What is The Little Acre?
The Little Acre is a charming, story-led adventure which merges the wonder of classical Don Bluth animation (All Dogs Go To Heaven) with 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 world 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.
Chris Conlan of Pewter Games accompanied the announcement with the following statement:
“The game has been a real labour of love for us here. The original vision was to create something which felt classic yet modern – something I think we’ve achieved.”
The Little Acre will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 22nd. Check out the new trailer below:
