NoSleepGames announced Annie and the AI on Wednesday and revealed a major name as a member of the voice cast.

Annie and the AI takes place in the late 2020s, and follows Annie, a programmer who looks after her father, works on personal projects, and bends to the “whims of her sisters who don’t understand her.

You’re not Annie in this story, however. Players will take up the mantle of Esme, Annie’s AI that she’s developed. Esme’s function is to “learn by solving visual puzzles involving pattern and emotional matching of images sourced from Annie’s life.” It sounds like Esme will be your conduit to learning more about Annie and her family.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm and True Colors fan favorite Katy Bentz voices the titular Annie, writing on her Twitter account that she’s “THRILLED” to be involved and adding in her Twitch community Discord that she knows “you all will fall in love with” Annie.

Annie and the AI is set to release in February of 2023. It’s available to add to your wishlist on Steam today.
