Forgotten Anne tells a powerful story with intrigue, humor, drama, and a cast of wonderful characters, But what I like the most about Forgotten Anne is how it uses it's fantasy setting to deliver this story. Throughout the entire game, it slowly gives you exposition and it lets the story pretty much tell itself. You could say it can be predictable, but it's all in the delivery. Great moments one after the other; decisions that are easy but weighty enough that you will want to see the other side of it eventually, of what could have happened.
It's honestly a little tiring to see fantasy backdrops be used as self-indulgent window-dressing in most games nowadays, and seeing one deliver such a gripping tale through one deceivingly simple premise is a much needed breath of fresh air in games narrative.
