Milano, Italy – May 2nd, 2022 – Studio Cima is excited to announce that its upcoming narrative adventure game, The Perfect Pencil, will have a playable demo at Steam’s “Going Rogue: A Festival of Persistence” festival. Set to release for PC and Nintendo Switch in Early 2023, The Perfect Pencil is a narrative-focused platformer set in a strange world filled with perilous paths and unsettling creatures.
With combat and gameplay elements taking inspiration from games such as Hollow Knight and Earthbound with psychological depth of the characters, typical of games like Celeste, this combination is beautifully wrapped in a hand drawn art style. The Perfect Pencil aims to challenge players to comprehend and face uncomfortable situations that stem from their fears and anxieties – a topic very much in the zeitgeist of today – as part of a wholly engaging experience.
Engaging and unusual interactions, challenging choices, surprising exploration and fast paced combat will keep the gameplay interesting throughout whilst the narrative reveals itself. This game has its own language full of humour and allegories which it uses alongside immersive gameplay, to speak intimately to the player.
