Stela | Featured ImageThe Xbox One is gaining another console-exclusive indie title this year. Stela is described as a “cinematic platformer about a young woman witnessing the final days of a mysterious ancient world”. It is being developed by SkyBox Labs (Halo Infinite) and looks to create an atmospheric experience. An initial description of the game (provided in the press release) can be found below:

Overcome daunting challenges, treacherous terrain, and gargantuan beasts while traversing a decaying land. Manipulate the environment to solve elaborate puzzles and creep past dangers under cover of muted landscapes, all set to an original soundtrack. Survive sweeping environments including mysterious towns, haunting forests, and massive subterranean ruins brought to life in an atmospheric experience.

SkyBox Labs co-founder Shyang Kong noted the following about the team’s upcoming release:

Our focus was to create beautiful 3D atmospheres with depth and scale while remaining as true to the cinematic platformer genre as possible.”

We’re extremely proud of our work developing partner titles like Halo Infinite and Minecraft Bedrock Edition on Nintendo Switch, and we’re eager to bring that level of craftsmanship to a touching new experience.”

Stela will release on Xbox One and PC at some point in 2019. Prior to that release, it will be officially debuted at GDC 2019 as part of Microsoft’s ID@Xbox Developer Showcase. For more information on the team behind this new title, please check out SkyBox Labs’ official website.
