Pewter Games, executive producer Charles Cecil and publisher Curve Digital today announced that the stunningly handcrafted point and click adventure, The Little Acre, is now available via digital distributors.
In order to celebrate this launch, Pewter Games released three new screenshots and a video interview between creators Christopher Conlan and Ben Clavin, in which they discuss the challenges and joys of bringing a classically-styled adventure game to modern audiences.
Created by the Dublin-based Pewter Games alongside Broken Sword creator Charles Cecil as executive producer, The Little Acre is a heart-warming, story-led adventure featuring hand-drawn animation, full voice acting, and a beautiful original score. Inspired by the marvels of classic Don Bluth animation (All Dogs Go to Heaven) and 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 land 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.
Ben Clavin, Co-Founder of Pewter Games, said:
“Now the game is releasing, we can’t wait to see how people respond to The Little Acre. The feedback we’ve received throughout development has been enormously positive – and now it’s out there.”
Chris Conlan, Co-Founder of Pewter Games, added:
“We’ve put our heart and soul into creating The Little Acre, so we’re absolutely thrilled to see it up in stores. While we know it’s going to appeal to fans of adventure games, we’re really looking forward to welcoming new players to the genre.”
Charles Cecil concluded:
“The Little Acre is a game I would have been proud to have created myself. To be able to play a small part in it has been enormously rewarding. I hope this prompts a real resurgence in the genre’s popularity, inspiring more teams to write equally wonderful stories.”
