The concept of world building is often explored in videogames, but few games manage to create an immersive and engrossing atmosphere as the 'Forgotton Anne' game. Developed by ThroughLine Games and published by Square Enix, Forgotton Anne brings players into a "realm of wonder in which everyday objects take on a life of their own." This world may sound like a basic fantasy setting, but the game manages to create a unique world by setting the world in a place where all the lost items of the world are brought to life.

Gameplay is split into adventuring and puzzle solving as players navigate the world of lost objects. Dialogue will also play a large part of the game as players actions and interactions change the course of the story. Cutscenes draw heavily from anime and feature Studio Ghibli-inspired graphics that work to create a unique and immersive environment.
