The folks over at SkyBox Labs might be hard at work helping with development on the upcoming Halo Infinite, but they're also preparing to launch the studio's recent platformer, Stela, on Nintendo Switch.
The game is described as a "cinematic platformer", telling the story of a young woman witnessing the final days of a mysterious ancient world. The Switch release will be a 'definitive' version of the game and will include post-release content already available on Xbox One and Apple Arcade, plus a final update which is planned for all platforms.
Here's some PR, as well as a comment from Shyang Kong, Co-Founder of SkyBox Labs:
Escape monstrosities ranging from dormant beasts to haunting shadows and giant beetles. Solve massive puzzles intertwined with beautiful-yet-decaying landscapes including pale snow drifts, abandoned farms and massive catacombs. Experience the events leading to the end of a world accompanied by the refrains of an original ambient soundtrack.
Shyang Kong: "Everything in Stela - the music, the monsters, the environments - exists in service of the story. We’ve received lots of great feedback from Stela’s players and have worked to improve the narrative experience alongside ports to new platforms, making it the perfect version for new fans while offering those who tried it the first time around plenty of reasons to revisit the tale."
The game is set to launch on Switch on 13th March for $19.99. You'll be able to purchase it directly from the Switch eShop from that date.
Intrigued by this one? It currently has a Metacritic score of 72 on Xbox One.
This looks very promising.
Wow! This looks very interesting and the music with the environment.... I CAN'T WAIT to play it!
Played through most of this on Apple Arcade with a PS4 controller. Very stylish and some incredible attention to detail, but it ran out of steam before the end for me, and I never went back to finish it. The only thing that might have dragged me back would have been getting $20 worth of play out of it rather than playing for free during the month’s trial.
It looks somewhat interesting but its reviews from what I've seen are kinda mixed. Maybe I'll give it a go if it goes on sale for low enough at some point but it'd need to be a substantial discount I think.
Looks great. Reminds me, I must resist Gris and get that finished too!
There's a lot of moments in that trailer where the player-character is going to be super hard to see on a Switch's screen. I'm a huge fan of Limbo and Inside, so will likely give it a go, but it looks like parts of it might only be suitable for docked play.
I'm intrigued by this game but once again here's another indie game with a MINISCULE character... why is this?
Stylistically and gameplay-wise it reminds me of a combination of Journey and Inside. Count me in!
Looks a lot like Inside, which I loved. I'll most likely will pick this up and give it a go as it does look good.
