Back in the day (around 2015-2017) I backed a lot of games on Kickstarter. Some were good, some were bad, some haven’t even been released yet. But since then, I’ve gotten significantly more picky about putting my money into games that way. That being said, the instant I saw A Tiny Sticker Tale on this year’s Guerrilla Collective Showcase I went to Kickstarter and backed it. It’s just that cute and cozy and miniature. Today, its release date was announced as being in early October 2023.
A Tiny Sticker tale is a short adventure, filled with details and a lot of replayability. Players join Flynn the donkey on a journey across Figori Island, discovering vibrant quests that require the power of a magical sticker book. Take anything from the world, turn it into a sticker, and stick it back in different places to solve puzzles and help new friends.
For example, there might be a river that needs to be crossed. Find a bridge from elsewhere, peel it away from the world and into the sticker nook for safekeeping, then place it over the river to make it crossable.
To me, A Tiny Sticker Tale seems kind of like Scribblenauts, yet it simultaneously isn’t anything like it. The gameplay is quite unique, and instead of summoning items and people you move stickers around to solve puzzles or just change the scenery to customize and decorate the island. Figori Island is a perfect place to take a rest after a long, hard day. It’s a fascinating place full of mystery and adventure. And completionists should have a great time collecting all the stickers available.
A Tiny Sticker Tale is made by the developer of Lonesome Village, which makes a lot of sense when you see the games side-by-side. It’s meant to have a cozy atmosphere and a nostalgic storyline to evoke cherished memories. The tale is filled with warmth, friendship, and discovery.
Developed and published by Ogre Pixel, A Tiny Sticker Tale will be released for PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch on October 4.
