'The Little Acre' (ALL) Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 28, 2016 @ 10:28 a.m. PDT

The Little Acre is an enchanting, handcrafted, story-led, point-and-click adventure.

The Little Acre is a heart-warming, story-led adventure 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.


“The game has been a real labor of love for us here,” said Chris Conlan, Co-Founder of Pewter Games. “The original vision was to create something which felt classic yet modern – something I think we’ve achieved.”

“There’s a whole generation of gamers out there who won’t have played a point and click adventure before,” adds Ben Clavin, Co-Founder of Pewter Games. “Of course, those well versed in adventures will feel at home with The Little Acre, but we’re equally excited to introduce the genre to a brand new audience.”

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the Pewter Games team,” says Charles Cecil, creator of the acclaimed Broken Sword series of games. “They are full of passion and creativity, and watching that translate into a game they can be very proud of has been a real joy. I’m enormously excited to see how modern players respond to the point and click genre – if it goes well, I can see a real resurgence. I’d certainly be interested in revisiting some of our titles, too.”

The Little Acre is available to pre-order starting today across various digital stores on PC and from next week onward for Xbox One (worldwide) and PS4 (Europe) – with every player receiving a fantastic free digital art book on release, chronicling the conception and creation of this soon-to-be classic adventure. Please see official Curve Digital social media channels (@CurveDigital) for specific pre-order links. Please note: the digital art book will be available at launch as part of the Steam bundle. Console players will access the art book via alternate download, the details of which will be provided in the near future.

The Little Acre will release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 for $12.99 / €12.99 / £9.99 with pre-order and launch day discounts.
