Rekindle the past and relive your childhood; a time when every pathway was your playground, and adventure lay around every corner, if only in your mind. Lost in Play is your ticket to times long gone – a living cartoon where imagination and a sense of curiosity are the tools of your trade. Get ready to take a step back in time on the road to wonder.
Inspired by modern-day cartoons meant for children and adults as well as paying homage to Saturday morning cartoons, Lost in Play recaptures the spirit of play from our youth, when every sunny afternoon after school was spent adventuring in the backyard or gallivanting around the local park, casting an investigative eye over anything remotely out of the ordinary.
Lost In Play delivers a feel-good adventure where a brother and sister explore dreamscapes and befriend magical creatures. Lost in their imagination, siblings Toto and Gal must work together to solve puzzles and make their way back home. It’s a one-of-a-kind, family-friendly 2D adventure designed to rekindle a spirit of nostalgia amongst players.
The brand-new trailer showcases the madcap nature of the world brother and sister Toto and Gal are thrust into, also casting an eye on the aforementioned graphical style that serves as Lost In Play’s superlative signature.
“This is a game you and I can play in front of our kids to show them a little slice of our collective childhoods,” says Yuval Markovich, co-founder at Happy Juice Games. “That’s why we were so inspired by the spirit of the cartoons we all grew up watching, using the sense of adventure they convey to connect with the younger generation. Recapturing that magic that we tend to lose when we get older is what we set out to achieve, and we think people will enjoy finding the charm, the nostalgia, and the feel-good factor whilst they’re Lost in Play.”
