Despite his efforts to do things differently, the Devolver Digital showcase this week hasn’t been particularly exciting. But one game that looked fun and interesting: The Plucky Squire, from developer All Possible Futures.
The game stars the titular character Jot, as he takes part in adventures in a 2D storybook world. The game showcases elements of multiple types of gameplay including platforming, puzzles, and boxing (of all things).
Jot and his company can jump from the 2D world of the book to the 3D world around it, interacting with various real-world objects and toys in the nursery. While it’s hard to read exactly how it will play out, it does resemble The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds meets Toy Story.
The game looks fun and colorful, with a mishmash of gameplay that will hopefully keep it fresh. It will launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC.
