Sketchbook Games

Sketchbook Games believe that video games are one of the most powerful storytelling mediums and we use them to create unique, moving experiences. They’re currently working with renowned games writer Rhianna Pratchett on the multi-award winning Lost Words: Beyond the Page, an atmospheric adventure about a young girl aspiring to be a writer while dealing with the loss of her gran. The game is set between the pages of her diary and a fantasy land and ties the narrative into the gameplay in an unusual way, by having the player running on and interacting with the diary words themselves.
