Stay: Are you there?
Nail-bitting tale where every second counts
by Appnormals Team
Available on iOS November 8, 2018 – TBD on Android
The PC and PS4 multi-award winning thriller comes to mobile!
What would you do if a stranger’s fate rested in your fingertips? And how would you cope if every second counted? Award-winning graphic adventure Stay asks those very questions: when Quinn wakes up alone in a locked room with nothing of note save for a computer hooked up to a chat room, you become his single ray of hope. Your choices – and your timeliness – will single-handedly shape his escape efforts… or lead him down the path to an untimely end.
Stay plays out in real-time, meaning that every minute spent away from the game is a minute Quinn is left alone. Drop out of conversations or leave Quinn to fend for himself for too long and there may be consequences.
Quinn is on the edge, and so every response matters. Prove yourself a compassionate ally and he’ll learn to trust you by sharing his findings and deepest thoughts. Fail, and his emotions may work against you.
- Real-time play – the clock never stops
- 24 chapters,7 different endings, dozens of life-altering choices
- Solve mind-bending puzzles
- Designed to be replayed multiple times
- Explore a myriad of rooms and unearth hidden secrets in subsequent playthroughs
“Mobile is a wonderful playground when you stick to a motto that invites players to “Play Outside the Box”, says Guillaume Jamet, head of publishing at Playdius. “Chroniric, Spitkiss and Stay are very different from one to another but they do have a strong common point: they are telling a very strong story. After Bury Me, My Love and A Normal Lost Phone, it was very important for us to look for the same story telling quality in our new mobile games.”
