Announced during the recent Devolver Digital June 2022 showcase, The Plucky Squire is an upcoming platformer with both 2D and 3D segments that follows the magical adventures of storybook characters who discover a world outside of the pages of their home.

Development on The Plucky Squire is headed by All Possible Futures, a company formed by two game industry veterans whose previous credits include The Swords of Ditto and Stealth Inc. In a recent Twitter post, Laced audio director Justin Andree announced his involvement, contributing music and sound design. An idea of what to expect from the music score accompanying protagonist Jot on his journey can be gleaned from the whimsical, heroic vibe of the announcement trailer.

The Plucky Squire is currently available to wishlist for Windows through Steam, and is due out in 2023 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Series X|S, PS4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.

From the product page:
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.
