A Noir Style Game, Stone is Now Out on Xbox One
Looking to play a little something different? Well, we think that Stone, a Noir Story, should fit that bill. It has hit the Xbox One today and we have a few details and a gameplay video for you to check out.
First off, the game is developed by Convict Games, a new remote-based team of ex-AAA developers, filmmakers and musicians who seem to have a bit of experience. They have worked on games like Control and Quantum Break and films like “Gravity” and “Prometheus.” The game itself is a single-player, third-person interactive story where a hungover koala detective wakes to find his lover Alex has been kidnapped. So yes, it has some LGBTQ themes to it.
Wondering what youll be doing during gamplay? Well, while playing, there’s constant reference-filled dialogue like a great hip-hop track and an eclectic soundtrack. So mechanically in the game you walk, talk, interact, dance, smoke, and drink. This is where the developers get the term "interactive" story, as there is a lot to interact with. The dev-team also have indicated that Stone is filled with licensed tracks and public domain cinema. They are stoked with the selection and think people will really enjoy the music and cinema we have available.
So, with all that being said, you can check out the gameplay video below to get a bit of a visual understanding of what to expect:
