getting involved so keep an eye out for some review thoughts of how this plays out now it has come to Xbox very soon.
You’ll also find the game on PlayStation and Switch.
Dragons, witches, trolls… No one can stop Anna. With her telekinesis, unorthodox use of torture instruments, a knack for improvisation and the help of a shady fox she just makes her way. She communes with the dead, shuts off the local taverns beer supply and gets old ladies behind bars… The world of author Dane Krams’ debut on the game development stage isn’t as cuddly as it may seem. Anna however, is actually perfectly nice – or is she? It all starts with freeing talking teddy bear… Anna’s Quest unfolds a hand-drawn, grim tale with a good dash of self-irony.
