French company Don’t Nod has announced the second third-party game it will publish. Known as Koira, this title is a hand-drawn adventure game developed by the Belgian studio Tolima, and will tell the story of a forest spirit and his cub as they embark on a musical and magical journey.
The spirit of the forest will rely on the abilities of his cub to overcome challenges and protect him from danger, and it will be a 2D game with an original soundtrack.
Game Director Ben Lega states: “Koira is an evocative experience that explores the theme of friendship with a little puppy. Through a thoughtful and minimalist approach, our story is brought to life, supported by the powerful combination of expressive hand-drawn graphics and a moving original soundtrack. This game is our love letter to the medium and we can’t wait to start sharing more details about it.”
As for the launch, the game is scheduled for 2025 and it will be released at least on PC through Steam.
