LOST WORDS: BEYOND THE PAGE LAUNCH TRAILER
Publisher Modus Games and developer Sketchbook Games today announced that they’ll be bringing critically acclaimed Lost Words: Beyond the Page to Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 6. The game, which released first on Stadia last year, tells the story of a young girl using written words to cope with life’s hardships.
When Izzy comes to terms with the trauma of losing a loved one close to her, she envelopes herself into a surreal story that evolves and shapes itself in ways no one could ever see coming. Check out today’s trailer to get a sense of the adventure that will unfold before your eyes:
Penned by renowned writer Rhianna Pratchett (Mirror’s Edge, Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider), Lost Words: Beyond the Page is a captivating adventure wrapped in an overarching and undeniably touching narrative. The title has earned a wealth of awards during its lifetime, including ‘Best Indie Game’ at Game Connection Paris, ‘Excellence in Narrative’ at DevGAMM, ‘Best Audio Design’ from TIGA, ‘Special Selection Indie Award’ at Reboot Develop and ‘Best Story’ at Game Connection USA.
In the game, players will interact with the words within Izzy’s diary to solve challenging puzzles and build unique platforming segments to progress through an evolving and aesthetically wondrous landscape. As players leap between the words on each page, they become useful stepping-stones and puzzle-solving methods to unlock each new chapter.
Lost Words: Beyond the Page is also supported by Creative England and Microsoft’s Greenshoots Programme, The Wellcome Trust, Games Co London and The UK Games Fund.
