A puzzle-platformer that's elevated by its winsome anime aesthetic.
Deftly written and designed, Forgotton Anne is proof that seemingly small, simple things are well worth treasuring.
A bizarre mix of weighty subject matter and cartoon presentation that somehow works perfectly in portraying a morally complex world and its characters.
This strange journey in the land of junk keeps you captivated and guessing what could happen next
You may think it's impossible to feel empathetic over an inanimate blanket, and yet, in Forgotton Anne it feels like second nature. And not just for blankets—for all long forgotten things brought to life in the magical Forgotten Lands. While the platforming is often frustrating, the game's captivating world, art direction, and meaningful choices more than make up for it.
If you can look past the flaws, there's still a rather lovely and charming tale here to explore.
A very interesting adventure game, capable of truly send a vast range of emotions about what we have forgotten . Be ready to deal with a poor implementation of platforming, anyway.

A gorgeous 2D adventure game with light puzzles, platforming and branching narrative choices. Some design decisions slow the pace down negatively, but the story and the reveal of your decisions have devastating impact.
If you're looking for really precise platforming, this probably isn't the game for you. But if you're looking for a narrative adventure with some light puzzle-solving and a lot of eye candy, then you should join Anne on her journey through the Forgotten Realm.
I think that anybody who wouldn't enjoy this game knows who they are. While I wouldn't put Forgotton Anne into the category of an essential for gamers of all types, I would easily recommend playing this game to basically anybody who would give it even a passing interest. It is the type of game that punches way above its weight, and it managed to surprise me. It's available today on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, so if you're still reading this, give it a look.
I was expecting a little more from Forgotton Anne, particularly after how the trailer portrayed the game. Even with that, there's a sense of beauty in it all. The puzzles, characters, and design will still manage to stir emotion in Anne's experience despite the visible blemishes throughout your journey.
Forgotton Anne is a little work of art with some very beautiful animated graphics, a good, albeit prolonged storyline and vivid characters. It deserves your attention!

Overall, Forgotton Anne is an ambitious title that successfully fuses gameplay with animation.
Forgotton Anne has the potential to be an eye-opening experience for some players.
Forgotton Anne has thrilled us in every possible way. Its story is packed to the rafters with charm, amazement, tension, and doubt. The gameplay satisfies in every key area with challenging puzzles and skilful platforming, and it's these mechanics that get to accommodate a gorgeous art style which will live on long in our hearts. You need to experience Forgotton Anne for yourself, because the package as a whole is really quite special.
Forgotton Anne tries so hard to look and feel great. The first part is easily accomplished, the second one not so much as the game strives to be an emotional, imaginative adventure, but fails to communicate with the player all the way through.
Deftly combining platforming, puzzle-solving and a non-linear narrative, Forgotton Anne is a uniquely beautiful experience that everybody should try.
Forgotton Anne is an evocative, artistic triumph that nails that feeling of a ‘living anime'. Sure, the puzzles are hardly mind-blowing, and some later sections may test your patience, but the beauty of the art and the gentle humour of the writing should carry you through these irritations. Animation buffs should dive in without reservation, and we'd recommend anyone with even the slightest interest check this out.
Forgotton Anne is a great strorytelling game, even if the gameplay lacks some challenge.

Forgotton Anne is a fantastic narrative journey propelled by an exceptional heroine. The Enforcer is strong, capable and shrouded in mystery; a case you slowly uncover while discovering who she is and where she came from.
