ThroughLine​ ​Games​ ​is​ ​an​ ​independent​ ​game​ ​development​ ​studio​ ​focusing​ ​on​ ​story-driven​ ​games​ ​with high​ ​artistic​ ​ambitions.​ ​The​ ​team,​ ​located​ ​in​ ​Copenhagen,​ ​Denmark,​ ​is​ ​currently​ ​developing​ ​Forgotton Anne​,​ ​a​ ​seamless​ ​cinematic​ ​adventure​ ​game​ ​coming​ ​soon​ ​to​ ​PS4,​ ​Xbox​ ​One,​ ​and​ ​PC.

ThroughLine​ ​Games​ ​was​ ​founded​ ​in​ ​2014​ ​by​ ​CEO​ ​&​ ​Creative​ ​Director​ ​Alfred​ ​Nguyen​ ​and​ ​Technical Director​ ​Michael​ ​Godlowski-Maryniak.​ ​The​ ​company​ ​name​ ​sprung​ ​from​ ​the​ ​narrative​ ​concept​ ​of​ ​a through-line.​ ​​ ​A​ ​"through-line"​ ​being​ ​the​ ​central​ ​idea​ ​that​ ​runs​ ​from​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​to​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​a​ ​story.

After​ ​quitting​ ​their​ ​day-jobs​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Danish​ ​game​ ​industry,​ ​they​ ​started​ ​working​ ​on​ ​their​ ​passion​ ​project: Forgotton​ ​Anne​.​ ​Alfred​ ​was​ ​an​ ​animation​ ​film​ ​director​ ​working​ ​with​ ​gaming​ ​apps,​ ​while​ ​Michael​ ​had​ ​been working​ ​at​ ​several​ ​local​ ​game​ ​studios.

The​ ​game​ ​concept​ ​started​ ​as​ ​a​ ​story​ ​and​ ​gameplay​ ​was​ ​then​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​allow​ ​for​ ​meaningful

interactivity​ ​in​ ​a​ ​story-driven​ ​game.​ ​The​ ​approach​ ​was​ ​to​ ​fuse​ ​together​ ​elements​ ​of​ ​Eastern​ ​and​ ​Western design​ ​and​ ​storytelling​ ​features​ ​in​ ​an​ ​original​ ​dark​ ​fairytale​ ​setting.
