Hand-drawn point-and-click adventure The Little Acre will bring a story of mystery from rural 1950s Ireland to PC on November 22 a release date trailer reveals.
If you’re still in the mood for some of the all-time greats of PC gaming, here are the classics.
The game, executive produced by Charles Cecil of Broken Sword fame, will look familiar to fans of its predecessor’s tradtional cartoon animation style while exploring a fairly untapped setting for game in general.
Aidan is investigating the sudden disappearance of his father, aided (potentially unhelpfully, judging by the trailer) by his young daughter Lily and their Irish wolfhound. In the course of the investigation, they’ll encounter strange creatures and, from the sounds of Aiden’s voice acting, some charming locals with the soothing dulcet tones of the Emerald isle.
The Little Acre is Pewter Studios’ debut, published by Curve Digital, but genuinely sounds like a lovely wee thing, and with chops like Cecil behind the scenes it’s sure to be worth a look if you’re still pining for classic P&C action.
The game will be available through Steam on November 22 and looks to be about $12.99 at launch. Here’s the trailer, replete with madcap adventures from the off:
