A new action platformer from Devolver Digital called The Plucky Squire has been announced for PC and all major consoles. Players can expect the game sometime in 2023.
The game follows a young squire named Jot who lives in a storybook. Jot is brave, adventurous, and helpful, but one day the villain Humgrump realizes he’s always destined to lose. His solution? He kicks Jot from the pages of the book so he can work unimpeded.
Jot then peels himself from the book and enters a new 3D world in the bedroom of the child that owns his book. Follow our titular “Plucky Squire” as he explores the 3D world and throws himself into pictures, and other 2D surfaces to solve puzzles and clear challenges; all in his search for a way home.
You can find the trailer for The Plucky Squire here.
The Plucky Squire follows the magical adventures of Jot and his friends – storybook characters who discover a three-dimensional world outside the pages of their book.
When the malevolent Humgrump realizes he’s the villain of the book – destined to lose his battle against the forces of good for all eternity – he kicks the heroic Jot out of its pages and changes the story forever.
Jot must face challenges, unlike anything he’s ever seen if he is to save his friends from Humgrump’s dark forces and restore the book’s happy ending.
Jump between 2D and 3D worlds in this charming action-adventure – solving puzzles, boxing badgers, flying with a jetpack, and enjoying many more delightful and surprising mini-challenges as you become the hero of a living storybook.Steam
The Plucky Squire will be coming to PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch next year.
