Annapurna Interactive is partnering with Llaura Ash McGee and dreamfeel to publish the interactive visual novel If Found….
In the game, players enter the mind of Kasio, a young, rebellious and creative soul who is destroying her diary on New Year’s Eve. To discover her secrets, players must erase her words and her memories. In this fantastical-yet-realistic of the West of Ireland in the early 1990s, players explore Kasio’s world through her torn up memories, like moving into an abandoned mansion, hanging out with a band, going to a punk show, breaking into Kasio’s own house, destroying the universe, and finding out who Kasio can be. Sounds like it’ll be a little odd at points, but it seems quite distinct.
If Found… features beautiful, hand-drawn art by Liadh Young, and an electronic soundtrack by 2mello, Eli Rainsberry, and licensed music tracks by Irish artists. If you told a person that this game was made by a Dublin-based indie team, you’d respond that you could already sort of feel it.
If Found… will be launching on PC, Mac, and iOS. Further details are unknown, but a 2019 release seems likely so be on the lookout.
