‘The Plucky Squire’ is a ‘Toy Story’-style adventure about a living storybook

'The Plucky Squire' follows the star of a children's storybook as he discovers the world beyond his pages

Devolver Digital has revealed The Plucky Squire, an action-adventure game that follows a storybook character as he explores beyond the confines of his book.

The Plucky Squire received its first trailer during the Devolver Marketing Countdown To Marketing, where it showcased a gorgeous mix of 2D and 3D action.

The game follows a storybook hero named Jot, as he discovers a world beyond the book he stars in. As displayed in the trailer, this means that at some points The Plucky Squire will take players through charming 2D storybook pages, while others will involve 3D segments where the tiny hero explores a child’s bedroom.

As for the plot, The Plucky Squire‘s Steam page reveals that “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.”

The store page adds that players will “jump between 2D and 3D worlds […] 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.”
