posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Japanese indie developer Atelier Mimina revealed at the BitSummit 2018 event in Kyoto on Sunday that its Giraffe and Annika 3D adventure game will launch on PC (via Steam and other planned platforms) in the first half of 2019. The company streamed a fourth introduction video for the game on Tuesday. The video previews the game's adventure mode, comic scenes, dungeon exploring mode, and rhythm game boss-battle mode.
The company describes the game:
Giraffe and Annika is a 3D adventure game for PC where you follow along with the cat eared girl Annika as she explores the mysterious island of Spika.
Each dungeon is guarded by a boss where Annika will need to defeated through a music-based battle system and fully synched animations. The game system and effects are all fully synched with the music.
Help Annika find her lost memories through her adventures on the island!
The developers began streaming an English version of the game's opening comic video in August 2017.
Atelier Mimina is developing the game using Unreal Engine 4, and Epic Games awarded the developers an Unreal Dev Grant last year. Sony Music Entertainment's publishing label UNTIES will publish the game.
