Despite its efforts to be otherwise, the Devolver Digital showcase this week was not a particularly exciting one. The Plucky Squire from developer All Possible Futures was a fun and interesting game.

The game stars the titular character, called Jot, as he partakes of adventures in a 2D storybook world. This game features elements from multiple types of gameplay, such as platforming and puzzles.

Jot can interact with real-world toys and objects in the child’s bedroom and jump between the 2D world of the book and the 3D one around it. It’s difficult to know exactly how it will play but it looks like The Legend of Zelda meets Toy Story.

The game is bright and cheerful, with a mix of gameplay that will hopefully keep it new. The game will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Switch.
