This is a quick bit to match a quick game. Anne and Beanie is a short adventure-ish game (and by short, I mean the credits sequence might be longer than the game).
It was made by a team of people headed up (if I am reading correctly) by Jason Yi Kai.
It features small cutout-looking people. There is power, and power is collected and stored and follows a small girl and her giant mechanical animal around. The visual aesthetic is the “core” of the thing, being more like a koan or a Dickinson poem than anything else, but I think the power of the game comes from Casey Hartnett’s score.
I’m not going to spoil it. You should go play it. It takes ten minutes, tops, if you are the slowest game player. It is point and click. There are smiles.
