Update: We now have an official release date and new trailer for Stonefly, as Flight School Studio has announced it will be hitting Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on June 1.
Here's what Bohdon Sayre, the game's director at Flight School Studio, had to say about the game:
"Our small team set out to create something visually unique and mechanically original with Stonefly and we think players are going to love following Annika's journey and gliding around the world we've created."
Original Story: Creature in the Well developer Flight School Studio has announced Stonefly, a tranquil action-adventure game coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox One this Summer.
In the world of Stonefly, you play as Annika, a brilliant inventor who sets out on a quest to recover a family heirloom in an insect infested world. You’ll control a variety of mechanical bugs, tackling what the developer describes as “king of the hill” challenges, as you attempt to thwart the many pesky insects stalling your mission.
“Harness the wind and soar through the wilderness of Stonefly. Brilliant but naïve inventor Annika Stonefly must recover a lost family heirloom using her smarts and strategy. Glide strategically among flora and fauna, confronting hungry bugs, adventures, and memorable characters. Along the way, you’ll unravel a heartwarming story of self-discovery, family, legacy, and belonging.”
Anyone who has played Creature in the Well will feel right at home with Stonefly’s beautiful art style. The short developer overview promises a story that will take players to a variety of locations with numerous objectives to complete. It also hints at some story driven segments, which look utterly charming. We’re excited to see more about Stonefly over the coming months.
