Curve Digital have announced that they will be publishing the hand-drawn animated point-and-click adventure The Little Acre, the first game from Irish studio Pewter Games.
Charles Cecil, known for spearheading Revolution Software’s Broken Sword series, will executively produce the title which is set in Ireland during the 1950s and follows the story of Aidan and his young daughter, Lily. While investigating the disappearance of his father, Aidan is transported to a bizarre world filled with strange creatures and it’s not long until Lily comes along to try and help out, facing her own troubles along the way.
“When I first saw The Little Acre, I was blown away by the game’s beauty and attention to detail,” said Charles Cecil. “I was delighted to discover how much of an influence Broken Sword had had on The Little Acre and was enormously flattered when Chris and Ben asked me to act as Executive Producer. It’s a game I would have been extremely proud to have written myself and I am very excited to be building a relationship, and friendship, with a very talented young development team.”
The Little Acre will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year. See a trailer below.
