Lost Words: Beyond the Page

Lost Words is a multi-award winning atmospheric puzzler set in the pages of a diary with a story by renowned games writer Rhianna Pratchett. The game sees the player interacting with different words to solve puzzles. It features a strong narrative element and ties the story into the gameplay in a unique way, by having the player stand on and interact with the diary words themselves.

Players explore the diary of Izzy, a young girl aspiring to be a writer while dealing with the illness of her gran. To help her cope with what she’s dealing with in the real world, Izzy is writing a story set in the fantasy world of Estoria, about a young adventurer desperately trying to save her village.
