The Plucky Squire is an eye-catching adventure game where you switch between 2D and 3D environments, and it’s being made by former Pokémon artist James Turner.
Turner, if you’re unfamiliar, is a British designer who spent more than a decade at Pokémon maker Game Freak, and was one of its first Western employees. Now he’s formed his own indie studio, All Possible Futures.

The Plucky Squire is set to launch for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2023. One to keep an eye on!
