The folks behind indie first-person adventure game The Stanley Parable have been busy. Co-developer William Pugh is releasing a brand new short game along with English comedian Simon Amstell tomorrow, set against the theme of heists in Europe.
William Pugh has been quite vocal about the new game about to be released on Twitter and a countdown has been running on the website of Crows, Crows, Crows (A studio led by Pugh), showing a command console program in the background that is running cryptic hints about the game, whose name has not been announced.
All that is known about the game is that it is heist-themed and taking place in Europe. The above screenshots show a rather sterile, metallic looking environments that illicit a certain sense of discomfort and notion that one isn't supposed to be there. Given the offbeat and curious nature of The Stanley Parable, it can be assumed that whatever Pugh is working on, it will be quirky, if not mildly philosophical and existential.
Watch for tomorrow when Pugh, Amstell, and Crows, Crows, Crows' game releases. We'll be sure to share it here. In the mean time, check out what the other Stanley Parable co-developer Davey Wredan has been up to.
