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, spoke about the game, saying:
“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, the other Co-Founder of Pewter Games, also spoke about the games release, saying:
“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.”
