Anna’s Quest begins new dark fairy tale trilogy at Winfriede’s Tower

All good fairy tales have a dark side, and that is certainly true of Anna's Quest, a new three-part fantasy adventure that has just debuted with the launch of Winfriede's Tower.
Created by Krams Design, Anna's Quest follows the titular young heroine as she seeks a cure for her ailing grandfather. Warned not to venture out alone, Anna does so anyway, and soon finds herself "captured and kept under lock and key in a tower deep in the dark wood by an evil old witch. The witch has plans – plans that involve large, mysterious machines and cruel experiments with Anna. What the witch doesn’t count on, however, are the powerful telekinetic forces brought up within Anna, and Anna’s own plans of escape…"
As seen in the game's introductory trailer, Anna's Quest is a fully voiced, 2D hand-drawn adventure, but don't let its charming cartoon aesthetic fool you into expecting a Disney-style children's tale The game promises to be a black comedy "inspired by The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen… with a sci-fi twist!" You can check the game out for yourself in a playable demo from the official website, where you can also purchase the game for just $5.
Winfriede's Tower is the first part of a trilogy that indie designer Dane Krams hopes to complete before the end of 2013.
