Convict Games has announced they will be releasing their NAVGTR award nominated interactive story STONE on Xbox One on 27th January. This stoner noir adventure story follows the journey of a lovable koala as he journeys through bars, clubs and theatres.
This narrative-driven noir adventure follows a koala private detective named Stone, as he sets out to piece together the fragments of his memory from his hedonistic night on the town. If being hung-over wasn’t bad enough, Stone receives a phone call that threatens the balance of his life as he realises the disappearance of someone special.
Players will follow Stone as he journeys through the bars, nightclubs and theatres of Oldtown interacting with an eccentric cast of anthropomorphic characters, and solving puzzles. There’s also a number of side activities to take part in, including dancing to brick-in-a-washing machine techno, drinking beer or cocktails, and even watching some public domain classic films.
“STONE may not be for everyone, but we hope it’s wild, artistic nature, and Australian influences resonate with those craving a narrative unafraid to ‘go there,’” said Louden.
“STONE is an interactive story I’ve always wanted to tell and play. I wrote, direct, programmed, funded and produced the entire project, and it feels incredibly liberating to break free and to release STONE completely independently.” said writer, director and Chief Convict Greg Louden of Convict Games. “Xbox One players can finally play our Aussie Stoner noir. It’s perfect for the couch and is absolutely stunning to see it on the big screen!”
STONE will arrive on Xbox One on 27th January priced £12,49 / $14,99 USD / 14,99 €.
