Stonefly, the next game from Creature in the Well developer Flight School Studio, is set to be released in June.
Publisher MWM Interactive and Flight School announced that the mech adventure will arrive on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on June 1. Flight School will offer players a closer look at Stonefly throughout the month leading up to its launch.
Stonefly puts players in the role of Annika Stonefly, who is on a quest to recover a family heirloom. Annika will use customizable mech’s that players can upgrade and cosmetically adjust to suit their style, as they pilot around a naturalistic world inspired by mid-century modern design and nature.
“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,” said Bohdon Sayre, Game Director at Flight School Studio in a statement alongside the announcement. “We always challenge ourselves to put stakes in the ground outside the norm, and MWM Interactive have been a great partner to allow us the creative freedom to take risks and explore new territory. Stonefly is an ambitious project, different than anything we’ve made before, and a game that we are really proud of.”
