2D/3D adventure 'The Plucky Squire' announced for Switch
The makings of a real hit
Devolver Digital has just announced The Plucky Squire for Switch, a 2D/3D adventure. The game is due out sometime in 2023.
The Plucky Squire follows the magical adventures of Jot and his friends - storybook characters who discover a three-dimensional world outside the pages of their book. When the malevolent Humgrump realizes he’s the villain of the book - destined to lose his battle against the forces of good for all eternity - he kicks the heroic Jot out of its pages and changes the story forever.
Jump between 2D and 3D worlds in this charming action adventure - solving puzzles, boxing badgers, flying with a jetpack, and enjoying many more delightful and surprising mini challenges as you become the hero of a living storybook.
Equally interesting about this game, it’s the very first title from All Possible Futures, the company started by former Game Freak employee, James Turner.
I was a bit dismissive of this before I watched the trailer, I was thinking I won't give a Jot about this. But you know what, I was wrong, it really impressed me. That's a game to watch out for next year.
Woah! Now THAT's what I call a surprise!
