Square Enix Collective Reveals 2D Cinematic

Animated Adventure ‘Forgotton Anne’ at EGX 2016

Publisher strengthens its diverse and quality line-up

London, UK – September 22 2016: Square Enix Collective™, fresh from the success of launching the highly acclaimed first-person puzzler, The Turing Test – Very Positive on Steam with 400+ reviews – has today announced its latest game – Forgotton Anne – in a worldwide exclusive at EGX, running Thursday 22 to Sunday 25 September.

Forgotton Anne is a beautiful story-driven, hand-crafted 2D cinematic adventure about the Forgotton Realm, where all mislaid items from the human world – old toys, letters, single socks – end up. With the help of the Forgotlings – creatures composed of these mislaid objects – Anne and Master Bonku, the only humans trapped in this realm, are on a quest to find their way home…

In partnership with PlayStation, Square Enix Collective revealed this latest high quality and diverse title live on the PlayStation Access stage at 13:00 BST today. Those unable to attend EGX can watch a recording of the reveal on the PlayStation Access YouTube channel (

Developed by Copenhagen-based ThroughLine Games, Forgotton Anne will be playable throughout EGX on the Square Enix Collective booth, located in the Rezzed Zone. The game will be released on PlayStation, Xbox One and PC in 2017.

Square Enix Collective continues to demonstrate its diverse and quality catalogue of titles, with four additional playable games on the EGX show floor, including upcoming Black The Fall, Oh My Godheads and Tokyo Dark, as well as recently-released The Turing Test.
