Forgotten Anne is a stunning game set in a world that will remind you of the Studio Ghibli studio because of their hand-drawn characters and environments. The art direction is mainly down to the fact it looks like it would be from the same expert animator Hayao Miyazaki, who brought you the movies Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Howl’s Moving Castle.
The game focuses on just two humans, Anne and her protector Master Bonku who live in the Forgotten Realm a place where all the lost items end up when nobody remembers them anymore. Anne acts as the bodyguard, judge and executioner helping Bonku protect the peace from Forgotlings, creatures who are born from these objects like socks thanks to an enemy known as Anima.
From the start, the storyline follows the premise of going home, with Master Bonku looking to complete his Ether Bridge that will allow everyone to go back to the real world. Without it being just plain sailing though, a group of rebels look to intervene and thwart the plans of Anna and her mentor.
