Square Enix Collective continues to demonstrate its diverse and quality catalogue of titles, with four additional playable games on the EGX show floor, including upcoming Black The Fall, Oh My Godheads and Tokyo Dark, as well as recently-released The Turing Test.



“Square Enix Collective is chuffed to partner with ThroughLine Games to bring Forgotton Anne to PC and consoles”, said Phil Elliott, creator and project lead on Square Enix Collective. “With its striking mix of Japanese-influenced animation, strong narrative-driven gameplay and world-class musical score – courtesy of the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra’s game debut – we’re sure Forgotton Anne will impress gamers throughout EGX and all the way to next year’s launch”.
