Gamers will be well aware that E3 is currently in full swing. And while there are plenty of exciting announcements for gamers to savour, there are also some amazing releases that will capture the imaginations of creatives. Take the trailer for upcoming RPG The Legend of Wright, which uses a charming hand-drawn aesthetic.

Created by Japanese indie studio Desk Works, The Legend of Wright takes place inside a student's notebook. The game's distinctive graphics excellently recapture the look and feel of jotter scribbles, as we see dragons and ogres come to life on the page.
