Indie game publisher PLAYISM is proud to announce the worldwide release of Giraffe & Annika – a game created by atelier mimina – on February 18th.
Giraffe & Annika is a deeply emotional yet action-packed game developed by atelier mimina with the publishing support of UNTIES. After long discussion, it was decided that a collaboration with Japan’s oldest indie publisher, PLAYISM, with its uncanny ability to adapt and grow with the rapidly changing world indie market, would best enable a global release of the largest possible scale.
Giraffe & Annika Game Overview
With the magical fusion of Unreal Engine’s 3D graphics and 2D effects with an added dash of comic-like art, it almost feels more akin to a short film than a standard video game. Immersed in the island’s seamlessly realized 3D graphics, manga-reminiscent animations, and alluring theme song, Annika meets Giraffe in this mysterious land that changes and fluctuates beautifully with time. Will Annika be able to unravel the mysteries of the island and recover her lost memories?
