Another entry into the interactive novel genre is slated to release in 2020, thanks to Annapurna Interactive’s partnership with independent developer dreamfeel. It’s called If Found…, and is said to be a stylish coming-of-age experience, featuring “intense exploration of family, community, connection, and isolation.”
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 story and uncover her secrets, players must erase her words and her memories. In this vivid and honest depiction 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 the band, going to a punk show, breaking into Kasio’s own house, destroying the universe, and finding out who Kasio can be.
If Found… will bring its hand drawn art, and an electronic soundtrack, to PC (via Steam) and iOS in 2020.
