'Stone' Comes To Xbox One This Summer - Trailer

Stone is a hip-hop stoner noir adventure game that follows a gruff, loveable, fat koala private investigator as he pieces together his fragmented memory of the debaucherous night before.

World, it’s time to meet Stone He’s a koala.  He’s a dick.  He’s hungover.  And he’s coming to Steam for PC and MacOS later this fall.

As if his morning couldn’t get any more stressful, Stone receives an ominous call threatening to upheave his entire life, just as he realizes his “chookie” Alex, a lorikeet raver and artist, is nowhere to be found.

STONE unfolds as an interactive adventure game story featuring an eccentric cast of anthropomorphic characters and absolutely no frustratingly flow-killing esoteric puzzles. As Stone stumbles through Oldtown, a place teeming with bars, clubs, theaters and more, players can take a “Hard-Ass” or “Soft Touch” approach while interrogating a menagerie of talking animals with bad attitudes and a deep repertoire of Australian slang as he tries to understand what the fuck happened last night.

Players can give Stone a much-needed break during his journey by engaging with side activities including dancing to brick-in-a-washing machine techno, drinking beer or cocktails, making beats, taking a smoke break and even watching real and full-length public domain classic films such as Night of the Living Dead and Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages.

“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 may not be for everyone, but it’s overflowing with references and inspiration that we know will resonate with many that share our affinity for underground art. Our goal at Convict is to tell high impact and alternative stories that fuse cinema, music, art, tv and the best aspects of video game and cinematic storytelling,” said Convict Games writer/director Gregory Louden.

The Xbox One version brings their Aussie stoner noir to Xbox players and special support for Xbox One X with higher resolution and more.

Already available on PC (Steam), Stone is coming to Xbox One this Summer ( Winter Southern Hemisphere ) for $14,99 USD / 14,99 € / 1,750 ¥ / £12,49 / $14,95 AUD.

Music is also a huge inspiration for the Convict Games team, and Stone’s heavily-curated soundtrack features licensed tracks from several upcoming indie artists around the world. Each song was chosen to reflect the myriad moods in Stone’s story and explores diverse genres such as hip-hop, stoner metal, house and more.
