Craig espied Anna just a few weeks ago, cheekily comparing it to Amnesia even before he’d seen it in motion. Now that the first in-game footage has been released, the whole world can accept that he was right to do so, although only partly. Anna seems to have a similar approach to interaction with the world but it also has sunlight. In a horror game! Outrageous. Be outraged below.
It’s a work in progress, which I know primarily because it says ‘work in progress’ at the corner of the screen there. Also because while it’s very pretty it’s not hugely informative. There’s a very good rock though and things do become a bit spookier once inside.
With three ways to work through the plot, each one of which offers about three hours of gameplay, Italian developers Dreampainters may be cleverly maximising locations and assets while still offering a good chunk of content. Seems sensible and even if the interaction doesn’t look quite right at times, there’s fantastic detail in the setting.
